TPE-thermoplastic elastomer is a new material with high elasticity, strength and resilience of rubber. TPE is an environmentally friendly non-toxic material, soft to the touch, good weather resistance and no plasticizer. The price is between 25,000-50,000 yuan/ton, and it is widely used in daily necessities that come into contact with the human body.
PVC - Polyvinyl chloride, a toxic chlorine-containing resin. Plasticizers are added during processing. The larger the plasticizer content, the softer the material. It is widely used in building materials and artificial leather. The price is between 8000-12000 yuan/ton. PVC plastic products will slowly decompose hydrogen chloride gas at high temperature, such as about 50 ℃, which is harmful to human body.
Compared with PVC gloves, TPE gloves are more resistant to high and low temperature and have better elasticity. In recent years, the voice of environmental protection has become more and more loud. Therefore, TPE, an energy-saving and environmentally friendly thermoplastic elastomer, has begun to replace PVC in many fields.
