With our partner Teknor Apex, we can offer excellent possibilities in the area of TPV.
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:

  • Flexibility, also in the low-temperature range
  • Excellent UV stability
  • Listed by many OEM’s such as Ford, VW, Audi, etc.  
  • Very good acid and alkali resistance 

TPV is often used in the automotive industry for the following applications:

  • Claddings
  • Air ducts
  • Footwell mats
  • Rubber gaiters
  • Seals
  • etc.


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:

  • Cost savings
  • Weight reductions
  • Improved longevity
  • Improved sealing function
  • Excellent processability
  • Temperature stability up to 125°C
  • Resistant to cleaning agents and oil
