TPE-Metal Parts

Cost-effective alternative to rubber composite parts.

Get to know our latest specialty: TPE-metal bonded parts! In line with our ZORGE “single source” service, we have recently expanded our production range to offer you an even greater variety of elastomer moulded parts and more service. Our focus here is also on individual and customer-oriented solutions – whether it is for small series or mass production on state-of-the-art, fully automated production systems.

TPE (thermoplastic elastomers) and rubber (elastomers) are both polymers, but their technical differences are significant: elastomers return to their original shape after elastic deformation. Since this effect is not necessary for all technical applications TPE or TPU come into play as significantly cheaper material alternatives.

Thermo-plastic elastomer mixtures have developed further in terms of composition and production in recent years, so that their areas of application are moving ever closer to those of “rubber” elastomers. TPE have relatively good temperature resistance and high dimensional accuracy.

Instead of rubber, you benefit from several advantages by choosing TPE! With TPE, you can not only ensure that your application is recyclable and fluorine-free – an important aspect in view of the current discussions about PFAS -, but TPE also allows you to create a wide range of colours according to your wishes.

But that’s not all: you can achieve considerable cost savings of up to 80 percent with TPE or TPU compared to conventional elastomers. This results from shorter cycle times and generally burr-free production, which eliminates the need for time-consuming reworking of parts.
