Thermoplastic Copolyester (TPC) Material

Thermoplastic Copolyester, or TPC is a high-performance and high-temperature performance elastomer alloy, with good chemical and abrasion resistance. It has the features of thermoset rubber and the processing performance of engineered plastics. Thermoplastic elastomers give the ability to stretch to moderate elongations and return to its near original shape, thus creating a longer life and better physical range than other materials. They have outstanding thermal properties and material stability when exposed to a broad range of temperatures.
