What is Thermoplastic Amide Elastomer (TPA)?

Thermoplastic polyamide (TPA, TPE-A), also known as thermoplastic Copolyamide, comprises hard segments (polyamides) and soft segments (polyethers or polyesters). Thermoplastic Polyamides (TPA) are high performance thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) block copolymers, usually used and classed as engineering material because of their unique combination of properties: great resilience, heat and oil resistance, and high impact at low temperature. In addition, TPA can be processed by usual melt-processing techniques, such as injection molding, extrusion, blow molding.

General features of TPA:
High performance engineering TPE
Wide range of hardness
High impact

TPA Applications:
Because of their toughness over wide range of temperatures, Thermoplastic polyamide (TPA) is considered as important engineering plastics. TPA is mainly used for sport goods, automotive and industrial parts. Due to its high impact at low temperature, TPA occupies a prominent place within the ski equipment market.
