TPO is a new generation elastomer which exhibits rubber like properties and is easily processed on
conventional thermoplastic equipment. The flexural modulus is normally in the 40,000 to 300,000 psi
range. The key characteristic of this material is its low temperature, toughness, and value cost
TPV is a vulacanizable elastomeric composition. The key characteristics of this material are the superior
heat and oil resistance. This material is especially useful for gaskets, seals, o-rings, and diaphragms. The
material can be processed on conventional extrusion, molding, and compression equipment.
TPE is a SBS, SEB, and SEPS based elastomer compound. The key characteristics are that it has a low
flexural modulus, good color ability, good low temperature toughness, and very good cost value
performance. Typical markets include flexible containers and toys. It can be processed with conventional
PC/ABS Blend has good impact resistance associated with polycarbonate along with the dimensional and
color stability of ABS.
PC/SMA Blend has the good impact strength of polycarbonate and the good chemical resistance of
PC/SMA. This material also is characterized by high heat deflection temperatures, good thermal
stability, good electrical properties, and dynamic fatigue strength.
PC/Nylon Blend has good impact properties and good all around toughness. The nylon phase enhances
the material chemical resistance.
