The fabrication

 

In comparison with mass commodities, Healthy FLY is made from a food-safe TPE material, which contains raw ingredients that have been listed and approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) and the BfR (Bundesinstitut für Risikobewertung - Federal Institute for Risk Assessment).  


TPE is the abbreviation for thermoplastic elastomers, which are a special plastic granulate. The conventional flexible frisbee discs are produced from a natural rubber; this rubber is mixed with sulphur, so that the industry can process it further. For this reason, the smell of many products made of rubber takes some getting used to.

 

There are fundamental differences between these ingredients and their processing methods. The TPE granulate is heated to over 200°C and then sprayed into a cooled injection mould where it freezes. Rubber, on the other hand, is warmed to approx. 80°C and sprayed into a hot form, in which it hardens (vulcanises). The advantage of TPE is that it can be reused as many times as you want. For example, defective parts are finely ground so that they form granulate again. The obtained regenerated rubber still has the same properties, so it can be reheated and reprocessed. The granulate ingredients do cost a lot more than raw rubber; however, it is not possible to recycle rubber.

 

For this reason, we use materials, which are not only kind to your beloved,

but also to the environment!
