Thermoplastic Elastomers are materials with both rubber and plastic properties.
Nowadays TPE’s are available in a wide range of hardnesses and with an extensive range of different properties. In several applications TPE products can well be used instead of rubber materials.
Mechanical properties and chemical resistances match those of rubber in many cases. TPE materials can also be very well combined, e.g. combinations of hard and weak, rigid and flexible, 2 different colours.
Dutch Rubber Seals supplies both small and large series, in TPE materials with hardnesses between 50 and 90 degrees Shore A.
