Thermoplastic Elastomers (TPEs)

Designed through in-house custom developed technology, GRP manufactures Thermoplastic Elastomers (TPEs) based on proprietary blends of virgin and de-vulcanised elastomers like EPDM, SBR with thermoplastics like Polypropylene, Polyethylene, and Ethylene-Vinyl Acetate Co-polymer.

Why GRP TPE Solutions?

All the TPE variants that we manufacture provide a variety of benefits and advantages. Some of the plus points of these solutions are ...

  • Eco-friendly
    It is an environmentally friendly product and is 100% recyclable.
  • Cost-effective
    Our TPE solutions are competitively priced as compared to conventional TPEs in the market today.
  • Variety
    We manufacture an extensive array of TPEs; available in a wide range of hardness spanning from Shore A 50 to Shore D 55.
  • Chemical & Weather Resistant
    Our TPEs are resistant to a variety of common chemicals and perform in different weather conditions.
  • Tack-free
    Our TPEs are tack-free and can be used where 'Soft Touch' feel is required.
