TEP is a high-tech composite material consisting of an elastomeric phase evenly distributed in a
thermoplastic matrix. Processing of thermoplastic elastomers is achieved by standard methods of
processing thermoplastics - extrusion, injection molding, vacuum molding, etc. and does not require
special skills of workers.
TEP can be recycled after crushing. With a share of secondary material not higher than 20%, the products will retain their final properties.
Unlike rubbers, material processing does not need vulcanization and the stage of preparation of rubber compounds. Due to the presence of the elastomeric phase, products made of TEC have rubber-like properties, such as elasticity, shape memory, frost resistance and softness, but at the same time have higher wear resistance, which significantly improves product quality.
