APS Elastomers' high performance VipreneŽ TPV (thermoplastic vulcanizates) are stable and can be processed in a wide temperature range without showing signs of degradation. "Our VipreneŽ TPV is formulated to reduce processing cost by obtaining lower viscosity; allowing shorter fill time, longer flow paths, and lower injection pressure," says Stephane Morin, owner of APS Elastomers.
Available in Shore Hardness of 35A to 50D, VipreneŽ TPVs are compounded with a polyolefin phase and a cross-linked EPDMK phase which gives products rubber-like performance. They can be optimized with specific softness needed in a variety of parts. Processing at recommended temperatures accelerates and improves bonding to certain thermoplastics and other TPVs in applications such as gaskets, seals, electrical insulation, tool grips, construction and industrial parts.
APS Elastomers remains the only independent TPU, TPE, TPV, and other elastomer resource to offer in-depth and high level customer service, sales, technical service, problem-solving, marketing insight, product development and other support to designers, marketers and processors. APS Elastomers also provides expedited shipment and full laboratory services.
