Thermoplastic elastomer


Thermoplastic elastomers are soft materials that have similar properties to rubber.

TPE can be formed and welded by applying heat.

Handles and household utensils as well as parts of consumer electronics are made of TPE and have a soft-touch surface.

In the automotive industry, TPE is used for insert mats, for the coating of control elements, trim parts, seals, spoiler lips and mud flaps.

TPEs have a useful temperature of -50 to 120 °C and have good resistance to chemicals, oils and alkalis.

TPE is soft like rubber and has a soft-touch feel.

TPE can be deformed and welded by applying heat.

Processing TPE

TPE is a hydrophilic material. We recommend tempering the welding rod before processing for this reason.

You can use welding equipment such as a hot air tool or use an extruder.

TPE can be cut and glued.
