TPE Gloves VS PE Gloves-YICHANG
TPE stands for Thermoplastic Elastomer.TPE is a kind of elastomer which has the elasticity of rubber at room temperature and can be plasticized at high temperature.The structure of thermoplastic elastomer is characterized by different resin segment and rubber segment composed of chemical bonds. The resin segment forms physical crosslinking points by means of inter-chain forces. The rubber segment is a highly elastic chain segment and contributes elasticity.The physical crosslinking of plastic segment changes reversibly with the change of temperature, which shows the plastic processing characteristics of thermoplastic elastomer.Therefore, thermoplastic elastomer has the physical and mechanical properties of vulcanized rubber and the processing performance of thermoplastic plastics. It is a new kind of polymer material between rubber and resin, and is often called the third generation rubber.
Polyethylene is short for PE, which is a thermoplastic resin made by polymerization of ethylene.In industry, this also includes copolymers of ethylene with small amounts of α-olefin.Polyethylene odorless, non-toxic, feel like wax, has excellent low temperature resistance (the lowest temperature can reach -100~-70°C), good chemical stability, can resist most acid and alkali erosion (not resistant to oxidizing acid).Insoluble in general solvents at normal temperature, small water absorption, excellent electrical insulation.
PE can be added as a component to TPE
The core components of TPE are SEBS and white oil.PE has certain compatibility with SEBS.But PE is incompatible with oil.A certain amount of PE can be added to the TPE blending system to improve the hardness of the material and appropriately reduce the cost.However, it is necessary to pay attention to the amount of PE and oil added in the TPE blending system to prevent oil precipitation.
PE gloves are the cheapest disposable plastic gloves on the market.The price is the main reason why it sells well.
Our HDPE and LDPE gloves are made of food grade plastic resin material.It can come in direct contact with food.
are an upgraded version of CPE gloves.The different materials and manufacture make them stronger around nitrile than CPE gloves, and even stronger than Vinyl Gloves
.If the gloves weigh more than 3.0g, the tensile strength can reach 3.6N and 500%.Food factories use it.
What is better about TPE gloves than PE gloves?
1. Softer than ordinary PE gloves.
2, Better embossing.
3. Easier to wear, better adhesion.
4, Stronger flexibility, puncture resistance.
