TPE is a styrenic thermoplastic elastomer, which is a material modified by blending with SEBS as the base material. The use of polyethylene wax lubricant can improve the fluidity and demoldability of elastomeric materials during processing, reduce the melt viscosity, reduce internal friction, and at the same time can reduce the friction between the material and the processing equipment mold.
With the advantages of easy processing, weather resistance, soft touch and easy coloring, TPE is gradually increasing its usage in various occasions. Among the many uses of TPE, automobiles and their parts account for the largest share, and can be used in the production of water flaps, seals, water scrapers and other exterior parts, as well as airbags, mirrors, sound insulation materials, anti-slip mats, adjustable mats and beverage cup holders and other interior parts, and can be used as an alternative material to EPDM and PVC.
TPE has excellent processability, easy coloring, no pre-drying, good mechanical properties and weather resistance, thus gradually occupying the furniture field where ABS is the main material.
Thermoplastic vulcanized rubber, or TPV for short, uses polyethylene wax as a lubricant to improve the flow and release of elastomeric materials during processing, reduce melt viscosity, reduce internal friction, and reduce friction between the material and the tooling of the processing equipment.
TPU name is thermoplastic polyurethane elastomer rubber, mainly divided into polyester type and polyether type. The use of polyethylene wax as a lubricant can improve the flow and release of elastomer materials during processing, reduce melt viscosity, reduce internal friction, and reduce friction between the material and the processing equipment mold.
