Exploring the Difference Between Silicone and TPE Physical Dolls
At present, the physical dolls tantaly candice in the adult products market are mainly made of three types of physical dolls: full silicone material, full TPE material, and a combination of silicone head and TPE body. In order to let everyone know more about these two material dolls, here is a comprehensive and multi-angle view. Comparative analysis of the differences between silicone dolls and TPE dolls.
Both TPE and silicone are elastomer materials, TPE is a thermoplastic elastomer material, and silicone is a thermosetting elastomer. The simplest way to distinguish silicone and TPE materials is to use the fire method. When silicone is burned with fire, white smoke is emitted, forming gray-white ash, while TPE soft rubber emits black smoke like plastic when burned, forming black oily residue. The basis of TPE material is SEBS. SEBS is the hydrogenation product of SBS. SBS is made of styrene and butadiene block copolymer. SEBS modified TPE can achieve various required softness. The hardness of TPE is mainly related to SEBS. It is related to the molecular weight, oil-filled content, PP content, etc., and can be several times lower than the Shore hardness of silicone.
TPE material has the characteristics of high strength, high resilience, injection molding processing, wide range of applications, environmental protection, non-toxic and safe, and excellent colorability. It has soft touch, weather resistance, fatigue resistance and temperature resistance, and excellent processing performance. It can be two-shot injection molded or individually molded. The doll's silicone uses addition-type platinum liquid silicone, which is mixed and stirred evenly at a ratio of 1:1 and solidified at room temperature. This silicone is non-toxic, tasteless, and resistant to aging. The molecular density of silica gel is greater than that of TPE. If you compare rubber and silica gel, you can compare TPE with a sponge. After magnifying several times, you can see that the molecular structure of TPE is like a sponge, with countless pores, while the silica gel material is denser. The advantages of high density of silicone material make it highly malleable and easy to control in terms of weight. Therefore, silicone dolls can be better than TPE in details such as body curves and skin texture. This is why silicone material has better performance than TPE material. Reasons for better anti-aging properties.
The elasticity of TPE material is unmatched by ordinary silicone. TPE material can freely arrange different densities of each part of the physical doll body, so that each part of the physical doll body has a real touch. For example, if you want the breasts to be soft, you can adjust them to be hollow when injecting the breasts, or you can use a solid structure and adjust the softness of the colloid at the same time, so that you can determine the roundness, stiffness, or fullness of the breasts of a physical doll compared to Silica gel restores better. Of course, with the development of technology, current silicone dolls can already use ultra-soft silicone with Shore C hardness to make the experience more perfect, but the cost will increase a lot.
Because the silicone material is slightly harder, the detail expression of silicone dolls is better than that of TPE soft rubber dolls tantaly eva. Some simulated hand patterns and details can only be expressed by silicone dolls, while the performance of TPE soft rubber dolls is not so good.
The same thing: they are both physical dolls and have better practicality. Difference: The main material of silicone dolls is silicone, and the main material of TPE dolls is TPE. The difference is the material, the price and the experience of using it. 1. TPE doll TPE (Thermoplastic Elastomer) is a thermoplastic elastomer material with high strength, high resilience, and can be injection molded. The average price of dolls made of TPE is between 1,000 and 3,000 yuan. Their main features are that they are relatively soft. If used properly, their lifespan is between 1 and 3 years. Advantages: The feeling of use is closer to the human body, and the tear resistance is better; Disadvantages: It is easy to produce oil, and improper use can easily lead to staining.
Silica gel, also called silicic acid gel, is a highly active adsorption material, and the treatment process is cold treatment. Silicone dolls feel harder than TPE dolls and are more expensive. The average price is more than 7,000 yuan, and the ones with better quality are more than 10,000 yuan. Service life is 1-6 years.
Advantages: The head is more realistic and the plasticity is closer to that of a real person
Disadvantages: The seams are uneven (the mold closing line is more obvious)
The advantages and disadvantages of these two materials are obvious, so there is also a third type of doll: silicone head + TPE body. This kind of doll can give full play to the advantages of both materials, and the price is moderate, between 3,000 and 6,000 yuan.
The prices of tantaly sex doll made of different materials vary greatly, you can use the above prices as a reference.
However, price is not the only criterion. It can only be said that physical dolls with daily prices (note: non-activity prices) below 700 yuan must be carefully screened and purchased with caution. Those in the above price range should also be carefully screened.
Full silicone material doll: The head and body are both made of silicone. The details of the silicone material are realistic, but the feel is relatively hard and the cost is high. The price is between 1w and 2w. Because it is relatively hard, it is only suitable for use as a hand doll. Yes, the function is to accompany you to take photos. All-TPE material doll: All-TPE material doll is relatively soft and smooth to the touch, but the details are not as good as silicone, and the cost is lower. The price is around 25,000. It is very good as an adult sex toy and is very practical (currently in the experience center The type of dolls that are more commonly used). Silicone head + PTE body solid doll: The silicone head has the authenticity of silicone material, plus the softness of TPE body, it is currently the best combination, and the price is around 4,000. The two materials look similar on the surface. TPE is not as good as silicone when it comes to smelling oil. Silicone is more suitable for making silicone head carvings of human dolls and looks more realistic.
