Shin Kyung’s FREELOCK Wire Closure System with Soft-Touch Dial Molding in THERMOLAST K

May 21 2018

KRAIBURG TPE informed that a unique new shoe lacing system developed by Shin Kyung Inc. (Korea) is manufactured using their innovative rotary dial, overmolded with THERMOLAST K compound to provide both enhanced functionality and aesthetics.

Lacing and unlacing shoes can be a cumbersome task, especially for children and seniors. Moreover, with conventional shoe laces it can be time-consuming to adjust to the right level of tightness, which can be critical for both a comfortable fit and safety - particularly for demanding activities such as running and other sports. Shin Kyung’s patented FREELOCK wire closure system eliminates these challenges with an innovative mechanism for tightening, securing and loosening laces by means of multiple wires contracted or released as needed by a simply twist of a rotary dial.

The dial of the FREELOCK system is based on a two-component design comprising a polycarbonate base overmolded with THERMOLAST K from KRAIBURG TPE. The thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) compound was selected for its ability to combine excellent processing characteristics with superior tensile strength and aesthetics.
