APS Elastomers’ Viprene® TPVs Lighten the Load

Government requirements for reduced vehicle weight for fuel economy has in turn created the need for lightweight towable recreational vehicles.  Viprene® TPVs are a cost-effective, lightweight alternative for use in a variety of components used in campers, snowmobiles, boats, and other recreational vehicles that require reduced weight for towing. 

Available in natural or black pellets with a Shore hardness range of 35A-50D, Viprene® TPVs provide flexibility over a wide temperature range and resistance to degradation from water, oil, and grease.  Additionally, Viprene® TPVs offer a better compression set, are fatigue resistant, dimensionally stable and offer heat aging stability, low temperature flexibility and excellent U.V. and ozone stability.  “Our Viprene® TPV can be formulated to individual specifications needed in a variety of applications that require reduced weight”, says Stephane Morin, owner of APS Elastomers.
