What is TPV?
“TPV” stands for Thermoplastic Vulcanizate. TPV is a type of thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) that is produced by blending a thermoplastic material with a crosslinked rubber material, typically EPDM (ethylene propylene diene monomer) rubber. This combination of materials results in a material with properties that combine the characteristics of both plastics and rubber.
Process: Injection Molding
Colors: Custom Colors
Price: Depend on performance equirements
Application: automotive parts, industrial components, consumer goods, seals, gaskets, and more.
Recommended Wall Thickness: 1mm-10mm or even thicker
TPVs provide a balance between the advantages of thermoplastics and rubber, offering properties such as flexibility, chemical resistance, and ease of processing. Their ability to be molded and processed using conventional equipment makes them a versatile choice for various applications. The table below shows the typical properties.
|Hardness (Shore A)||40 – 90|
|Tensile Strength (MPa)||Good|
|Elongation at Break (%)||Excellent|
|Tear Strength (N/mm)||Good|
|Temperature Range (°C)||-40 to 120|
|Adhesion to Metals||Good|
|UV and Weather Resistance||Good|
