General info

Thermoplastic elastomer Forprene® TPV (TPE-V) is a two-phase material: a soft elastomeric part that provides rubber-like properties and a hard part that ensures that material is repeatedly processable by standard injection or extrusion molding.

Forprene® TPV offers many benefits such as:

  • High elastic recovery within a wide temperature range
  • Excellent resistance to UV aging, ozone and weathering
  • Excellent resistance to several chemicals, e.g. bases, acids, alcohols, detergents, solvents
  • High fatigue resistance
  • High thermal and electric insulation values
  • Good abrasion resistance
  • Excellent colorability for some grades
  • Good processability

TPV Forprene® offers a wide range of grades:

  • Hardness range from 20 Shore A to 60 Shore D
  • With low temperature limit down to -40°C
  • With max continuous temperature up to 130°C
  • High transparency
  • UV stabilized
  • Heat stabilized
  • Flame retardant
  • Low emissions
