Thermoplastic compounds sometimes referred to as thermoplastic rubbers or thermoplastic elastomers, are a class of copolymers which consist of materials with both thermoplastic and elastomeric properties.
Thermoplastic Compounds are easy to use in manufacturing by injection molding. Thermoplastic compounds show advantages typical of both rubbery materials and plastic materials. Thermoplastic Compounds materials have the potential to be recyclable since they can be molded, extruded and reused like plastics, but they have typical elastic properties of rubbers which are not recyclable owing to their thermosetting characteristics. Thermoplastic Compounds also require little or no compounding, with no need to add reinforcing agents, stabilizers or cure systems and can be easily colored by most types of dyes.
Besides that, it consumes less energy and closer and more economical control of product quality is possible. The disadvantages of Thermoplastic Compounds relative to conventional rubber or thermoset is the low thermal stability because Thermoplastic Compounds soften or melt at elevated temperature above which they lose their rubbery behaviour. The two most important manufacturing methods with Thermoplastic Compounds are extrusion and injection molding. The processing of the Thermoplastic Compounds by injection molding is extremely rapid and highly economical.
