Comparing the TPE and TPO Floor Mats
A bit confused about the differences (prices, weight, durability etc.) between our TPE / TPO floor mats? With this Blog they will be compared in more details.
Thermoplastic elastomers (TPE), sometimes referred to as thermoplastic rubbers, are a class of copolymers or a physical mix of polymers (usually a plastic and a rubber) that consist of materials with both thermoplastic and elastomeric properties, meanwhile, Thermoplastic olefin (TPO), thermoplastic polyolefin or olefinic thermoplastic elastomers refer to polymer/filler blends usually consisting of some fraction of a thermoplastic, an elastomer or rubber, and usually a filler.
In short, by feeling the floor mats, you may find that TPE is more like “rubber” and TPO is more like “plastic” due to their differences in compounding.
Both TPE and TPO floor mats from Tesla-accessoires provide excellent protection to your Tesla, and are totally harmless and environmentally friendly. However, due to the differences from compounding and pricing, TPE provides more comfortable experience while TPO is more cost-efficient.
