Elastomer Thermoplastic

A cross linked elastomer

Vegaprene is a cross-linked elastomer processed by thermoplastic manufacturing equipment.

It combines the best of two worlds: good elongation, elasticity and thermal properties of rubber with low processing costs and recyclability of thermoplastics.

Vegaprene is a homogeneous structure of rubber and fine nodules of thermoplastics.
Vegaprene is available in pellets.
