Romulus, MI, United States, 2014/07/02 - Demand for high performance, lightweight materials combined with lower processing costs as well as adhesion to a broad range of substrates make thermoplastic vulcanizate (TPV) an ideal substitute of more costly material needed in a variety of applications.
“Increasing our compounding capacity allows us to meet growing demand and continue our commitment to the elastomer market in North America”, says Stephane Morin, owner of APS Elastomers.
APS Elastomers’ Viprene® TPVs are compounded using a polyolefin phase with a cross-linked EPDM phase; giving products rubber-like performance in demanding industrial, automotive, and construction applications.
Available in natural or black pellets with a Shore hardness range of 35A-50D, Viprene® TPVs exhibit many properties similar to rubber; flexibility over a wide temperature range and resistance to degradation from water, oil, and grease. Additionally, Viprene® TPVs offer a better compression set, are fatigue resistant, dimensionally stable and offer heat aging stability, low temperature flexibility and excellent U.V. and ozone stability.
APS Elastomers (apstpe.com) 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.
