Dryflex Thermoplastic Vulcanisates (TPV)


Thermoplastic Vulcanisate or TPV compounds are high performance materials designed for demanding and dynamic applications.

They are composed of a highly vulcanised rubber phase dispersed throughout a thermoplastic matrix and combine the processing ease, efficiency and recyclability of a thermoplastic with the improved flexibility, low compression set and resistance to aggressive fluids of a vulcanised rubber.

This combination makes TPV’s ideal for variety of applications in several markets such as automotive, construction and appliances.

Our Dryflex TPV range offers:

  • A wide range of hardness’
  • Grades that can be processed by injection moulding, extrusion, blow moulding and thermoforming
  • Service temperatures of -60°C to 135°C
  • Improved resistance to aggressive fluids such as oils, acids, bases and aqueous solutions
  • Low compression set
  • Low flex fatigue
  • Lightweight parts
  • Design flexibility
  • Recyclability
  • Excellent weathering and environmental resistance
