As a flexible plastic sheet with excellent thermoforming properties, TPO sheet has been widely used, especially in the auto parts industry. How much do you know about it? Click to learn more.
What is TPO sheet?
TPO is short for thermoplastic polyolefin, which is composed of rubber and polyolefin. Ethylenepropylene diene monomer (EPDM), polypropylene (PP), polyethylene (PE), and polyolefin elastomer (POE) are the most important raw materials. The TPO sheet we produce can be a blend of EPDM and PP, or a blend of EPDM, PP, and PE.
What are the properties of TPO sheet?
Compared with PVC material, TPO sheet is lightweight with a density of 0.96g/cm3. TPO combines the performance advantages of EPDM and PVC, has the weather resistance, toughness and flexibility of EPDM, and also has the weldability of PVC.
Its temperature resistance range is minus 60 degrees Celsius to 135 degrees Celsius. TPO sheet is rubbery and highly elastic at room temperature, and can be formed like plastic at high temperature. Therefore, it has good processability and mechanical properties, and has strong welding properties.
TPO products can withstand a variety of adverse elements, such as harsh weather, chemicals, strong vibration and thermal stress.
What is the use of TPO sheet?
The main and most popular application field of TPO sheet is auto parts.
In terms of automotive exterior parts, it is mainly used for bumpers, radiators, chassis, body panels, wheel guards, movable roofs and other protective strips, windshield strips, etc. In terms of interior parts, it can be used as instrument panel and door trim panel, outer material of airbag, floor mat, trunk mat, etc.
