Better colorability than TPVs, resulting in more vibrant and consistent colors

There are many advantages of StarPrene® TPE over TPVs. TPEs have far better colorability than TPVs, resulting in more vibrant and consistent colors. Thermoplastic elastomer material does not need to be dried before processing, which saves both time and money. TPEs offer improved tensile strength and elongation over TPVs. While the StarPrene® line has similar flow characteristics to TPVs, it is also offered in high flow grades and is recyclable.
