There are numerous soft thermoplastics on the market and their application possibilities seem endless.

On our website, we describe the six main basic types of thermoplastic elastomers plus soft PVC that we use.

TPS - Styrene block copolymer

TPS (styrene block copolymer) is the most commonly used thermoplastic elastomer. When people talk about TPE, they usually mean a styrene block copolymer based on SBS or SEBS. TPS is a versatile material produced in a wide range of grades and grades.

TPV - Thermoplastic Polyolefine Vulcanisaat

TPV (Thermoplastic Polyolefin Vulcanisation) is a blend of a polyolefin-based plastic (usually PP) and an elastomer such as EPDM. Unlike TPO, the elastomer in TPV is cross-linked or vulcanised.

TPU - Thermoplastic Polyurethane

TPU (Thermoplastic Polyurethane) is a thermoplastic elastomer based on polyurethane.

When you need a material that is highly resistant to wear and oils, TPU is a good choice.

TPO - Thermoplastic Polyolefins

TPO (Thermoplastic Polyolefins) is a blend of a polyolefin based plastic (usually PP) and an elastomer such as EPDM. Unlike TPV, TPO is not or only partially cross-linked.

TPA - Thermoplastic Polyether Polyamides

TPA (Thermoplastic Polyether Polyamide) is a special block polymer based on polyamide.

A characteristic of TPA is that it contains no plasticisers and the material remains flexible at low temperatures.

TPC - Thermoplastic Polyester Elastomer

TPC (Thermoplastic Polyester Elastomer) is a block copolymer on a copolyester base.

If you are looking for a very versatile material that is tough, flexible and also resistant to high temperatures, a TPC may be your solution.

Soft PVC

Soft PVC (polyvinyl chloride) is a very traditional material that dates back to the 1930s. Soft PVC has exceptional properties and a perfect price/performance ratio.
