TPE parts

Thermoplastic injection moulding market

 

Borflex is also present in the thermoplastic injection moulding market.

TPE are materials which have the same characteristics as elastomers but they are associated with plastic elements.

The cycle times are shorter and waste recycling easier.

Applications:

  • Replacing of traditional rubber in tough environmental conditions and mass production series. Parts of various shapes and colours can then be produced.
  • Thermoplastics are used in cases where the rubber characteristics do not meet the customer’s technical requirements.
  • Cost reduction in case of choice of TPE as a replacement for rubber (because of its best rigidity and flexibility properties)
