TPEThermoplastic Elastomer

According to IUOAC, TPEs are defined as the elastomers with the structure of thermo-reversible network. Most elastomers are thermosetting resins, but TPEs are thermoplastic so that they fit injection and extrusion molding. TPE products can be molded in a general plastic processing method. In other words, TPEs feature the combination of rubber elasticity and plastic molding, recycling, and short manufacturing time, and therefore they draw a lot of attention as an eco-friendly material.

Storage and Handling

  • TPE products of Young Polymer Co., Ltd. are made and supplied in a pellet form so that it is easy to store and handle them.
  • TPE products of Young Polymer Co., Ltd. can absorb a considerable amount of surrounding moisture. If exposed to moisture, they have the rough surface and lowered physical properties. Therefore, they need to be dried enough for 3-4 hours at 80~90˚C before being processed.
  • TPE products of Young Polymer Co., Ltd. need to be processed in reference to MSDS.
