Thermoplastic Elastomers compounds

Ortofon works closely with European compound suppliers in order to develop and test new materials. The new materials elaborated by Ortofon have very good properties regarding acoustic damping and isolation vibration.

Our compounds comply with the requirements for environmental and chemical resistance, skin kindness, bio-compatibility and UV resistance. All Ortofon compounds comply with ISO 10993-5.
We also have the capability to elaborate new compounds according to customer requirements.

Each Thermoplastic Elastomer Compound carries its own specific Commercial code.
Please click on the Commercial code designation and retrieve your copy of the Technical Data sheet which includes the actual TPE Compound's technical data, applications and properties.

Polymer Base SEBS acts as a base prototype for all Ortofon TPE compounds.

TPE versatility

We believe Thermoplastic Elastomers is a material that has a long-term prospects with regard to active development of new properties and applications. TPE has excellent material and damping properties. For Ortofon TPE compounds please follow the link.

We have developed special TPE compound with improved damping properties that has been applied for optimization of our TA-210 tonearm, LH-10000 headshell and Hi-End phono cartridges the Ortofon Xpression and the Ortofon MC Anna, which represents the highest echelon of Ortofon phono cartridges.

Therefore one of our investment areas is TPE, which has been through a remarkable period of development over the past few years.
