Thermoplastic Elastomers

Thermoplastic elastomers (TPE), sometimes referred to as thermoplastic rubbers, are a class of copolymers or a physical mix of polymers (usually a plastic and a rubber) which consist of materials with both thermoplastic and elastomeric properties. This material combines the best characteristics of thermoset rubber with the processing advantages of thermoplastics to offer a fantastic flexible, efficient and recyclable material.
