Thermo Plastic Elastomers (TPE) are a range of polymers that can be moulded or extruded like a plastic when over their melt temperature, but exhibit properties of thermo set rubber.

The advantage of using TPE over thermo set rubber is that it can be easily re-moulded and re-worked whereas organic rubbers cannot. TPE can be soft, stretchy and flexible or hard and rigid depending on the mix of compounds used.
