TPE (Thermoplatic Elasnomer) (80A)

TPE is a class of TPU that is a little softer than TPU. Like TPU, it is a durable flexible material as it offers weather, chemical, and water resistance. With its durability and toughness, it is a great thermoplastic that bridges the gap between plastic and rubber. It is commonly found in medical instruments, automotive parts, sporting goods, and protective cases for electronics.

It differs from TPU in that is offers lower abrasion and chemical resistance.
