Da/Pro Northeast molds TPE elastomer products and overmolded products. TPE elastomers add soft-touch grips, high tech looks, multiple color capability, scents, surface textures and more to a variety of components. TPE elastomer molding is being used in consumer products, industrial products, medical device components, electrical products and in almost every other industry.
Consumer products use TPE elastomers in everything ranging from toothbrushes to shampoo bottles incorporating special effect colors and scent enhanced elements. Sporting goods manufacturers use TPE elastomers to reduce the coefficient of friction with wet surfaces and increase comfort.
Industrial, electronics, and medical OEMs are using TPE to combine housing and sealing components into one, increasing efficiency and reducing manufacturing costs. Vibration dampers and valve/pump combination components also utilize TPE elastomers.
TPE elastomer molding is replacing many rubber/metal and rubber/plastic combinations as a more cost effective solutions. TPE elastomer products have evolved; and TPE materials are made with better elasticity, surface COF, more colors, higher tear strength, more bondability to other substrates and higher heat performance. Many of these properties have improved, but there are still properties that only rubber can deliver. Which material is right for your application?
