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

|UV and Weather Resistance
High-performance plastics are being widely used and are gradually replacing some traditional materials such as bronze, stainless steel, aluminum and ceramics. Important reasons for the
In the realm of manufacturing, injection molding stands as a pivotal process, transforming raw materials into complex and precise products. It’s famous for its efficiency
