Americhem Thermoplastic Elastomer Technology & TPE Compounds

What are Thermoplastic Elastomers?

Thermoplastic elastomers, or TPEs, are “rubber-like” polymers that are not fully chemically cross-linked, yet have the ability to exhibit rubber properties. Using various polymer and/or filler blends, these materials can be modified to achieve a wide array of properties for custom applications.

The Americhem Advantage in TPE

Americhem’s custom color is applied to thermoplastic elastomers to reduce material cost and improve manufacturing efficiency. Our thermoplastic elastomers are the performance materials of choice to meet the demands of high efficiency and cost conscious manufacturers.
