Additives for Thermoplastic Elastomers(TPE TPEE)

TPE Introduction

Thermoplastic elastomers, sometimes referred to as thermoplastic rubbers, are a class of copolymers or a physical mix of polymers that consist of materials with both thermoplastic and elastomeric properties.

TPEE is an abbreviation of Thermoplastic copolyester elastomer which has the flexibility of rubber, the strength of plastic, and the processability of thermoplastic.


Baoxu Additives for TPE

Baoxu Chemical Supply Antioxidants, Colorants, flame-retardants, Heat Stabilizers, Impact Modifiers, Lubricants, OBAs, UV Stabilizers for TPE plastics.  We Simply Plastic Compounding. Color, Flame retardants, and Heat & UV resistance are 3 difficulties in polypropylene processing.


Antioxidant for TPE

Polymer antioxidants can be added to improve the shelf life of the product or to improve its high-temperature stability. while adding a stability margin during thermal processing. Antioxidant BX AO 1010, BX AO 245, BX AO 168 is used a general-purpose Antioxidant for TPE plastics.


Pigment and Dyes for TPE

Colorants give color to polymers, plastics, coatings, inks, and fiber. Every color we see in our daily life is related to colorants. For industry usage colorants, we offer organic pigments, solvent dyes, fluorescent pigments, and titanium dioxide. In the colorant portfolio, our products are analogs to BASF and other brands.


Flame Retardant for TPE

Combustion could occur when a substance is heated to its flammable temperature in the presence of oxygen. Flame retardants are generally designed to provide a particular level of resistance to ignition or flame spread. This is achieved by suppressing oxygen availability, building up of char at the surface, inhibiting the combustion reaction within the flame area, or by other mechanics.

Halogen Flame Retardants for TPE

BX FR DBDPE, antimony trioxide can be used as halogen flame retardant for TPE.

Halogen Free Flame Retardants for TPE

For halogen-free flame retardants for TPE, MCA, and ADP can be used as non-flame retardants for TPE.


Lubricant for TPE

Lubricants are a kind of additive used to improve the processing and appearance of polymers. The function of lubricants is to reduce friction, improve fluidity and mold release during resin or compound processing, and increase the surface smoothness of products. Erucamide, silicon masterbatch can be used as lubricant for TPE.


Optical Brightener for TPE

Optical brighteners are used to mask yellow or increase the whiteness of plastics, inks, coatings, paper, and fiber. OB and KSN can be used in TPE as optical brighteners.


UV Stabilizer for TPE

UV stabilizers contain two types of light stabilizers: Ultraviolet Light Absorbers (UVA) and Hindered-Amine Light Stabilizers (HALS), used individually or as blends. UVA filters harmful UV light and helps prevent color change and delamination of coatings, adhesives, and sealants. HALS trap free radicals once they are formed and are effective in retaining surface properties such as gloss and preventing cracking and chalking of paints. The combination of these two families is highly synergistic., BX UV 866, BX UV 329, BX UV 770 can be used as uv additives for TPE products.
