What is TPE material?

TPE is a material with high elasticity, high strength and high resilience of rubber, and has the characteristics of injection molding. It is environmentally friendly, non-toxic and safe, with a wide range of hardness, excellent colorability, soft touch, weather resistance, and fatigue resistance. It can be re-injected and bonded with PP, PE, PC, PS, ABS and other base materials, or it can be formed separately.

Advantages of TPE material?

1. It can be processed by general thermoplastic molding machines without special processing equipment.

2. Easy to recycle and reduce cost. Reduce environmental pollution and expand sources of renewable resources.

3. Energy saving. Thermoplastic elastomers do not require vulcanization, which can effectively save energy.

4. The application field is wider. Because TPE has the advantages of both rubber and plastic, it has opened up new application fields for the rubber industry.

5. It can be used for reinforcement and toughening modification of plastics. High self-reinforcing property, simplified formula, little influence of compounding agent on polymer, and easier control of quality and performance.

Classification of TPE materials?

1. TPE material for baby products

The product has the characteristics of smooth, soft, and good resilience. It is also scratch-resistant, does not irritate the skin, and can be in long-term contact with the human body.

Environmentally friendly, safe and non-toxic, with excellent processing performance, the material can be recycled, and it can be molded alone or bonded with PP and PE for secondary injection molding.

2. Food and medical grade TPE material

TPE does not require vulcanization, which simplifies the production process and reduces costs; it can be recycled, economical and environmentally friendly.

TPE also has superior chemical, physical and biological properties, such as good oxidation resistance, wide hardness range, non-toxic, etc.

Widely used in pharmaceutical packaging, storage and infusion of medicinal liquid and blood, various catheters, medical equipment accessories, etc.
