Forprene thermoplastic vulcanizate (TPV) elastomers consist of a polyolefin phase with a crosslinked ethylenepropylene-diene monomer (EPDM) robber phase dispersed throughout, providing rubber-like properties (softness, elastic memory and flexibility), but with the advantage of melt-processability inherent to a thermoplastic.
Forprene TPV compounds consist of a polyolefin phase with a crosslinked ethylene-propylene-diene monomer (EPDM) rubber phase dispersed throughout, providing rubber-like properties--softness, elastic memory, and flexibility--but with the advantage of melt-processability inherent to a thermoplastic, says M.
The benefits of the Tufel III elastomer include high resilience and elastic memory, and low hysteresis for flow accuracy and improved pump life.
