TPE raw materials will further replace traditional elastomers and thermoplastics
As a rapidly growing and highly value-added manufacturing sector, the automotive industry has attracted a lot of engineering plastics modification research to join this thriving “treasury”, from instrument interiors to conductive material power systems, from PCs and PAs. Go to the TPE raw material.
With the global research and development of thermoplastic elastomers, TPE demand will achieve an annual growth of about 5.5%, reaching 5.8 million tons by 2017, which is the basis of TPE's 20 billion market. As the world's leading consumer of TPE, China will continue to maintain annual consumption growth of more than 8% for a long time to come.
TPE raw material is a non-toxic, non-polluting and environmentally friendly material. It not only does not contain toxic substances, but also produces harmful substances such as formaldehyde from toxic substances in the production process from the injection molding machine to the final release molding. TPE engineering plastics are easy to process, and the requirements for temperature, pressure and mold are relatively low. The general thermoplastic molding machine can be processed at any time without adding special processing equipment to specific conditions. TPE raw materials are energy efficient because they do not require vulcanization or cure time is short and are easy to recycle.
As the trend of lightweight, comfortable and energy-saving cars strengthens, TPE raw materials will further replace traditional elastomers and thermoplastics, which is necessary for product innovation and the need to improve fuel economy.
