TPE

Thermoplastic Elastomers (TPE)

Menu

Description

Thermoplastic elastomers (TPE), also referred to as elastoplasts, are a class of copolymers. They are a physical mixture of polymers, a plastic and a rubber with both thermoplastic and elastomeric properties.TPE behaves at room temperature like the classic elastomers, but with heat supply, TPE can be plastically deformed and thus also shows a thermoplastic behavior. Thermoplastic elastomers exhibit benefits typical of both rubber-like materials and plastic. The advantage of using thermoplastic elastomers (TPE) is the ability to stretch and return to their original shape, resulting in a longer life than other materials.

Properties of TPE

  • Slip resistance
  • High weather resistance
  • High chemical resistance
  • Shock absorption
  • Resistance to deformation
  • Excellent ozone resistance
  • Flexibility

Applications of TPE

Automobile application, household application, snowmobile trails, roofing material, medical catheters, shoe soles, soft grip surfaces, design elements, illuminated switches and surfaces, gaskets, cable sheath, interior insulation and headphone cable.
