With the combined properties of plastics and rubber, thermoplastic TPE is widely used in high-grade shoe soles, asphalt modification, plastic modification, and adhesives. It can be directly processed by injection molding, recycled to lower costs, and used to produce anti-skip soles, as a substitute for PVC and traditional vulcanized rubber.

TPE's have the characteristics of low-viscosity, high-modifiability and blendability, which makes them ideal as a modifier for building materials, asphalt, and water-proofing materials.

Impact and low temperature resistance can be significantly improved by introducing a small amount of TPE in polypropylene, polyethylene, polystyrene and other polymers. These can be used in technical devices, automotive parts, sports equipment, toys and industrial products.

TPE also exhibits excellent compatibility with tackifiers. It can be used to produce adhesives with good strength and still meetstrict environmental requirements. The resulting blends can be used in pressure-sensitive tapes, labels, diapers and other hygiene products.

Taipol and Vector SBS, SIS and SEBS can meet the needs of clients in many different fields and provides a unique competitive advantage in the industry that requires high degree of customized formulations.

With this partnership Ter Hell strengthens their activities as raw material supplier of the adhesive & compounding industry. The agreement helps ensure Ter Hell can be a reliable partner in this broad industry field.
