Medical TPE Injection Molding

Avail of high-quality medical parts and devices using TPE medical injection molding, one of the most efficient practices. It’s a no-brainer option whether you’re looking for pharmaceutical devices, laboratory tools, or testing equipment.

Medical Overmolding

TPE Overmolding prevents vibrations, shocks, and other accidental injuries. Seaskymedical utilize this process to produce sturdy and durable parts using two or more distinct materials. It’s also performed to ensure the medical molded product’s durability, electrical insulation, and chemical resistance. 

Medical Insert Molding

Insert molding and over-molding almost seem similar. The TPE plastic and metal materials are strongly bound together to form a single part in this process. Insert molding is an ideal choice to enhance the strength and reliability of the medical device component.

Medical Micro Molding

The micro-molding process fabricates tiny parts with utmost accuracy and precision. This process is one of the popular techniques in the medical, automobile, and food sectors. It even plays a crucial role while manufacturing surgical consumables and electronics.

Compression molding

In general, compression molding includes preheating the TPE material at a temperature of 350ºF with a mold pressure of 100 psi. It’s a pretty low-budget process that efficiently produces a massive production heap.

Ultrasonic Bonding

Ultrasonic bonding(Aka sonic welding) leverages sound waves at a higher frequency to fuse two or more medical device pieces into a single one. The best thing about ultrasonic bonding is its permanent adhesive factor.

What is Thermoplastic Elastomer TPE?

TPEs are compounds heated to mold into distinct shapes. Sometimes, manufacturers also refer to TPE as thermoplastic rubber or simply TPR. Thermoplastic elastomers are one of the best alternatives to natural or synthetic rubber. It’s used in various medical applications such as medical consumables, tubing, and surgical device manufacturing. 


This synthetic plastic usually melts upon heating and turns into a rigid and tougher substance on cooling. The fascinating thing about TPEs is their chemical stability despite being heated or cooled. 

Although thermoplastic elastomers are plastic polymers, they’re degradable. In the modern era, numerous bio-based TPE solutions are leveraged from sources like sugar cane, cellulose, vegetable oils, and a lot more. We develop eye-popping medica lab consumables without compromising on quality.

TPE Injection Molding

TPEs are highly flexible and have a higher tensile strength.

Thermoplastic Rubber Material boasts rubber-like elasticity and flowable elastomeric properties at high temperatures.

Since thermoplastic elastomers are pretty soft, they can be stretched to a greater degree without deforming.

The dimensional stability property is another significant property of TPE materials.

TPE vs. Silicone: Difference Between TPE And Silicone

TPEs melt upon heating. However, liquid silicone rubber doesn’t melt after being heated. In general, when silicone is crosslinked, it gains an intense mechanical strength. 


The primary differentiator between silicone and TPE is its reusability. The manufacturers can reprocess the used TPEs. Yet, it’s tricky to reprocess silicone, especially Liquid Silicone Rubber. Here are a few notable differences between Silicone and TPE material properties(Aka thermoplastic elastomer properties). 


When it comes to molecular structure, silicone takes SiO2 structure. TPE has a CC molecular structure. Silicone consists of oxygen links with the CH3 side chain, while thermoplastic elastomers boast styrene, olefins, and polyurethanes.

High Temperature

Silicone is far better than TPE in high temperatures. TPE melts or cracks at ultra high temperatures, whereas the silicone is resistant to temperature that makes it ideal for manufacturing products at higher temperatures.


The production process of TPE is pretty easy when compared to silicone. Silicone is processed and molded via vulcanization. In contrast, TPE can be produced and molded without vulcanization.


The liquid silicone rubber costs higher than the TPE. Manufacturers chose TPE molding when dealing with lower temperatures. Unlike silicone, the wastes and teeny-tiny remains of TPE can be easily recycled and reused.

Why We Use Thermoplastic Elastomer Material
For Injection Molding

Several factors should be considered to manufacture the best product. The same goes with injection molding too. One of the significant reasons to use thermoplastic elastomers is their excellent malleability. This means it can be easily molded due to its soft texture. Now, let’s dig into a few other benefits you should consider. 

The thermoplastic elastomers have the best colorability properties. And also, it can be over-molded on various polymers like Polypropylene and a lot more.

It's an ideal choice for lower temperatures because of its best impact resistance.

The TPE is chemically inert, i.e., it doesn't reach any chemicals.

It's resistant to cleaners and is highly flexible. So, the production process with TPE is a cakewalk when compared to liquid silicone rubber or TPUs.

Another reason to use TPE for injection molding is its recyclable and degradable properties. The TPE remains can be used even for multiple purposes. Meanwhile, it degrades into the soil after usage making it a more eco-friendly choice.
