Unusual TPE Used in Swim Fin for Amputees
from Plastics Technology
Amp Fin, a new swim dive fin designed specifically for amputees, resulted from S&E Specialty Polymers LLC, partnering with Amp Fins, LLC, a Maine company that designed and developed the novel patent-pending product. A key challenge in this seven-year development was the material. It needed to have the proper durometer soft enough to prevent chafing but firm enough to both make a strong push in the water and stand on itself without deforming.
