TPE

 

Thermoplastic elastomers (TPE), sometimes referred to as thermoplastic rubbers, are a class of copolymer i.e. a physical mix of polymers (usually a plastic and a rubber). TPEs have outstanding flexibility and mechanical strength up to their continuous use temperature of 150°C, whilst a flexible choice of processing options (tube extrusion and pressure die coating) makes TPE a popular the choice for wire and cable applications.  It has high temperature resistance: 3000 hrs at 160 °C for TPE U (peak temp up to 200°C) yet also exhibits excellent low temperature ductility and impact strength. Good copper stability (both TPE-E and U).

E and P grades provide extra fatigue resistance, good chemical and abrasion resistance and are popular for robotics and machine applications.

Temperature Rating 140° C / 284° F
