Romulus, MI (April 14, 2014) APS Elastomers’ high performance Viprene® TPV (thermoplastic vulcanizates)  are stable and can be processed in a wide temperature range without showing signs of degradation.  “Our Viprene® TPV is formulated to reduce processing cost by obtaining lower viscosity; allowing shorter fill time, longer flow paths, and lower injection pressure, “ says Stephane Morin, owner of APS Elastomers.

Available in Shore Hardness of 35A to 50D, Viprene® TPVs are compounded with a polyolefin phase and a cross-linked EPDMK phase which gives products rubber-like performanceThey can be optimized with specific softness needed in a variety of parts.
