The difference between TPR and PVC

TPR material characteristics:

 

TPR Chinese name is thermoplastic rubber, also known as TPE, with black, natural, transparent particles. TPR thermoplastic rubber is a new type of environmentally friendly, non-toxic, recyclable material that can be molded by injection molding, extrusion, blow molding, etc. The molding process is simple, and it can be directly processed and molded using general thermoplastic injection molding without the need for vulcanization. TPR material can also be used for secondary injection molding. It can be molded with PP, ABS, PS, PC, PA or other hard plastics, or it can be molded separately. Wide range of applications in life, such as TPR shoe soles, TPR adult supplies, TPR handles, TPR soft children and other typical cases, is the best material to replace PVC!

 

PVC material characteristics:

 

The main component of PVC is PVC, so some people call him the Chinese name is PVC, the color is slightly yellow translucent, shiny, PVC adds a plasticizer, resulting in PVC cheap, in the waste disposal of PVC waste will be Produce a toxic carcinogen, cause harm to the human body, destroy the environment and atmosphere, do not use recycling and environmental protection.

 

  Through understanding the above characteristics, we can understand that TPR is a kind of new material that is environmentally friendly, non-toxic and recyclable. The processing is relatively simple. It can also be molded with a variety of hard plastics, or it can be molded separately. It is widely used in daily life. However, PVC has a low price and will produce a toxic carcinogen when it is burned. It will cause harm to the human body, destroy the environment and the atmosphere, and cannot be recycled or environmental-protected. The application area is relatively small.
