Thermoplastic Vulcanizate (TPV)

TPV Material Properties and Applications

Thermoplastic Vulcanizates, or TPVs, are part of the thermoplastic elastomer family of polymers, primarily composed of polypropylene and EPDM rubber. The EPDM rubber within the polypropylene matrix is vulcanized, which provides good compression set resistance. TPVs offer a combination of elastomeric properties, like compression and tension set, coupled with aging performance and chemical resistance.

Characteristics and Properties
  • Dimensionally stable
  • Resistance to compression set
  • Low-temperature flexibility
  • Good UV and ozone stability
  • Recyclable
Popular Applications
  • Weather stripping and seals
  • Commercial glazing gaskets
  • Expansion joints and gaskets

  • Power tools
  • Electrical wire and cable
