Thermoplastic Elastomer Tubing and Profiles
Double Duty Advantage
Thermoplastic elastomers (TPE) are an indispensable tool used by processors, product developers and designers. They combine the dynamic processing properties of thermoplastic plastics with the softness and flexibility of elastomers. Furthermore, while TPEs display the classic characteristics of rubber, they carry the recyclability and processing advantages of plastics. Learn more here: TPE in PBS News
Industrial Uses of TPE Products
While Thermoplastic Elastomer Tubing & Profiles (TPE) bear a striking resemblance to the flexibility of rubber, their superb chemical, electrical and mechanical properties create ideal solutions for many industrial applications. TPEs have a tacky, rubbery feel making them ideal for applications that require a certain level of grip, even while wet.
Medical and Food & Beverage Uses of TPE Products
Inherent low toxicity and compliance to medical and food contact regulations make TPEs a safe choice for tubing and parts in medical devices, pharmaceutical fluid transfer and food processing.

GLOSSARY: Thermoplastic Elastomers are generally low modulus, flexible materials that can be stretched repeatedly to at least twice their original length at room temperature with an ability to return to their approximate original length when stress is released.
