What are the superiority of thermoplastic elastomer TPE compare with soft PVC
From the scope of use, TPE can be used for toys, sports equipment, shoe materials, stationery, hardware, power tools, communications, electronic products, food and beverage packaging, household appliances, kitchen supplies, medical equipment, automobiles, construction engineering, wires and cables.
PVC extruder can be squeezed into hoses, cables, wires, etc. Injection molding machine with a variety of molds, can be made of plastic sandals, soles, slippers, toys, auto parts. Suitable for making thin plate, wire and cable insulation layer, seal
As a result of PVC in the manufacturing process add plasticizer, anti-aging agent and other toxic auxiliary materials, so its products generally do not store food and drugs, not used in medical and food
TPE thermoplastic elastomer has good feel, good comfort, good softness, waterproof, anti-slip, good elasticity, touch soft, beautiful appearance, better grip, shock resistance and shockproof, soft texture, beautiful appearance, comfortable to feel; TPE has good resilience and strong anti-wetting property.
Soft PVC feels stiff and smooth, soft, elastic, leather hardness changes with the environment obvious light, thermal stability is poor, its performance rapidly decline over 100℃ or under the light.
PVC has strict waste disposal procedures and is banned in many European countries
Waste of TPE is easy to recycle and can be recycled because it contains no heavy metals and is recommended by international environmental groups.
