Incorporating TPEs in the design of the Kodak Sportmax disposable camera provided multiple benefits, says Walt Ripple, director of marketing at resin supplier GLS Corp.

“We first wanted to incorporate a soft touch, but then realized it was very easy to add a bright color with the TPE,” says Ripple.

Ultimately the TPE also provided waterproofing and better shock resistance. The latter benefit allowed designers to select a less costly grade of resin for the camera housing.
