Thermoplastic Rubber:

Class of physical mix of polymers (a plastic and a rubber) which consist of materials with both Thermoplastic and Elastomeric properties. Thermoplastic Elastomers (TPE) show advantages typical of both rubbery materials and plastic materials. The principal difference between Thermoset Elastomers and Thermoplastic Elastomers is the type of cross-linking bond in their structures. Cross-linking is a critical structural factor which contributes to high impact elastic properties.

Unlike rubber-like elastomers, they do not require curing or vulcanization, as they are true thermoplastics. TPE's may be processed by conventional thermoplastic techniques such as injection molding. Because of the longer life of TPR in both extreme hot and cold environments, the material is often preferred over rubber.
