Laser welding of thermoplastic elastomers

Thermoplastic elastomers (TPE) are a group of plastics that exhibit rubber-elastic properties. Unlike the conventional, chemically wide-meshed crosslinked elastomers, their polymer chains are embedded in a thermoplastic matrix. The physical crosslinking points dissolve reversibly under the influence of heat without…

Thermoplastics for laser welding – Part 1

Due to their molecular structure and the associated thermal properties, thermoplastics have a special position among polymer materials. They are both meltable and plastically formable. This behavior enables the welding of two thermoplastic polymers. However, this requires a minimum chemical…
