  • Thermoplastic Elastomers
    Thermoplastic elastomers (TPEs) have two big advantages over the conventional thermoset (vulcanized) types -- processing ease and speed. Other compelling reasons for considering the TPEs are recyclability of scrap, lower energy costs for processing, and the availability of standard, uniform grades
  • What Are Thermoplastic Elastomers (TPE)?
    Thermoplastic elastomers (TPE) are a group of rubber-like materials that combine the processing strengths of thermoplastics with the best qualities of thermoset rubbers. As their name suggests, thermoplastics are temperature-sensitive plastics that become soft or even fluid when heated
  • Mixing of Vulcanisable Rubbers and Thermoplastic Elastomers
    Mixing of Vulcanisable Rubbers and Thermoplastic Elastomers. Describing the current state of the art in mixing from a practical viewpoint, this report offers a historical background against which the latest developments are set, and summarizes the range of mixing techniques applied in the industry.
  • Thermoplastic Elastomer (TPE) Market Growth Continues
    TPEs, a varied class of compounds that are easier and greener to process than thermosets, are gaining acceptance in industries including automotive and medical. Thermoplastic elastomers (TPEs) are showing up in more and more places these days. The array of polymers that fall under the TPE umbrella
  • The Rapra Collection of Infrared Spectra of Rubbers, Plastics and Thermoplastic Elastomers, Third Edition
    The Rapra Collection of Infrared Spectra of Rubbers, Plastics and Thermoplastic Elastomers, Third Edition. Including copolymers and blends, which are in current use, this book provides a set of transmission and pyrolysate spectra of a comprehensive range of technically important rubber and plastic
  • Investigation of the Oxidative Stability of Polyolefi ns and Thermoplastic Elastomers by Means of DSC
    Oxidative-induction time (OIT) measurements allow for characterization of the long-term stability of hydrocarbons. For determination of the oxidative stability, standardized test methods by means of DSC (Differential Scanning Calorimetry) are used. OIT tests by means of DSC are internationally
  • Medical Device Link . Thermoplastic Vulcanizates in Medical Applications
    presumed biological inertness. Butyl rubber has been the most common choice for closures, given that its high permeation resistance enables it to protect oxygen- and water-sensitive drugs. The use of thermoplastic elastomers (TPEs) in medical applications has also grown steadily, with 1996 estimated
  • Medical Device Link . Bonding Elastomers with Adhesives
    From natural rubber discovered in the hevea brasiliensis plants of the Amazon Valley to thermoplastic elastomers designed in modern research laboratories, elastomers have found an important niche in the materials arsenal of today's medical device designer. The growing number of design applications
