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.
- Dimensionally stable
- Resistance to compression set
- Low-temperature flexibility
- Good UV and ozone stability
- Weather stripping and seals
- Commercial glazing gaskets
- Expansion joints and gaskets
- Power tools
- Electrical wire and cable
- Automotive parts
