APS offers an extrusion blow moldable Viprene® grade as an alternative to higher priced TPVs and can be substituted for more costly parts made out of silicone or ethylene-acrylic rubber boots. The material can be press blow-molded, suction blow-molded or 3D sequential co-extruded. With a formulation optimized for a variety of parts needed for their softness and in temperatures ranging from 40-175 °C while retaining flexibility, the TPV is available in Shore A hardness of 90.
