Monprene belongs to the thermoplastic elastomers (TPE) material family, and is a versatile material that is primarily comprised of styrene-butadiene-styrene (SBS) and styrene-ethylene-butadiene-styrene (SEBS), as well as thermoplastic vulcanizates (TPV) and thermoplastic polyolefin (TPO).
Monprene is very flexible and can be adapted to specific aesthetic and functional requirements. The material’s characteristic properties are high elasticity and a wide hardness interval. It has a light natural color that is easy to color to the desired shade.
Monprene TPE has good resistance to most household chemicals and can be used across a wide temperature range. Monprene TPE is available in variants approved for contact with skin and foodstuffs.
Monprene TPE is well suited to consumer products, packaging, and industrial applications with requirements on e.g. sealing properties.
