Thermoplastic polyetherester elastomer (TPEE) is a linear block co-polymer made out of dicarboxylic acid derivatives, long-chain diols (molecular weight, 600 to 6000), and a mixture of diols with low-molecular weight. TPEE is produced through a melting transesterification process.
TPEE has all the properties of vulcanized rubber grades, especially compression resistance at room temperature and lower temperatures. When compared to rubber, it is easier to process and has a longer service life. TPEE has a wide hardness range, high structural performance, flexibility, impact resistance, easy processability, good melt flowability, melt state stability, low shrinkage, and quick crystallization.
TPEE is ideal for parts and fibers that need excellent bending fatigue properties and a large operational temperature range. It has high cut & tear propagation, creep strain, and friction resistance.
