Santoprene TPV Reduced system cost

Reduced system cost

Santoprene™ TPVs offer ease of processing and design flexibility to help reduce costs in a wide range of applications. Designers can specify Santoprene TPVs instead of heavier polymeric materials to decrease production costs and increase manufacturing efficiency.

Ease of processing
Santoprene TPVs are easily processed on standard thermoplastics equipment, which helps lower manufacturing costs and decrease waste versus thermoset rubber materials. They can be injection molded, extruded, blow molded or thermoformed. This versatility contributes to:

  • A broad processing window
  • Fast cycle times
  • Tight tolerances in part design 

Santoprene TPVs also facilitate processing through two-component (2K) injection molding, resulting in reduced trimming and rework when compared to thermoset rubber processing.

Design flexibility
Santoprene TPVs are suitable for co-extrusion with other hard and soft polymers (except for PVC) and are easily processed. These characteristics enable designers to create parts with precise design tolerances and to simplify multipart system designs.
