In the past, the materials of toy car wheels were mostly rubber, which had excellent tensile and tear strength, good resistance. However, the rubber needs to be vulcanized, the processing cycle time is too long, and waste materials are difficult to be recycled.
In recent years, TPE began to be widely used in all kinds of toy car wheels, most of the toy car wheels do not have high requirements for load-bearing. Compared with rubber, TPE also has excellent wear resistance, tensile strength, cushioning, and shock absorption, and has thermal plasticity. It can be directly injection mold without vulcanization, greatly reducing the production cycle. Moreover, TPE is environmentally friendly and non-toxic, which is more recognized by toy end consumers.
