Soft, low-compression-set and chemically resistant TPEs have been developed from advanced PVC blend technology. These blends have low-temperature flexibility comparable to that of commonly used TPEs and can be made flame-retardant. These new TPEs are suitable for applications in consumer products, automotive, wire and cable insulation, and jacketing. This new class of TPEs, suitable for injection and extrusion operations, represents a significant advance in PVC compounding technology.
