What material is TPE?

Is tpe material harmful to the body? Is it toxic, including TPE? This is the question of many consumers at present. As a material in close contact with people, TPE has naturally attracted public attention for its environmental protection and non-toxic properties. Simply put, TPE is an elastic plastic with rubber and PVC characteristics. In daily life, common products made of TPE materials include TPE pillows, tool handles, diving supplies, sports equipment, casters, ice trays, doll toys, etc. , Luggage accessories, wires and cables, adult products, auto parts, stationery, environmental protection membranes, elastic tubes, seals and other plastic products. Next, China Plastics will focus on explaining what material TPE is and whether TPE material is harmful to the body:

What material is TPE?
TPE, also known as thermoplastic elastomer, is a material with rubber's high elasticity, high strength, high resilience, and injection molding characteristics. Environmental protection, non-toxic, safe, wide range of hardness, excellent colorability, soft touch, weather resistance, fatigue resistance and temperature resistance, superior processing performance, no need for vulcanization, recyclable and cost reduction. It can be secondary Injection molding. It can be coated and bonded with PP, PE, PC, PS, ABS and other substrates, or it can be formed separately.

Is TPE material harmful to the body?
TPE is an environmentally friendly non-toxic material, non-toxic material that does not produce environmental hormones. And TPE has the effect of non-slip and wear-resistant. Molded with hard plastic, it has good adhesion to the main polypropylene material. The two materials are soft and hard, and the two colors are matched. PP provides the strength of the cutting board, and TPE provides the anti-skid performance of the cutting board. , While increasing the beauty of the product. Compared with ordinary plastics, the TPU design with 3-4 times stronger strength will not produce odor. TPE material has the following characteristics:
1. Superior hand feeling: high strength; high elasticity; high flexibility; delicate and smooth; non-sticky.
2. Superior performance: UV resistance; aging resistance; acid and alkali resistance; fatigue resistance.
3. Easy to process: good fluidity; light specific gravity; easy to color. Suitable for injection molding; extrusion molding.
4. Green and environmental protection: in line with FDA (n-hexane); LFGB (olive oil) testing standards.
5. Molding process: first clean the machine with PP (polypropylene); molding temperature is 180-210℃.
6. Application areas: baby products; medical products; tableware; daily necessities; kitchen and bathroom products; environmental protection.
7. Products that require food grade requirements. (It can be overmolded with PP and PE).
8. Processing method: injection molding or extrusion molding.

Is TPE material harmful to the body?
Therefore, TPE materials are completely non-toxic and environmentally friendly, and comply with EU environmental protection ROHS certification. Please rest assured. However, Shanjin recommends that consumers choose TPE material manufacturers with quality assurance of well-known brands when choosing TPE materials to produce finished products. They will strictly control the quality of materials and meet relevant testing standards to ensure the non-toxic safety of materials and products.

TPE pillows are very popular pillows recently. WEADDU brand TPE pillows are very comfortable and have high resilience. Release head and neck pressure without oppressing the blood vessels in the head and neck, effectively care for the cervical spine and maintain normal physiological curves, with warm and cool touch material, breathable mesh, and comfortable hand feeling. It is worth buying, so you can sleep comfortably.
