Blending of two polymers is a possible mean to tailor their individual properties in a single material. Over the past two decades, this method has undergone an extensive growth in production. One of it is known as Thermoplastic elastomers (TPE). TPE is a combination of rubber and plastic. The material will performed processing characteristic of thermoplastics and technical properties of elastomers. Polystyrene is characterized by poor impact behaviour because of its brittle material. The incorporation of elastomer particles offers a classical solution of these problems. The incorporation of fillers in TPE produce a new class of material known as thermoplastic elastomer composites (TPE composite).
