Santoprene™ TPV by ExxonMobil

With more than 40 years of market presence, ExxonMobil Chemical has established itself as the global standard for engineered TPV, delivering advanced solutions and support services that help customers manufacture high-performance products that combine the characteristics of vulcanized rubber with the processing ease of thermoplastics. Santoprene™ TPVs offer sealing solutions that are both durable and attractive for a variety of market segments.

Shaping the future with Santoprene™ thermoplastic vulcanizates (TPVs)

The increased demand on vehicles in the new mobility are driving OEMs to partner with innovative companies like ExxonMobil to create vehicles with a better driver experience, while controlling costs and delivering on sustainability targets. With Santoprene thermoplastic vulcanizates (TPVs) in the supply chain, OEMs can focus on systems and TPV for a world of radically different vehicles by using lighter-weight materials that offer long-term, more consistent performance. You can expand and integrate designs while adopting new assembly processes, using fewer parts and eliminating many costly steps. Compared to EPDM, Santoprene can help improve the sustainable performance of a vehicle during the manufacturing process, via the full recyclability of scrap material during production, the weight reduction and the potential for recycling at the end-of -life when properly dismantled. Santoprene™ TPVs are high-performance elastomers used in the automotive, building and construction, and industrial markets, and in consumer products.

How Santoprene™ is driving the switch from EPDM to TPVs

Santoprene™ TPV is a proven material solution that expands your design possibilities and lets you benefit from greater simplicity, savings and sustainability when compared to EPDM (ethylene propylene diene polymethylene backbone) or other thermoset rubbers. SantopreneTM TPV is an ‘off-the-shelf’ material that’ behaves like a rubber but processes like a plastic and readily available in the automotive, appliance, construction, and energy industries, It is a proven material solution that expands your design possibilities, and lets you benefit from greater simplicity, savings and sustainability when compared to EPDM (ethylene propylene diene polymethylene backbone) or other thermoset rubbers.

Key attributes:

  • Excellent performance: Parts made with Santoprene TPV are not only strong and flexible, but also exhibit excellent aesthetics, sealing capabilities and maintain a high level of performance over the life of the part.
  • Reduced system costs: Santoprene TPV offer ease of processing and design flexibility to help improve value in a wide range of applications.
  • Potential sustainability: Santoprene TPV can provide potential sustainability benefits such as reduced weight, more sustainable manufacturing (requires less processing energy, recycling of scrap material) versus other polymeric materials like thermoset rubber (TSR) or ethylene propylene diene polymethylene backbone (EPDM) rubber.
