Olefinic Based Thermoplastic Elastomer - Ol TPE 93A

Polymer Type

Thermoplastic

Advantages

Highest hardness, abrasion resistance, tensile strength and flexural modulus of the olefinic TPE's ( 65A - 93A ). Easier to machine than softer grades.

Disadvantages

Lower resilience, low temperature properties and elongation at break than other olefinic TPEs ( 65A - 93A ).
