This technology profile features various key facts about thermoplastic silicone vulcanizate. It will familiarize you with TSiV strengths & limitations, their basic characteristics, significant properties, processing guidelines, market applications and key features that make thermoplastic silicone vulcanizate ideal for use.

Thermoplastic Silicone Vulcanizate

  • Thermoplastic silicone vulcanizate (TSiV) or thermoplastic vulcanizate (TPV) are a special class of thermoplastic elastomers.
  • They contain a cross linked rubber phase dispersed in a thermoplastic polymer phase.
  • TSiV materials are recyclable and have an elastomeric feel and appearance.
  • Thermoplastic Silicone Vulcanizate offer excellent mechanical properties and retain them at very high and very low temperatures.
  • All these properties make TSiV/ TPV ideal for automotive, consumer goods, industrial and several other applications.
