TPE the best alternative to rubber and plastic

Elastic, pliable and flexible – these qualities are typical for rubber, a universally recognized material that takes many forms in our daily lives. It grows increasingly difficult, to determine the right material for a given product, water hoses, sealing rings, window seals or even basic door stops all feel like rubber, but they are often made from thermoplastic elastomers (TPE). The similarity to rubber is striking.

Rubber is a product made from natural or synthetic polymers. These polymers are a viscoplastic material which, when combined with crosslinking chemicals such as sulphur or peroxide and heated, can become elastic rubber. During this process of “vulcanisation”, the threadlike molecules of the polymer become interlinked through the creation of chemical bonds. It is this interlinking which gives the product its elasticity. The vulcanisation process can only be reversed by destroying the substance with heat.

Thermoplastic elastomers (TPE) behave much differently. As the name implies, these substances become plastic when heated (Greek: thermos=heat), but become elastic again once they have cooled. Unlike the chemical interlinking within rubber, here the interlinking is physical. In terms of their structure and behaviour, TPE fall between plastics and elastomers. They are as workable as plastics while retaining the essential characteristics of rubber. Furthermore, TPEs are environmentally friendly. Unlike rubber, they can be recycled and reused.

REACH and PAK

TPEs are very pure materials which are compounded in a controlled environment. This is why it’s always possible to say exactly which constituents and plasticisers have been used. This means that following the increasingly strict rules of the REACH sector is not a problem. Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHS) can also be excluded with certainty.

Colour and odour

The visual and aromatic characteristics of TPE can also be easily controlled. Unlike rubber, TPE can be coloured without issue (even in small batches), which makes TPE perfect for technical applications as well as for design and visual elements.
