Create high performance long-lasting seals and gaskets with Santoprene™ TPV
Santoprene thermoplastic vulcanizates (TPV) provide outstanding toughness and longevity to seals, gaskets and grommets, and are resistant to flex fatigue, harsh temperatures and chemicals.
Santoprene TPV can replace thermoset rubber in a variety of applications, including:
Durable and reliable
The low compression set and improved stress relaxation of Santoprene TPV, compared to EPDM or alternatives, produces effective seals for long-term performance even in extremely low temperatures. With its excellent weatherability, it resists hardening and cracking with age. Santoprene TPV provides protection against acids, bases, cleaners and pollutants
Precise fit and design flexibility
Santoprene TPV provides excellent design flexibility, supported by coextrusion options and is easily colored. Tight tolerances maintain consistent fit of the profile into the attachment system.
Using less, delivering more
Santoprene TPV can help you reduce overall waste in the manufacturing process as the scrap produced during processing can be recycled. Time and cost savings can be achieved as Santoprene TPV is easy to process, and accommodates fast molding cycle times and parts consolidation. Fire-retardant UL certifications help accelerate product development and time to market.
UL, NSF and RoHS certification
Select Santoprene TPV grades meet various regulatory requirements including UL, NSF and RoHS, helping you get products to market faster. Compliance of Santoprene TPV with these standards may help reduce qualification costs and test protocols on finished products.
