Thermoplastic Elastomer (TPE)
TPE – Soft and Flexible, Safe and Reliable.
Kent Elastomer Products produces high-quality specialty-engineered thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) tubing that is an efficient and cost-effective alternative for latex, silicone and polyvinyl chloride (PVC) compounds.
TPE compounds are used to manufacture products to the exacting standards of our customers.
Our customers choose TPE tubing for numerous applications, particularly in the medical and food/beverage industries. We carry FDA, NSF and USP Class VI material compounds for these markets.
Thermoplastic Elastomers exhibit excellent physical properties and performance characteristics, including:
- Easy sterilization
- Low extractables
- Dimensional stability
- Chemical inertness
- Tighter tolerances
- Good vapor and gas transmission properties
Thermoplastic elastomers combine many of the properties of natural rubber latex with the processing efficiency of plastics – resulting in a highly elastic and resistant tubing material.
A Top Choice for the Medical and Food/Beverage Industries
With our FDA, NSF and USP Class VI material compounds and stringent quality standards, rest assured KEP TPE products are safe. From compounds that offer an alternative for those with latex allergies to a versatile range of compounds and sizing, thermoplastic elastomer is a top choice for new and re-engineered products.
Innovative Products Start with TPE
Thermoplastic elastomer products’ thermal and stability properties are excellent when exposed to environmental effects and lead to improved product quality. KEP manufactures thermoplastic elastomer tubing sizes from .063″ I.D. with O.D.s up to 1” including a wide range of wall thicknesses, finishes and colors, and more customer specifications.
