Thanks to their molecular structure, the thermoplastic elastomers have the elastic characteristics of the elastomers, but they can be processed as thermoplastic materials with remarkable advantages both in processing easiness and flexibility.
For this reason, they have quickly spread in a wide range of sectors, from the automotive to the mechanical industry, from the footwear to the electronic field.
