Santoprene TPV Parts

Santoprene® thermoplastic(TPVs) is a vulcanized ethylene propylene diene monomer (EPDM) rubber in a thermoplastic matrix of polypropylene (PP). It posses the same levels of flexibility and durability that are commonly found with natural rubber compounds and because of the longer life in both extreme hot and cold temperatures, Santoprene® is commonly used in place of PVC since it is proven to be a dependable polymer for flexible engineered parts that require long-term performance.

Custom Santoprene TPV Parts

Santoprene® is also seen when developing custom rubber molded parts since it allows simplified, more flexible part design, and easier manufacturing when compared to EPDM rubber when process on equipment and applications in various market segments. The main advantage of this TPV over EPDM rubber for Santoprene TPV parts is lower weight for parts with a similar design which can be as high as 30%

Combining the characteristics of vulcanized rubber with the simplified processing of thermoplastics, Santoprene® offer sealing solutions that are both durable and attractive for a variety of industries, including:

  • Automotive
  • Electronics
