Types of Material
TPE stands for Thermoplastic Elastomer. Due to their design and manufacturing flexibility, thermoplastic elastomers (TPEs) are among the most versatile plastics on the market. TPE combine the processing advantages of thermoplastics with the performance properties of elastomers. View TPE Sex Dolls.
The main characteristic of TPE:
Easily mouldable, perfect for sex dolls.
Easily used in injection moulding, creating lifelike sex doll parts.
Feels most like human skin.
Very stretchy and elastic, making skin more realistic.
Bouncy and allows for sex dolls to have that realistic jiggle.
One of the most widely used materials for sex toys.
Can be found in everyday items such as spoons for babies and dental guards.
Has no strong chemical odour and is body-safe.
TPE is often considerably cheaper than Silicone.
THE DOWNSIDE OF TPE:
Can break down after long-term wear and tear.
Stains easily (especially when in contact with coloured material)
It is porous, having microscopic pores that can absorb oils, dirt and bacteria.
Thorough cleaning is a must to avoid staining and bacteria build-up.
Should be powdered regularly to keep it soft and supple.
Can deform and melt in high heat.
Silicone is thermoset polymer, so unlike the thermoplastic of TPE they cool to a more hardened state. Although some softness and a decent amount of flexibility can be achieved they’re never quite as soft as the best TPE. Silicone isn’t as easy to manufacture and mould like TPE. It requires vulcanization and is a lot more difficult to work with, meaning that silicone costs more. View Silicone Dolls.
The characteristic of silicone:
It is hypoallergenic and allergy safe.
Its non-porous, making it extremely smooth and silky.
It is firmer to the touch and therefore has more refined details.
It can be moulded to be extremely lifelike, especially in facial features.
It has no chemical odor and is body-safe.
You’ll find this grade of silicone used in high-quality cooking utensils, medical devices, and implants used for various types of plastic surgery.
Silicone can be cleansed and sanitized easily.
Silicone is stronger and more durable.
Silicone is a “thermoset”, meaning it cannot be reshaped with high heat.
THE DOWNSIDE TO SILICONE
Silicone of this grade is more expensive.
It can dry out and crack with aging and improper care.
Fragile areas can tear.
Silicone has less bounce or “wiggle” than TPE.
Oil and silicone-based lubricants and moisturizing products can damage the silicone
Our Fusion Sex Dolls are created with a mixture of medical-grade silicone and TPE, giving you the best of both worlds. The Fusion Sex Dolls have heads made of silicone, so you get extremely lifelike facial features with a less porous material. The bodies are made from TPE so you enjoy the real feel of human-like skin. In addition, the TPE body parts bounce, “jiggle” and move more naturally. Our Fusion Sex Dolls also feature:
6 unique skin tones (depending on the brand).
Implanted hair, rather than wigs.
Stunningly realistic facial features.
Incredibly lifelike bodies that feel like real skin and “jiggle” like human body parts.
