Processing advantages of TPE

Processing advantages of TPE

  • Processing can be performed by general plastic processing methods - injection molding, extrusion molding, air blowing molding, compression molding, and the like.
  • The molding cycle is short, no need for sulfur and vulcanization.
  • blending with different formulations can change the surface texture and physical properties of the material, and can be adapted to suit the application.
  • The waste of the product during processing can be recycled to reduce production costs and be more environmentally friendly.

 

Comparison of TPE and vulcanized rubber

Thermoplastic elastomers (TPE) have the following advantages over conventional vulcanized rubber:

  • The production process is relatively simple, the molding cycle is short, and it is more economical
  • Recycling and flashing can be recycled and environmentally friendly
  • Higher plasticity, more flexible product design
