SARLINK TPV AND TPE

Sarlink® Think Performance and Value

The Sarlink® TPV product line has been steadily displacing EPDM rubber in automotive sealing system applications for decades. Sarlink® TPVs exhibit excellent elastic properties, chemical and fluid resistance and improved long term performance over EPDM due to better UV resistance and heat aging properties. Sarlink® TPV compounds are available in pellet form, in natural or black, and can be processed on conventional injection molding, blow molding, or extrusion equipment. Sarlink® TPVs can also be processed by 2K or insert molding, adhering to polyolefins and other TPVs.

Sarlink® TPEs
Expanding the Sarlink® portfolio to include styrenic thermoplastic elastomers (TPEs), introduces a new level of compounding versatility for automotive solutions. The unique rheology of Sarlink® TPE materials allows for a wide range of performance characteristics and greater versatility and customization to OEM material requirements. Styrenic compounds exhibit excellent colorability and are available in a broad hardness range.
