What is TPE?
“TPE” stands for Thermoplastic Elastomer. TPE is a type of material that combines the characteristics of thermoplastics and elastomers. It exhibits the flexibility and elasticity of rubber, while also being melt-processable like plastics. TPEs are used in a wide range of applications where both the soft, flexible nature of rubber and the ease of processing of plastics are required.
Process: Injection Molding
Colors: Custom Colors
Price: Depend on performance requirements
Application: automotive, consumer goods, medical devices, electronics, packaging, and more.
Recommended Wall Thickness: 1mm-10mm or even thicker
The specific type of TPE selected depends on the desired properties, application requirements, and processing methods. The table below shows the typical properties.
