TPEs Offer the
Best of Both Worlds

Thermoplastic elastomers (TPEs) combine the elastomeric properties of thermoset rubber with the design freedom, processing ease and recyclability of thermoplastic resins. These versatile materials are increasingly popular thanks to their appealing soft feel, colorability, resilience, flexibility and strength. TPEs can be co-injection molded or overmolded onto rigid plastic substrates without the need for adhesives, supporting part consolidation and avoiding the costs of secondary operations.

Dow Corning’s broad TPE portfolio includes Multiflex® styrene-ethylene-butylene-styrene (SEBS)-based TPE compounds, silicone enhanced TPEs called SiE and TPSiV® materials, which add the desirable properties of silicone to the performance benefits of any TPE.

Solving Your Application Challenges

In demanding applications such as automotive interior, exterior and safety system applications, Multiflex TPE compounds provide high performance such as excellent resistance to chemicals, temperature extremes and fatigue. Expanded design options and ease of processing vs. thermoset rubber offer OEMs and tiers new ways to add value while controlling costs.

Like other TPEs, our TPSiV materials can be manufactured using standard thermoplastic processes that enable high productivity and lower costs. Applications such as consumer electronics, particularly wearable electronics such as fitness bands, are a key application area for TPSiV materials, due to their outstanding aesthetics, comfort, skin contact safety and high performance.
