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.
