Ensuring that we provide our customers with the very best available in the thermoforming and injection molding industries, Advanced Plastiform provides a wide variety of materials to work with and from which to create your custom plastic products. TPO, also known as thermoplastic olefin, thermoplastic polyolefin, or olefinic thermoplastic elastomers, is one of the several materials we can use to create your project to exacting specifications.
What is TPO?
Not as commonly used as HMWPE or PP, Thermoplastic Olefin is a blend of these two materials, rubber and reinforcing filler. Depending upon the filler used, TPO’s extruded characteristics can be modified to enhance strength, scratch resistance, impact resistance, and weight. This makes TPO ideal for products or projects that require durability and long-term use as products made from TPO can withstand hard weather conditions and exposure to the sun without losing color.
What Products are Made from TPO?
TPO is often used in outdoor products such as roofing for all-terrain vehicles, automobiles, golf carts, and other vehicles because it does not degrade under solar UV radiation and maintains its shape and integrity in both cold and hot weather over long periods of time. TPO can also have a variety of paint colors and finishes that will last in spite of wear and tear.
TPO can be both thermoformed and injection molded, which makes it versatile for many different kinds of products and projects. In addition to automotive applications, TPO can also be used for housings and parts of household appliances.
