Thermoplastic Elastomer (TPE)
Soft and flexible – safe and reliable.
Our research and development strengths give KEP the advantage to produce high quality specialty-engineered thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) tubing. It 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
- Excellent clarity
- Dimensional stability
- Chemical inertness
- Tighter tolerances
- Good vapor and gas transmission properties
