StarPet by Star Thermoplastics

Are you looking for a durable, safe material for use in pet toys? If so, StarPet® TPE 8000 Series is the right product for you! Formulated specifically for use in a variety of pet products, StarPet® TPEs can be molded into both thick and thin parts that will hold up against the bite of pets. StarPet® TPEs have also been used in two shot molded parts with varying hardness and features.

We have rated our material based upon a Star Biteability Index. For extra small to small breed animals who are casual chewers to aggressive chewers, try StarPet material rated with a 1 star to 3 stars. For medium to larger breed animals, we look to the more durable StarPet materials rated at 3 stars to 5 stars and great bite resistance.

Our dogs deserve a better chew toy

All StarPet® thermoplastic elastomer products are very durable, with great clarity, weatherability, and bite strength allowing you to offer attractive, long lasting products. It’s also FDA compliant, ensuring you’ll have a non-toxic pet product.

StarPet® is a thermoplastic elastomer and latex-free, limiting the risk of pet and owner allergies. StarPet® TPEs can often be used as a replacement for thermoset rubber; thermoset rubber contains latex, which is well documented to cause allergic reactions.

You can be confident that StarPet® TPE material is formulated without PVC, latex and phthalates. StarPet® TPEs also has high flow materials available, making them easier to process.
