Thermoplastic Elastomer (TPE/TPR) compounds is an elastomeric material that is softer and more elastic than plastic particles. TPE/TPR is a general name of the compounds material that can be divided into 6 major categories according to its different chemical composition and combination.

TPE plastic pellets makes no difference with ordinary plastic pellets. They can be injected, extruded, calendered, foamed and thermoformed into various finished products. They have greatly replaced the plastic products that are currently used in a large amount. Foamed TPE can be naturally decomposed under normal conditions, and the burden on the environment is small. Some types of TPE have the advantages of not generating toxic gases after combustion and no odor during processing. In the time when the world is about to ban on PVC (polyvinyl chloride) and the gradual elimination of toxic plastic materials such as PET bottles and plastic bags, such TPE materials can be applied to many necessities in daily life, and have environmental protection appeals. The thermoplastic elastomer TPE/TPR compounds is a series of rubber-like materials that combine rubber elastic properties with plastic processing conditions and recyclable properties.

Unlike the chemically crosslinked type of thermosetting rubber, the thermoplastic elastomer TPE compounds is a purely physically crosslinked type of product, meaning that the thermoplastic elastomer TPE is like a plastic, which can be shaped by heating, which enables the thermoplastic elastomer TPE compounds to be recycled repeatedly of the waste material generated by the whole processing; the recycled products can be remanufactured thru simple processing procedures after using, which can effectively reduce environmental pollution and greatly expand renewable resources.

We, Zhili TPE(S) is capable of developing or simulating TPE(S) / TPR thermoplastic rubber compounds materials of the same properties, and we will replace the twin-screw new water granulation production equipment in the factory within a certain period of time to secure the quality stability of our TPE (S) / TPR compounds products.

In terms of properties, Zhili TPE(S) has rubber properties and plastic processing properties. It is a material with high resilience, environmental protection, non-toxicity and safety. Vulcanization is not required during processing, and has excellent coloring property and weather resistance. It is easy to process, recyclable and cost reduction. It is generally bonded/coated with PP, PE, PC, PS, ABS, PA (Nylon) and other materials, and can also be formed / molded itself.

Zhili TPE(S) has elasticity of rubber, excellent physical properties, cold resistance and electrical insulation, and also can be molded by general plastic machinery and tool molds. Suitable for injection, extrusion, blown film and extrusion processing. Compared with conventional rubber, no need to do the vulcanization process, which has the advantages of easy processing, short molding cycle, high production efficiency, waste recycling, material saving, stable product quality as well as light specific gravity.
