Description

These compounds have rubber-like properties, yet flow like thermoplastics when exposed to heat and pressure. TPE-S based products are characterized by low compression set and good resistance to various media. Special types with adhesion properties to various thermoplastics complement the portfolio. The main features are:


  • Chemical Resistance (Ozone and cleaning agents)
  • Excellent weatherability
  • Good tear resistance
  • This material data has been provided by M-Base.

    All metrics apply to room temperature unless otherwise stated. SI units used unless otherwise stated.
    Equivalent standards are similar to one or more standards provided by the supplier. Some equivalent standards may be stricter whereas others may be outside the bounds of the original standard.
