According to feedstock, we general classify TPE into following types:
Styrenic block copolymers, TPS (TPE-s)
Thermoplastic polyolefinelastomers, TPO
Thermoplastic Vulcanizates, TPV
Thermoplastic polyurethanes, TPU
Thermoplastic copolyester, TPC (TPE-E)
Thermoplastic polyamides, TPA
According to manufacturing process,we could divide this six into two groups :Block copolymer and TPE Compounds.Mechanical blends of polyolefin and rubber(TPO),cross linked oil-extended rubber dispersed in a polyolefin matrix(TPV),Block copolymers such as SEBS and TPU.
