Thermoplastic vulcanizate (TPV) compounds

Thermoplastic vulcanizate (TPV) compounds, which consist of a polyolefin phase (PP) with a dynamically cured EPDM phase, are closely dispersed in the PP matrix which gives rubber-like properties and has the advantage of thermoplastic processing methods.

TPV is ideal for a variety of applications including automotive (exterior and interior parts), pipe seals, cables, wiring in the automotive and industrial markets, building materials, sporting goods, consumer goods, and other applications where a heat resistance of up to 120 is required.

hardness values range typically from 45 Shore A to 45 Shore D.

General Advantages of Thermoplastic vulcanizate (TPV) compounds:

  • High-temperature resistance
  • Wide range of hardnesses
  • Resistance to chemicals and weathering
  • Low compression set
  • Flex fatigue resistance
  • Lightweight
  • Good colorability

Using TPV for automotive applications:

The TPV material can be used in numerous automotive exterior parts such as weather seals, mudguards,  glass run channels, etc.

The TPV material can be used in numerous automotive interior parts such as airbag covers, shift grips, dashboard coverings, etc.

Some advantages of using TPV for automotive applications:

  • Excellent long-term performance: Making it a great choice for meeting vehicle durability standards
  • Lightweight: This material is not only very light but it also gives engineers the ability to mold thinner profiles, effectively reducing weight even more
  • Design Flexibility
  • Recyclability: Resulting in reduced waste and cost-savings
  • Easy processing: Resulting in faster production rates, also reducing the price in many cases
