Thermoplastic Elastomers (TPE)

Thermoplastic Elastomers, or TPEs, are the premier choice of soft, flexible materials due to their robust properties, cost effectiveness, and design flexibility. As a global leader in compounding, Teknor Apex offers the broadest portfolio of TPE technologies in the industry, including styrenic block copolymer (SBC) compounds, polyolefin blends (TPE-O or TPO), thermoplastic vulcanizates (TPE-Vs or TPVs), polyurethane compounds (TPE-U or TPU), and other specialty blends. 

In a more focused approach to meeting the market's needs, our TPE product lines are aligned with the industries they serve. Standard grades meet the necessary regulations and specifications for that industry, pre-qualifying the compound for an application, and accelerating our customers' speed to market with new products.

Medical device manufacturers increasingly turn to thermoplastic elastomers (TPEs) for applications that require flexibility or rubber-like elasticity, and they turn to Teknor Apex to deliver high quality, regulatory-compliant TPEs with a proven track record.

From the lid on your food saver to the protective cover on your smartphone, Monprene is the TPE brand that consumers trust most.

Sarlink TPVs excel in critical applications that require superior elasticity and long-term performance.

When designing cables and other electrical products for low temperatures or harsh environments, Elexar is the premier material solution.
