TPE (Thermoplastic Elastomers)

Identification labeling and descriptions according to ISO 18064 (cursive):

  • TPE-O or TPO = Thermoplastic Elastomer Olefin-based, EPDM/PP
  • TPE-U or TPU = Thermoplastic Elastomer Urethane-based
  • TPE-V or TPV = Vulcanized Thermoplastic Elastomer Olefin-based, EPDM/PP
  • TPE-E or TPC = Thermoplastic Polyelastomer / Thermoplastic Co-Polyester
  • TPE-S or TPS = Styrenic Bloc Copolymers (SBS, SEBS, SEPS, SEEPS and MBS)
  • TPE-A or TPA = Thermoplastic Co-Polyamide

Thermoplastic Polyester Elastomers have the flexibility of rubber, the strength of plastic, and the processing capabilities of thermoplastic.    Heat stabilized and flame-retardant material is available. 

TPE is ideal for parts that need to have excellent reverse bending properties and must be within a certain temperature range.  This material has good cut and tear propagation resistance and can withstand creep strain and abrasion wear.  TPE offers not only strength and stiffness, but also a very high durability, while at the same time having resistance towards hydrocarbons and other various liquids.
