TPE for food contact applications: Hot beverages
Thermoplastic Elastomers by KRAIBURG TPE meet the highest quality requirements, especially in the field of coffee machine applications. Whether funnel systems for coffee beans, sealing functions in the machine, design elements or classic milk hoses, our product portfolio enables us to meet every customer requirement.
To make sure that users - whether in a private or commercial environment - can concentrate fully on the essentials, our TPE solutions ensure that the machines can be operated safely, easily and conveniently. Because in addition to the quality of the bean, the perfect hot beverage also depends on many details - and to guarantee that these fit, professionals rely on materials by KRAIBURG TPE:
Non-slip and color-resistant feet are a must for safety, and precisely fitting funnel solutions ensure convenient and safe bean filling completely without abrasion.
The push buttons must be visually appealing, optionally with backlighting effect and score points haptically - and of course enable easy operation. The high-quality milk hoses also play a central role, because the milk supply must remain clean at all times.
