Making gaskets for windows frames and doors is also possible with the so-called vulcanized thermoplastic elastomers, also known as TPV, which are the result of a plastic-elastomeric alloy that offers high performance and ease of processing.Furthermore the products obtained from vulcanized thermoplastic elastomers are completely recyclable and, like all materials characterized by an elastomeric phase, they are distinguished by the elastic properties and softness which are typical of the rubber.
The features of vulcanized thermoplastic elastomers
Vulcanized thermoplastic elastomers are among the finest materials, ideal for making gaskets for windows frames and doors, and they have important features that make them interesting for different sectors. In fact, they have a high elastic return at different temperatures, excellent resistance to UV, ozone and atmospheric ageing and they also resist to chemical agents (bases, acids, alcohols, detergents, aqueous solutions and solvents). In addition, they give positive response in relation to fatigue and if they are evaluated for the thermal and electrical insulation capacity. Besides, the products made of vulcanized thermoplastic elastomers resist to abrasion and in most cases have no problems with the colouring processes.
