What are thermoplastic elastomers? Put simply, TPEs are added value for your final product. On the one hand, they are extremely elastic, and on the other, they are easy to process. This unique combination allows for wide-ranging freedom – from product development all the way to product design.
In scientific terms, thermoplastic elastomers are created through physical cross-linking. In the presence of heat, they transform into plastic and become malleable. Once cooled their elastic properties become evident once again. Since they can be melted down several times, TPEs can be used in repeated molding processes and recycled.
