TPE-Thermoplastic Elastomers

Plastral can assist with the supply and distribution of Thermoplastic Elastomers (TPE) for your product development, construction or packaging need.  We work with suppliers of all types of Thermoplastic elastomers including;

  • Styrenic block copolymers, TPS (TPE-s)
  • Thermoplastic polyolefinelastomers, TPO (TPE-o)
  • Thermoplastic Vulcanizates, TPV (TPE-v or TPV)
  • Thermoplastic polyurethanes, TPU (TPU)
  • Thermoplastic copolyester, TPC (TPE-E)
  • Thermoplastic polyamides, TPA (TPE-A)
  • Not classified thermoplastic elastomers, TPZ

Thermoplastic elastomers (TPE) or thermoplastic rubbers, as they are sometimes referred to, are a mix of polymers (often plastic and rubber polymers) or what is called a copolymer.  They are used in manufacturing for a variety of products and materials where materials with both thermoplastic and elastometic properties are required.  

TPEs are used in a variety of applications in the automotive, medical, construction, electrical, appliance, packaging and industrial markets – and new uses for TPEs are being developed all the time.

Plastral works across all industries to supply quality, reliable, solutions focussed raw materials.   We work closely with our specialist network of suppliers from around the globe to source the best solutions to solve your manufacturing need.
