TPE is an elastomer, or rubber-like material, that is thermoplastic, meaning it can be molded and reformed with heat. It is often used in place of traditional rubbers and plastics because it is more flexible, durable, and environmentally friendly. This material exhibits excellent resistance to flexural fatigue. It has high impact strength, excellent chemical resistance, good resistance to tear and abrasion. In addition, it possesses good electrical properties. It is used in grips and handles, seals, plugs, power and hand tool components, wires and cables.
