TPV materials are a compound like many plastics. The basis of TPEs are a thermoplastic and an elastomer component. The thermoplastic phase functions as a hard segment, while the elastomer assumes the function of the soft segment. Unlike alternative thermoplastic elastomers (such as TPE-U or TPE-E), the hard and soft segment is not chemically coupled, but is physically blended. The basis for the former is the polypropylene (PP), while ethylene propylene diene-monomer rubber (EPDM) is the basis for the soft segment.
Using TPV offers the following product benefits:
TPV is often used in the automotive industry for
the following applications:
Vehicle air ducts
Vehicle air duct systems transport clean and air-conditioned air to the desired location within the vehicle. The functionality of the seals is decisive in this particular case.
Using TPV for vehicle applications offers the following product benefits:
