As TPV manufacturing giants are putting significant efforts to tap latent opportunities in the high growth markets, prospects remain promising for thermoplastic vulcanizate
Made from a soft, TPV (Thermoplastic Vulcanizate
) material, these channel clips are flexible, allowing for easy attachment to a dispensing tube.
The company said the project, expected to be completed in late 2017, will result in a 25 percent increase in its global capacity to manufacture Santoprene thermoplastic vulcanizate
(TPV), high-performance elastomers used for automotive, industrial and consumer applications.
* And for components requiring an excellent range of chemical resistance, proper selection among TPU, thermoplastic vulcanizate
(TPV), and COPE TPEs will fill this requirement.
In one case, a manufacturer of a polypropylene (PP) hose for medical applications, including laser surgery, respiratory care and sleep apnea equipment, selected a thermoplastic vulcanizate
(TPV), a type of TPE with a vulcanized dispersed phase, to ovennold a cuff on the end of its hoses, providing a quality seal.
The winning material is SUNVIEO, which is a high-performance thermoplastic vulcanizate
with an exceptionally high melt flow rate.
Jyco is a thermoplastic vulcanizate
(TPV) sealing specialist with a headcount of about 800 workers.
A big application is welding gaskets made of thermoplastic vulcanizate
, like Santoprene, or flexible PVC, which are used for mirrors, as well as bus, train and military vehicle window systems.
In the search for novel chemistries and processes, cross-linking techniques in thermoplastic vulcanizate
elastomers have emerged to address these demands.
They found it in Santoprene, a thermoplastic vulcanizate
(TPV) typically used in automobile air ducts.
JP Specialties of Lake Elsinore, Calif., specifies Sarlink thermoplastic vulcanizate
for its line of Earthshield waterstops, which are designed for use in concrete containment walls.
