  • 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
  • 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
  • Materials Engineering: TPE-Sheathed Sensors Improve Pedestrian Safety
    A thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) is the outer skin of a sensor strip that will help protect pedestrians if they step into the path of a moving car. The sensor is currently installed in the "active bonnet " of Jaguar XK and Citron C6 models. It is between 1.1 and 1.4 m (3.6 to 4.6 ft) long and sits
  • Medical Device Link .
    , USA), which specializes in the design and manufacture of gastrointestinal endoscopy products, set out to source an alternative material. A thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) formulation from GLS Corp. (McHenry, IL, USA)
  • Medical Device Link . Soft and Elastic TPE Provides an Alternative to Latex Process Microfuses Radiopaque Markers to Intravenous Devices Adhesive Coating Technology Solves Packaging Problems
    Teknor Apex Co. (Pawtucket, RI) has introduced a soft and elastic thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) that provides a low-cost, nonallergenic alternative to latex rubber. Beyond latex replacement, Tekron 96-E0807A-03NT opens new design possibilities because it can be easily overmolded onto other
  • Medical Device Link .
    A NOTE FROM THE EDITOR After a bumpy start, thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) formulations are making more and more inroads in medical applications. New TPE formulations presented at K 2007 by GLS International (Oudenbosch, Netherlands) and the VTC TPE Group ( Am al, Sweden) may help that process along
  • Hard rules for soft-touch overmolding
    , is molded from Fortron 6165A4 PPS and overmolded with a liquid silicone rubber. A conveyor chain link with an antislip device comes from a thermoplastic polyester called Celanex. It's overmolded with Thermolast-K (SEBS styrene elastomer) for MMC, a company of Rexnord-Kette GmbH & Co. KG, Netherlands
  • In the rough
    is important for removing debris trapped in golf shoe cleats. Carolina Engineered Products first used a standard thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) for its cleaner, then flexible vinyl, before turning to the 80 Shore A durometer Flexalloy compound. The switch from vinyl to Flexalloy elastomer from the Vinyl Div
