The expanding universe of Thermoplastic Elastomers (TPEs) includes several classes of materials whose common character is close replication of the elastic properties of natural rubbers combined with the easy processability of thermoplastics. TPE families are based on styrenics, polyolefins, polyesters, polyurethanes, thermoplastic vulcanizates (TPVs) and other materials. Polyurethane Elastomers can be processed on extrusion as well as injection, blow and compression molding equipment’s. The market regarding this is seeing a huge boom lately and is expected to grow well in the coming years.
