In a world where the bottom line is all that matters, the entire team at PolymaxTPE goes out of their way to be approachable – when you need us, we will be there – all while developing better solutions faster.
While we understand what makes us the perfect choice to deliver the best thermoplastic elastomer solutions, we want to answer the frequently asked questions we receive to help make your decision process easy.
What are Polymax’s areas of expertise?
At PolymaxTPE, we are experts in thermoplastic elastomer technologies. With our widely accredited technical service team and our experienced sales staff, we help customers identify the best products to meet their performance and manufacturing goals economically.
With every solution that we deliver, it begins with us carefully listening to our customers to understand their specific requirements and the unique objectives needed for their application. Using this information, we find a tailored TPE solution to satisfy the exact needs of the application.
Whether the solution is an already developed TPE formulation or a new, customized formulation, PolymaxTPE works hard to provide the customer with the best combination of physical properties and optimized processing characteristics within their financial targets.
When working with PolymaxTPE, what does the process look like?
From the first conversation at PolymaxTPE, a personal representative will serve as your single-source contact for your project.
At the beginning of our process, we will discuss your project objectives, including any relevant benchmarks that need to be met along the way.
This model holds true for a simple “just a quote” project or ones that will require the creation of new materials that involve production ramp-ups to full commercialization.
Like every material solution we offer, we can customize our business process to fit what works best for you. From the simplest to the most complex projects, the customer can decide the support level desired to reach their business objectives.
Which TPE product is right for my application?
This question can be challenging to answer, as it depends on the performance demands of the material. For many customers, the TPE product that is right for an application is the one to their specific needs/objects and not an over-engineered or under-performing product.
At PolymaxTPE, we provide customers with peace of mind, as we are a supplier that is as interested as you are in getting the right material that fits with your program. Our team will never try to force-fit a standard line product to the customer. Instead, we prefer to get a better understanding of what the customer is trying to do. Then we are more equipped to provide the ideal product for their specific end-product and manufacturing process.

Can PolymaxTPE create a custom solution for my application?
Absolutely! Our detailed screening process is designed to provide our technicians with all the information they need to find a suitable formula, which may require just modifying our standard products to meet the demanding environments that your application requires or developing innovative new formulations that can exceed expectations.
With a deep product line and close to 10,000 existing formulas in our database, it is probable that the perfect material solution has already been developed. However, if your application does require a customized solution, our development team is ready to take action.
At PolymaxTPE, we are driven by our motto, “Creating Better Solutions Faster”. Many consumers think that customization comes with high customized prices. However, the most common comment we receive from our customers is how they appreciate PolymaxTPE for providing a tailored TPE solution without the constricting price premium that other custom TPE providers charge.
