Supplying Quality Thermoplastic Rubber Gaskets to Various Industries for Decades
Thermoplastic elastomers, also known as TPE’s, are a mix of polymers such as a plastic and a rubber, that consist of materials with both thermoplastic and elastomeric properties. SRP has been providing custom converted Thermolastic rubber components to various industries for many years. Thermoplastic rubber gaskets can be manufactured and supplied in a variety of different shapes, sizes, thicknesses, and densities. SRP can custom laminate tapes to Thermoplastic rubber materials to create an adhesive backed component for a part that requires adhesion to various surfaces.
Thermoplastic rubber gaskets combine the desirable characteristics of vulcanized rubber, such as flexibility and low compression set, but are processed with a greater cost advantage. This material can be formulated to provide weather resistance, ozone resistance, low temperature flexibility as well as excellent resistance to many oils and chemicals.
Thermoplastic rubber gaskets are used in a variety of applications including:
- food and beverage
- consumer electronic markets
Thermoplastic rubber gaskets are similar to EPDM rubber gaskets due to their environmental resistance. Its fluid resistance is comparable to general purpose Neoprene rubber gaskets compounds; giving Thermoplastic a unique combination that can be used in a broad range of applications.
We provide application solutions for gasketing, cushioning, sealing, protecting, shielding and more! We can supply samples of materials and run quick prototyping if any material or part testing is required. Design assistance is also available to ensure the proper materials are being used per the application.
