TPE’s are low modulus, flexible materials that can repeatedly be stretched at room temperature and return to their approximate original size when stress is released. TPE’s are quite versatile and are used in most market segments, including automotive/truck, agriculture, consumer goods, electrical/telecommunications, firearms, medical/pharmaceutical, sports/leisure, and wire/cable. TPE’s are processed using conventional thermoplastic equipment for extrusion, injection molding, blow molding, blown film, and calendaring. All TPE’s are colorable.
Amco's Focus is Taking Care of Our Customers

Imagine a material with outstanding toughness, strength over a wide range of flexibility and stiffness (modulus), while providing significant part design freedom. Sound too good to be true? It's TPU!
Nylon resins absorb moisture from the air. The properties of nylon moldings are directly affected by the amount of moisture they contain. Moisture acts as a plasticizer in nylon and therefore reduces strength and stiffness properties but increases elongation and toughness. In general, as moisture content rises, significant increases occur in impact strength and other energy absorbing characteristics of the material.
