How to identify the TPR sole

Each TPR is the most common and most common materials.

But in daily life, many people do not know this pair of shoes to wear on the foot Is it right? Belongs to what we say TPR material, then I will teach you a few strokes of the most simple method of identification.
To find TPR first and other different outsole material to distinguish. Such as PVC and PU or rubber etc..

1, there are a lot of people can’t tell PVC and sole actually these two kinds of materials easy to recognize TPR, PVC, TPR to be heavy in the hand than the sole material. The elasticity of the sole TPR material is better than PVC, is the most simple method, the sole firm hold, the natural fall if you can bounce back word is TPR, PVC. Material sole is TPR cheaper, but quality is not good, especially in the winter, very easy to break the bottom.

2, the identification of rubber bottom is also very simple, Rb bottom has a characteristic that is not an injection hole, and the nose to smell it, taste put longer words will long color to white material things.

The surface of the sole is light, TR 3. Compared with the general TPR sole to some hard. Multiple injection hole injection holes TR TPR is very special.
In fact, is not difficult to recognize these materials contact more, see at a glance soles will know what is the material of the.
Summary: in short, as long as you combine several appeal list, plus daily of careful observation and experience it is not difficult to identify.

Thermoplastics For Shoe Inserts

Shoe inserts are increasingly popular among not only those who spend a great deal of their days on their feet, try but among those who require therapeutic support when walking. The construction of these inserts requires that they not only provide a comfortable cushion, but that they retain their shape even after repeated use. This is why thermoplastic elastomershttp://www.gainshine-tpe.com/ are so useful for shoe inserts, providing solutions that make people’s lives easier.

TPEs by their very nature are ideal for shoe inserts. As the substance is elastic by design, and when used in its super-soft gel form, it is able to stretch and mold itself to the foot of the wearer – an ideal situation when choosing rubbery shoe inserts. Because of the thermoplastic properties, though, the material is also able to retain its original shape after usage, allowing the inserts to be useful over and over again. Indeed, thermoplastics make for an ideal choice in any type of shoe insert.  Look to TPE gels for providing your customers with the utmost comfort while still guaranteeing utility.

Thermoplastic elastomers are used for more than comfort in the industry, though. Physical therapists recommend the use of the material in orthoses for their clients, and the nature of the substance makes it ideal for those who suffer from extreme pain or who require the inserts for their mobility. Many of the major orthotic manufacturers use TPE gel in their products for this reason, rendering their footwear not only comfortable for the end user but also therapeutic.

TPE Overmolding and Bonding

Design engineers choose TPEs for improved ergonomics, enhanced grip performance, improved aesthetics, and critical impact protection. Applications that benefit from TPE overmolds range from consumer goods to medical insruments to industrial tools and can include knobs, handles, gaskets, seals and grips.Benefits of Overmoldingtoothbrush.

With improvements in TPE materials technology, overmolded part designs have become less dependent on mechanical interlocks to hold a TPE in place. Chemical bonds between TPE and rigid materials offer improved part integrity and longevity while eliminating the need for adhesives or surface pre-treatments. System performance can be further optimized by including both chemical and mechanical bonds in the part design. The net benefit is greatly expanded design freedom.

Chemical bonds in Overmolding:
Improve product function
Increase margins
Expand product differentiation
Enable new design innovation

TPEs can match TPV performance

New styrenic thermoplastic elastomers are said to perform similarly tothermoplastic vulcanizates in window gaskets.
Its new series of GainShine TPEs also have advantages over TPVs, such as less — or no — die drool duringcoextrusion of the window gasket and resistance to staining from paints. Compounds in the GS E5 series adhere well to the polypropylene or high-modulus TPE substrate that serves as the rigid supporting component in weatherproof seals in PVC, metal and wood window frames.
Some grades in the series can be processed with the same tooling as PVC profiles at similar throughput rates and die pressures. Rubberlike seal recovery, low-temperature toughness and UV resistance of the GS E5 series provides resistance to moisture and air demanded in this application.

Areas of growth exist for global TPE market

The global thermoplastic elastomer market is maturing in some sectors, but still has areas of growth, Some TPEs are viewed as commodities, and their growth is slowing. The structure for those TPEs is shifting because of price pressure and overcapacity and There’s saturation in some market sectors.
thermoplastic elastomer
Use of thermoplastic polyolefins (TPOs) in auto bumper fascias and of thermoplastic polyurethanes (TPUs) and styrenic block copolymers (SBCs) in footwear are two TPE uses that are at the saturation point.
Uses of various TPEs for “soft touch” in sports, appliance, leisure and tool markets are areas that are mature and close to saturation.
TPEs still have many opportunities in the auto market.
Performance standards are changing, and that creates new opportunities. Thermoplastic vulcanizates and SBCs are challenging EPDM materials in auto glazing seals. TPEs also are moving into door seals and trunk seals. And even a basic market like floor mats presents a 300-million-pound opportunity for SBCs.
In the medical market, TPEs continue to see high growth despite early penetration. Prices for TPEs sold into medical applications can be two to three times higher than those sold into commodity applications. SBCs have been dominant in TPE medical uses, but copolyesters also have found a home in breathable films and gowns.
And although emerging market growth has slowed in recent years, China and India remain growth markets for TPEs.


Weight Reduction of Material – Interpretation of Industry Trend of K Messe 2016

In transportation, light weight is widely recognized as the key to reducing energy and fuel. Manufacturers of machinery for the plastics industry, manufacturers of plastic box enhancers, research institutes and plastic processors are working on large-scale production of lightweight components, particularly in the automotive and aircraft sectors.

In order to achieve mass production of lightweight components, special production methods, particularly reaction and injection molding technology, need to be integrated together to find the right solution.

Lightweight plastics or fiber composites, and polymer materials with matrix polymer reinforcement fibers and substrates can fast produce weight-optimized components with maximum processability.

In addition, K 2016 will show metal-plastic blends and polymer-fiber reinforcements. Thermoplastics, thermosets, and bio-based polyurethane substrates are being blended with glass, carbon and other synthetic or natural fibers to meet the requirements of modern applications. Substrate materials must meet flame retardant regulations, but also need to provide superior mechanical properties and fluidity, and fiber and matrix materials must provide adequate bonding properties.

By then, visitors can also see the gradual progress of lightweight multi-stage production process, including reinforced fiber and flexible materials, automated processing.

Conclusion: lightweight materials, whether it is in consideration of energy-saving, load-bearing or raw material costs, etc., have shown a new trend in the development of materials. To TPE's, currently the horn of weight reduction has been blown already. For example in the industry, micro-foam technology has now been widely used to reduce the density of materials.
