Thermoplastic Vulcanizates (TPV)

TPV is unique product

  • Specialty plastic
  • Closest mimic to synthetic rubber

Sophisticated process technology

  • Consistently blending a high EPDM rubber Content into a very small plastic content
  • At the same time consistently vulcanizing the Rubber to control the morphology
  • Mechanical properties
  • Tear resistance
  • Plastic processability
  • Hardness range
  • Compression set
  • Low temperature Performance
