  • 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
  • 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
