Viprene® TPV Developed for Rugged Applications

Engineered under the direction of the plastic industry’s leading engineers, Roger Huarng and Stephane Morin, APS Elastomers’ Viprene® thermoplastic vulcanizates (TPVs) are compounded with a polyolefin phase and a cross-linked EPDM phase, which give products rubber-like performance. With a high compression set for rugged applications, Viprene® high performance P-Series TPV can be ordered in natural or black pellets and is available in a wide range of Shore hardnesses – from 35 Shore A to 50 Shore D.

Applications include, but are not limited to, gaskets, O-rings, door and window seals, power steering, brake and fuel hoses, electrical insulation, construction and industrial parts.

Benefits of Viprene® P-Series of TPVs include:

  • ·         Processes like a thermoplastic material

  • ·         High heat stability; low temperature flexibility

  • ·         Resistant to oils

  • ·         Excellent abrasion resistance

  • ·         Lightweight
