TPE Versus Silicone

What are the differences between TPE and silicone material? TPE is a type of thermoplastic elastomer; silicone is a type of thermoset elastomer. In the production process, silicone is harder to process and mold, but TPE is simpler. While TPE is resistant to heat and constant pressure, silicone has an advantage over TPE in high temperatures.

TPE is most affordable than silicone rubber. But silicone waste cannot be recycled, whereas TPE waste can be fully recycled. This is probably the main reason why silicone sex dolls are sometimes more expensive.

The sex dolls are either made of silicone or TPE. Both materials exhibit elastomeric characteristics and duplicate the feel of human skin. TPE material can be stretched over and over and will return to its original size. Silicone is less soft than TPE, but is much easier to clean, and not need much doll care compared to TPE. If you want the sex doll to last longer, you should consider getting a silicone one.
