The Characteristics and Advantages of TPE Material

- Nov 29, 2019-

TPE is a high elasticity of rubber, high strength, high elasticres ilience, but also has the characteristic of injection molding processing, environmental non-toxic safety, hardness is wide and has excellent color, texture soft, weather resistance, fatigue resistance and temperature tolerance, the processing performance is superior, no cure, can be recycled to reduce costs, either the secondary injection molding, and PP, PE, PC, PS, ABS, such as matrix materials coated adhesive, also can separate molding.


The general characteristics and physical parameters of tpe materials are as follows:

Appearance: transparent or natural grain;The proportion of 0.85 ~ 1.20;Hardness range 0~100 degrees (shao's hardness a);Material shrinkage rate 1.5~2%.

TPE( thermoplastic elastomer) is the top environmental protection materials, in accordance with ROHS,REACH,PAHS,np environmental protection instructions.


Advantages: 

1. Easy to recycle, reduce the cost. The wastes generated in the production process and the waste products that eventually appear can be returned directly for reuse; Used TPE products can be simply recycled and recycled to reduce environmental pollution and expand the source of renewable resources.

2. Energy saving: most thermoplastic elastomers do not need to be cured or the curing time is very short, which can effectively save energy.

3. The use of general thermoplastic molding machine processing, do not need special processing equipment.

4. Production efficiency has been greatly improved. Vulcanization can be directly used with rubber injection molding machine, the time from the original 20min or so, shortened to less than 1min; Because the curing time required is very short, it can be cured directly by extruder, and the production efficiency is greatly improved.
