Thermoplastic Elastomers (TPE)

Thermoplastic Elastomers (TPE)

TPE Material Properties and Applications

Thermoplastic Elastomers, or TPE are engineering polymers that combine the performance and flexibility of rubber with the strength and processability of plastic. TPEs can be stretched at various elongations and return close to their original state. Additional properties include strong shock absorption, excellent weather resistance, slip resistance and great ozone resistance. This nonhygroscopic, opaque, semicrystalline elastomeric can be used in injection molding, blow molding and extrusion.
