Materials of this polymer class have similar properties to elastomers – this means that they are flexible at room temperature but still remain dimensionally stable. When heated, they can be plastically deformed and processed like thermoplastics. Since they are easy to process, they can be used to replace cross-linked elastomers and soft PVC.
Fields of application: TPEs can for example be used to make damping elements, bumpers, bellows, soles, handles and hoses.
