Press release date: June 24, 2014

VipreneŽ thermoplastic vulcanizate (TPV) exhibit many properties similar to rubber such as flexibility over a wide temperature range and resistance to degradation from water, oils and greases.  It can also be processed using conventional injection molding and extrusion equipment.

Available in Shore hardness range of 45A-50D, VipreneŽ can be optimized with specific softness needed in industrial, construction and appliance applications. Lower processing costs as well as adhesion to a broad range of substrates make it an ideal substitute of more costly material needed in soft touch parts such as overmolded grips for power tools, appliance, and utensil handles.

In addition to its rubber-like properties, VipreneŽ TPVs are fatigue resistant, dimensionally stable and offer very low compression set, heat aging stability, low temperature flexibility and excellent U.V. and ozone stability.

APS Elastomers is committed to providing in-depth and high level customer and technical service, problem-solving, product development and support to designers, OEMs and processors; building relationships based on knowledge, trust and experience.  APS Elastomers also provides beside-the-press consulting, full laboratory services, and expedited shipment.
