TPR/TPE Compounds

TPR/TPE Compounds

A. P. PLASTIC INDUSTRIES compound are easy processing Thermo Plastic Elastomer (TPE) compound specially formulated for manufacturing of shoe soles and other footwear applications and also in telecom industry. This compound is designed from combination of polyblends of modified thermoplastic homopolymer Polyvinyl chloride and a set of chemically reacted special purpose copolymers to bring a well balanced set of inherent properties, very much required for the best performance of shoe soles for longer time. The thermoplastic rubber compound, is a part of Styrene Elastomer family that displays rubber like properties having styrenic based segment to achieve excellent strength. Besides conventional vulcanized rubber, it delivers superior properties to make replacement application of rubber and soft plastic in the sense of processing and end uses. Our compounding ability makes TPR as a homogeneous composition to achieve excellent quality and processability.

A. P. Plastic Industries TPR is based on styrenic as hard segment & soft phase consists of rubbery butadiene center and crystalline styrene at ends. It can combine well with many other elastomers, extenders, modifiers and other resins. All these combinations can be controlled to vary properties such as tack stiffness, softening temperatures and cohesive strengths according to the needs of specific and general usage. It is being widely accepted due to its various range in cost effective and value engineered concepts.

Properties

  1. Light in weight.
  2. Having good tear strength.
  3. Excellent abrasion resistant and dimension stability.
  4. Flexible at low temperature.
  5. Performs like vulcanized rubber.
  6. Reusable and recyclable.
  7. It is non migratory.
  8. Excellent electrical properties and weather resistant.
