Thermoplastic polymers are defined as a unique group of polymers whose structure can be softened / melted under the application of heat and are then returns to its original state under cooling environment. On the other hand, thermoplastic elastomers (TPE) are defined as thermoplastics that possess the characteristics of rubber but are manufactured without the process of vulcanization. In fact, TPEs are processed with by using plastic manufacturing equipment such as, injection molding, blow molding, and extrusion. Notably, thermoplastic elastomers offer a wide array of advantages, such as low level of extractables, sterilizability features, cost-effectiveness and excellent sealing and adhesion performance properties. It is worth highlighting that in the recent years, TPE plastics have seen extensive applications within the medical industry, like utilization for manufacturing of dental equipment, syringe seals and caps, lids, closures, membranes and valves.
Some of the recent developments within the thermoplastic elastomers market include:
- Signing of partnership agreement between Chase Plastics and Elastron for the distribution of latter’s thermoplastic elastomers portfolio.
- Launch of Liveo Pharma TPE Tubing product line by DuPont as a step to include extruded pharma tubing based on TPE technology.
