How can APS Elastomers help select the best Thermoplastic Elastomer (TPE) for your project?
We work closely with manufacturers, design and specification engineers, and end-users to fine tune Zythane®, Viprene® and Maxelast® products to fit new application requirements. When selecting Zythane®, Viprene® and Maxelast® you receive more than proven consistent products – you also receive technical support and responsive customer service.
How soon can orders be shipped?
In most cases, orders can be shipped the same day we receive your purchase order.
Zythane® thermoplastic polyurethane elatomers (TPU) exhibit many desirable properties including extreme abrasion resistance and toughness, excellent adhesion and transparency, flexibility over a wide temperature range (-40° F to + 200° F) and resistance to degradation from water, oils, greases, fungus and other chemicals.
Viprene® thermoplastic vulcanizate (TPV) exhibit many properties similar to rubber such as flexibility over a wide temperature range (-40° F to + 200° F) and resistance to degradation from water, oils and greases. It can also be processed using conventional injection molding and extrusion equipment.
Maxelast® combines the great properties of rubber (elasticity, cold weather resistance and soft touch) with the easy processibility of plastics. TPE products can be designed and fabricated faster, easier and more economically. TPE is finding more applications and enabling better and more elegant designs.
