TPO

TPO (thermoplastic polyolefin) – Crystallized elastic material. Mixture of polypropylene with unvulcanized rubber, mainly EPDM (EPDM), sometimes with a thermoplastic elastomer (POE). TPO usually refers to a material containing more than 20% rubber, with a smaller amount of rubber, the composition is referred to as an elasticized polypropylene.
