TPV replacement line

StarPrene is a line of TPEs (thermoplastic elastomers) that mold and perform better than TPVs (thermoplastic vulcanizates – EPDM rubber and polypropylene).

The advantages of StarPrene TPEs over TPVs include similar flow characteristics with the same rheology; high-flow versions available; better tensile strength and elongation; good colorability; and no need to dry the material before processing.

The TPEs are resistant to many acids, bases, aqueous solutions, and various processing options, and are available in numerous stock grades.
