How to identify TPE and human silicone?

The human body silicone industry is a major application area of the ultra-soft series of TPE 0 degree materials. The TPE hardness used in this industry is usually 0~25A, and some ultra-soft TPEs with hardness lower than 0A, TPR. The appearance of the material is soft and transparent or powder mixed oil.

Molding methods are divided into injection molding and perfusion molding. TPE/TPR itself is an environmentally friendly and non-toxic thermoplastic elastomer material that does not contain plasticizers, halogens, heavy metals, carcinogens such as benzene rings and PAHS (polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons), and will not be processed. It can cause harm to the human body. TPE and TPR environmental protection materials are easy to process. They can be formed by injection molding, extrusion, salivation, blow molding and other processes. No vulcanization processing is required. The scraps can also be recycled and reused. The performance does not affect and greatly saves the company’s Cost of production.

Select the corners of the product for the slag. It is best to use a lighter to directly ignite without destroying it. If there is a black oily fluid and the smell is black, then it can be directly determined that it is not human silicone. White-grey slag and the smell of smoke is not unpleasant. The color is white, that is human body silicone!
