Popular science about sex toy materials

Adult products are very common on the market now, and there are many categories of adult products. The broad categories can be divided into male products and female products. If further subdivided, there are many types, such as vibrators, AV rods, G-spot rods, and vibrators, airplane cups, simulation molds, physical dolls, etc...

Everyone is very concerned about the materials of sex toys. What raw materials are these sex toys made of? Is it secure? Is there any harm to human body? Let’s learn about common adult product materials with youngwill.



1. TPE:


Thermoplastic elastomer, TPE has the high elasticity, high strength and high resilience of rubber, and has the characteristics of injection molding. It is environmentally friendly, safe, non-toxic and tasteless, transparent or highly transparent, relatively soft in hardness, has excellent colorability and touch. Soft, weather-resistant, fatigue-resistant and temperature-resistant, with excellent processing performance and no need for vulcanization. It can be recycled to reduce costs. It can be secondary injection molded and coated and bonded with base materials such as PP, PE, PC, PS, and ABS. , can also be formed separately.
TPE material is very close to the softness of human skin, has excellent extensibility, and is not prone to breakage. The surface of most low-hardness TPEs will feel somewhat sticky. But for TPE used in adult products, there is a special TPE formula that can ensure the dryness of the material surface, at least not sticky or oily. Many Pocket Pussy series products are made of TPE materials. It has become a trend for TPE raw materials to be used to make adult products. It has slowly replaced silicone as the main material in the adult products industry.



2. Silicone:


Silicone has good biocompatibility and is comfortable to the touch. Single molecule structure, no need to use plasticizer, silicone is hard, easy to process and shape, easy to carve shapes, no holes inside, not as soft compared to TPE, but extremely safe.
In terms of feel, silicone products have excellent toughness and elasticity, and are non-toxic and odorless products, so they are a very good choice for adult toys. At present, most massage sticks, vibrators and higher-end products usually use silicone.



3. Liquid silicone:


Improved on the basis of silicone, it greatly reduces the rubber vulcanization process. The material is more refined and more flexible and plastic than silicone. Infant products and breast enhancement fillings are all made of liquid silicone, which can be said to be the gold and silver material of sex toys. Simulation dildos usually use this kind of raw material. If it is a dildo that is too cheap, it will not be made of this material. It may be PVC or other materials, and the texture will be worse.



4. ABS:


ABS resin has high strength, good toughness, and is easy to form. It is a milky white solid and has strong resistance to acid, alkali, and salt corrosion. It is safer than PVC. It is now mostly used in the production of non-human contact surfaces such as sex toy handles and controllers. .


5. PVC:


PVC is a white powder with an amorphous structure. It has poor stability to light and heat. When exposed to sunlight for a long time, it will decompose to produce hydrogen chloride. It will further auto-catalytically decompose, causing discoloration and rapid decline in physical and mechanical properties. It must be used in practical applications. Stabilizers are added to improve stability to heat and light. Soft PVC has a poor touch and is mostly used in low-end products.
