After being released from detention, refugees on TPVs
continue to be treated as "second-class citizens" in terms of access to settlement services.
"As with conventional TPVs
, the 'soft segment' of Uniprene XL compounds takes the form of spherical, micro-sized [0.5 to 2.0 [micro]m] domains of cross-linked rubber," says Dr.
The batch mixing approach provides a unique capability in examining different phenomena such as dynamic vulcanization in TPVs
Excluding China, global TPE sales will remain heavily concentrated in the developed markets of the U.S., Western Europe, and Japan, particularly for higher performance materials such as TPVs
and copolyester elastomers (COPEs), according to the study.
The Sarlink 8100 series TPVs
adhere well to, and can be co-extruded with, other TPVs
, TPOs and PP, according to the manufacturer.
Both are available in a wide range of hardness levels and exhibit higher flow than comparable TPV
grades, enabling them to be molded into more intricate geometries and to improve cycles through shorter packing and cooling times.
"Santoprene 121-XXM200 TPV
grades are part of our ongoing innovation to develop new TPVs
that meet automotive industry requirements for lower cost and lighter weight engineered applications, while improving functional and aesthetic performance," said Michael Russo, globe brand manager, Santoprene TPV
, ExxonMobil Chemical.
(7) was the first to study about the technical importance of the TPVs
in terms of rheological characteristics using a capillary rheometer.
Seals remain cleaner because dirt adheres less readily to NexPrene 1500A LCOF Series TPVs
than to traditional materials, according to Thermoplastic Rubber Systems.
A softer grade has been added to the Zeotherm line of engineering TPVs
from Zeon Chemicals LP, Louisville, Ky.
Certified to meet ANSI/NSF Standard Class 61 for potable water contact materials/fluid delivery systems, the fully colorable NexPrene 1300 Series of TPVs
(thermoplastic vulcanizates) is suitable for use worldwide in products such as seals, diaphragms, tubes, gaskets, O-rings, flanges, piping, and other components where the materials are used in potable water applications or fluid-delivery systems.
Steering boot manufacturers are said to be using Santoprene TPVs
because, compared to EPDM rubber or chloroprene rubber, they can reduce weight, improve part performance and provide effective protection against the weather, oil, road salt, debris and other harsh environmental elements.
