Since the start of COVID-19, there has been a greater demand for disposable gloves, especially since Bao's mother always wears them when she goes out to avoid getting the virus on her hands and touching babies.When I buy disposable gloves, I find that they are made of CPE and TPE. What is the difference between disposable gloves made of CPE and TPE?
Let's look at the difference between CPE gloves and TPE gloves.
CPE performance characteristics: CPE - polyvinyl chloride, is a toxic chlorinated resin, the processing of the addition of plasticizer, plasticizer content is greater, the material is more soft, widely used in building materials, artificial leather.PVC plastic products at a higher temperature, such as about 50 degrees Celsius will slowly decompose hydrogen chloride gas. The processing process has a stench. This gas is harmful to the human body, easy to pollute the environment.Because of its low price, CPE materials are widely used in many fields.In recent years, the global call for environmental protection is getting higher and higher, and people are also paying more and more attention to environmental protection and health. Therefore, energy-saving and environmentally friendly TPE materials have begun to replace CPE in many application fields.
TPE performance characteristics: TPE - thermoplastic elastomer is a kind of rubber with high elasticity, high strength, high resilience of new materials.TPE material soft touch, good weather resistance, does not contain plasticizer, is a kind of environmentally friendly non-toxic material, the price is about 2-50 thousand/ton, widely used in the daily necessities in contact with the human body.Because TPE waste can be 100% recycled, cost saving, convenient production and processing, without vulcanization, the general thermoplastic molding machine can be processed, processing methods are injection molding, extrusion, blow molding, rolling and so on.
TPE gloves have the characteristics of aging resistance, high elasticity, oil resistance, convenient processing, easy production;
CPE gloves are cheap, soft and have a wide range of applications.
CPE gloves are easy to decompose hydrogen chloride gas at 50℃, which is harmful to the human body. The production and processing process will pollute the environment, and the safety is relatively low.
TPE gloves, on the other hand, are environmentally friendly materials that can be recycled and reused without releasing toxicity at high temperatures, making them safer for people to use.
CPE gloves and TPE gloves from the first production process are not the same, whether the pressure, crystallization, flow are different, the production of feel, tension, sheet naturally have relatively large differences.
TPE gloves cost about three times as much as CPE gloves.
