I am hoping to get some clarity regarding a TPE we use for a kitchen sink strainer.
Background: We make a clog-resistant, non-stick kitchen sink strainer. We are being required to support our "claim" of the non stick nature of the product. We find it to be non-stick because of the smooth finish and the SEBS-based TPE material used, however we aren't sure what characteristics of SEBS-based materials, if any, would lead to a naturally non-stick surface.
I have been doing some searching and can't find any specific information.
Is SEBS naturally -phobic like teflon type materials? It sure seems like it anecdotally, but I am not familiar enough with the chemical makeup to say exactly what it is that makes it so.
Any thoughts from the collective would be greatly appreciated.
