Thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) compounds combine the performance properties of thermoset rubber with the processing ease of plastic. TPEs provide flexibility, low compression set, and processing ease. TPEs provide good fluid resistance and can be processed using injection molding, extrusion, blow molding, or other melt processing techniques.

TPVs (thermoplastic vulcanizate) offer the additional benefits of being a non-hygroscopic, easy-to-color, low impurity compound. Santoprene™ lead free TPV grades for both wet and dry electrical applications are formulated to be compliant with European standards RoHS, WEEE, and ELV as well as U.S. standards EPCRA and California Prop. 65.

Santoprene™ is used by various industries such as automotive, construction, medical, food and beverage, electrical, appliance and consumer electronic markets.
