There are various grades of the elastomer available, ranging from flexible grades like vulcanized rubber to semi hard grades such as low density polyethylene. Numerous grades are available with unique characteristics to suit individual applications. The thermoplastic elastomer does not require compounding or vulcanization processes like rubber. Similar to a general purpose resin, it can be molded and the natural grade can also be easily colored.
