TPE (thermoplastic elastomer) is a material that has the processing properties of thermoplastic and the elasticity of rubber.TPE materials can be plasticized at high temperatures, maintain a fixed shape after cooling, and soften and shape when heated again, so the processing method is similar to that of thermoplastic, and it is easy to be recycled and reused.

We use these TPE pellets to produce TPE foam sheets and customize and process them into a variety of TPE products.

Twelve different colors of TPE granular substances, which are placed in clear glass bottles, each with a round base. From left to right and top to bottom, the colors of these granular substances are red, brown, green, white, blue, light yellow, gray, beige, pink, orange and yellow. The granules look like small particles of TPE plastic or chemical material, and are brightly colored and neatly arranged, giving them an industrial feel as well as visual appeal.

TPE offers shorter vulcanization times and lower energy consumption than traditional vulcanized rubber, and does not require the use of harmful vulcanizing agents, making it more environmentally friendly in the production process.

TPE materials according to the chemical structure can be divided into several categories, such as styrene TPE (SBS, SEBS, etc.), polyolefin TPE (TPO, TPV, etc.), polyurethane TPE (TPU), and so on.

These materials are widely used in a variety of products in daily life, such as automobile parts, electronic products, medical equipment, shoes, toys, etc., mainly because they have good physical and mechanical properties, flexibility, chemical resistance and environmental protection.

TPE (thermoplastic elastomer) materials are known by several aliases, which are often based on their chemical structure, performance characteristics, or specific application areas. TPR, TPU, TPO, TPV, SBS, SEBS. they reflect the diversity of TPE materials and applications in different areas. Since TPE is a generic term for a large group of materials, different types of TPEs have different properties and applications.

Areas of application and products of TPE materials

TPE (thermoplastic elastomer) foam sheets are widely used in a number of fields and products due to their unique properties, such as light weight, flexibility, good resilience and abrasion resistance.

Insoles and shoe materials

3 TPE insoles, which are stacked on top of each other. The top insole is labeled "100" and the bottom two insoles are each labeled "100". These numbers may indicate the thickness of the insoles or a specific logo. Overall, the insoles are dark gray in color and appear to have a non-slip surface.

TPE foam is commonly used to make shoe insoles, which can provide good foot support and shock absorption due to its good elasticity and comfort.

Cushioning and Packaging Materials

Two rectangular blocks of different colors which appear to be some sort of mold or cavity structure. The block on the left is white and has multiple complex black cavity structures inside that appear to be interconnected to form a multilayer structure. The block on the right is black and has an internal cavity structure similar to the one in the white block on the left, but of a different color. Both blocks may be part of some sort of manufacturing process for casting, injection molding, or other molding techniques. Their precision and complexity suggest that they may be used to produce parts or assemblies that require high precision.

In the packaging of electronic products, home appliances and precision instruments, TPE foam sheets are used to provide cushioning and protection to reduce vibration and shock during transportation.

Seals and gaskets

Four different TPE/EVA sealing gaskets or vibration damping rings
The first is a black sponge with multiple rectangular bumps which is fixed to a yellow background.
The second is a number of individual black rectangular sponges which appear to be detached versions of the first.
The third is a white and black strip that appears to be an adhesive sticker or label.
The fourth is an object consisting of a yellow color and multiple black circular objects, possibly a filter or decoration of some sort.

Due to its excellent weatherability and chemical resistance, TPE foam is used as seals for doors, windows, automobiles and other mechanical equipment.

Sporting Goods

8 rolled up TPE yoga mats, they are neatly arranged and the colors are from left to right: blue-green, dark green, blue, purple, pink, violet, brown, light pink and flesh color. Each yoga mat was very brightly colored, and the surface appeared to be a bit textured, probably for non-slip. The yoga mats are rolled up and show a spiral shape at the ends with a slight bulge in the center section.

TPE foam is often used in sporting goods such as exercise mats, yoga mats, helmet interior liners, etc. to provide the necessary flexibility and protection.

Automotive interiors

A variety of styles of car foot mats. They are all black in color and appear to be made of a sturdy material, possibly rubber or TPE or EVA foam. These foot mats are customized to fit different areas of the vehicle's interior, including sections for the front driver's seat, passenger's seat, rear passenger's seat, and the vehicle's center aisle. Each section is shaped and sized to fit the interior of that area to ensure a snug fit, as well as a non-slip feature.

TPE foam can be used in automotive interiors such as door panels, dashboards, floors, and other components to enhance the texture and shock absorption properties of the interior.
