As a result of the entertainment variety show "Running Brothers", the game successfully brought the fingerboards under fire. Many people use the finger pressure plate for indoor and outdoor fitness massage or game entertainment. The massage effect of the finger pressure plate mainly comes from the many protruding structures with different sizes and shapes on the surface. The soles of the feet are in contact with the surface, using human gravity to exert pressure on nerve endings and points. With the rise of the health industry, there will naturally be development driven by demand. Since the pressure plate is so recognized by the market, what raw materials does it use? After Xiaobian market research, it was found that almost 95% of the finger pressure plates are made of thermoplastic elastomer TPE as raw materials. You may ask, what is TPE ? Why does TPE use TPE as raw material?
TPE finger pressure plate
I. What is TPE
TPE, full name Thermo-Plastic Elastomer. Chinese means thermoplastic elastomer. According to a broad understanding, TPE includes a variety of different polymerized monomers (polymerized TPE) or different blended substrates (blended TPE), such as TPES, TPU, TPO.TPV, TPEE, TPAE, TPSIV, and so on. However, TPE is generally referred to as a TPES elastomer based on SBC styrene elastomer blend modification, which is also commonly referred to as TPE.
2. Four reasons for using TPE as raw materials for fingerboards
1. Environmentally friendly and non-toxic
When people choose fitness equipment, they first pay attention to the environmental protection and safety of the product. The TPE used for the fingerboard is an environmentally safe and food-grade non-toxic material. Compliant with SGS third-party testing, such as ROHS, REACH (SVHC), no plasticizers (o-benzenes), no bisphenol A, no PAHs. Good contact with the skin, no allergies and side effects, in line with Skin contact ISO10993 related tests.
2. Suitable hardness and physical properties
The raw materials required for fingerboards have certain requirements for the hardness and strength of the materials. The material is too hard, it hurts too much when you step on it, and there is no soft feeling when you touch it. Too soft to massage meridian points. Generally, TPE with a hardness of 80 ~ 90A is used. Most thermoplastics are too hard, and the hardness of TPE can be adjusted according to requirements (0 ~ 100A). In terms of physical properties, SPE elastomer-modified TPE has excellent flexibility and tear resistance. Cracking, and also has good anti-slip properties.
3. Low temperature toughness
TPE material means that the pressure plate still maintains toughness and elasticity at -50 ° C, so as not to become hard and brittle. Superior to PVC.
4. Good processing and recycling
TPE is a thermoplastic material, which can be quickly injection-molded and extruded. The nozzle and scrap are 100% recycled. Superior to silicone and vulcanized rubber.
