Santoprene™ TPV  

Santoprene TPV was created out of a simple concept that revolutionized the industry more than 40 years ago – develop a ready-to-use material that behaves like a rubber but can be processed like a thermoplastic. Compared to materials such as EPDM (ethylene propylene diene polymethylene backbone) or other thermoset rubbers, Santoprene thermoplastic vulcanizates (TPVs) offer:

• Total system costs reduction through manufacturing simplification

• Weight reduction through part redesign

• In process recycling during the conversion phase and the potential for recycling at the end of life*

* When a finished part reaches its end-of-life, components made with Santoprene TPV can potentially be recovered and recycled by those with the necessary recycling equipment.


Santoprene TPV is a proven solution serving markets as diversified and demanding as automotive, building and construction, industrial and consumer products through:

• Total system cost reduction

• Excellent performance over time

• Design flexibility

• Superb aesthetics
