Thermoplastic Elastomer (TPE) v. Liquid Silicone Rubber (LSR) A Comparison Of Two Common Thermoplastic And Thermoset Materials

“Thermoplastic” and “thermoset” sound similar and both are appropriate for a wide range of applications — but that doesn’t make them interchangeable, especially when it comes to anticipated outcomes for your complex injection molding project.

Thermoplastic Elastomer (TPE) v. Liquid Silicone Rubber (LSR) is an easy-reference infographic that compares TPE (a thermoplastic) and LSR (a thermoset) to provide insights essential to making the best resin choice for your needs, including discussion about:

  • Resin category definitions
  • Moldability processes
  • Advantages and disadvantages
  • Common applications
