KEP TPVs are an excellent choice for applications that require performance while remaining economical. For over a decade leaders in the food and beverage industry have partnered with Kent to fill this need. Our TPVs provide durability, flexibility, and excellent long-term resistance to heat, hot fluids, oils, and dairy products. State of the art in-line laser gauges monitor precise and strict dimensional tolerances.
TPE Overmolding, Bonding and Substrate Considerations
Santoprene is part of the thermoplastic elastomer grouping of polymers but shares more characteristics with vulcanized rubber, or thermoplastic vulcanizates. Santoprene, sometimes called Santoprene TPV short for Thermoplastic Vulcanizates is a dynamically vulcanized polymer alloy composed of cured EPDM ethylene propylene diene monomer rubber. Because of its ease to work with, dependability and excellent performance, Santoprene has become a staple in thermoplastic manufacturing across multiple sectors, including automotive, household appliances, electrical, construction and healthcare. The first efforts to invent thermoplastics and elastomers that could imitate the feel of, and properties found in crosslinked rubbers was in There was a need for simpler and faster TPE processing, but also the ability to recycle scrap.
Santoprene sheet is a type of thermoplastic material with high-performance capabilities and Santoprene sheet material is a cross-linked chain of EPDM rubber and polypropylene. Santoprene rubber is generally known for its flexibility, durability and low compression set. However, in order to truly understand the composition of this material and all its benefits, it is important to comprehend what thermoplastic means and how it is different from other kinds rubber. Let us see what makes Santoprene rubber special.
