Today I want to explain about the materials that we use in our dolls that make them such great simulations. When choosing a sex doll it is very important to pay attention to the details; materials, the realistic looks, and the type of use one intends to engage in with a sex doll.

Why  are they called phsical dolls? As with the human body(made of bones, tissue and muscles, etc),our dolls also have an inner skeleton,movable joints and life like skin… bones made of hollow tubes with metal joints and life like skin commonly know as silicone. The muscle sections are made of silicone and TPE materials; giving a more life touch when grabbed or caressed.

TPE and silicone are 2 materials that are simular in properties; both are close to the touch of human skin,strong plasticity, and stable properties. They are a part of the elastomer class of material used in medical, food,civil and aerospace, and various other fields.

The price of silicone sex dolls on the market is around $2,000, while the price of TPE sex dolls is only a few hundred dollars, which means there are still many differences between the two. The difference between silicone and high quality TPE is not particularly large in terms of raw material prices, the difference is mainly process, labor cost issues and production costs.

Thermoplastic Elastomer TPE (Thermoplastic Elastomer) is a kind of rubber with high elasticity, high strength, high resilience, but also has the characteristics of injection molding process, with environmental protection and non-toxic safety, a wide range of hardness, excellent coloring, soft touch, weather resistance, fatigue resistance and temperature resistance, excellent processing performance, without vulcanization, can be recycled to reduce costs, both secondary injection molding, environmental protection and non-toxic safety, with excellent coloring. 80% of the world’s adult manufacturers’ sex toys are now made of Tpe.

TPE and silicone are both elastomer, but TPE has thermoplastic and does not need to go through the vulcanization process, and has the physical and mechanical properties of vulcanized rubber, can be said to be a combination of plastic and rubber advantages, so TPE can do several times less than the Shore hardness of silicone, silicone itself is much softer than TPE, so TPE injection molding can freely arrange the density of the doll’s body parts, the lower the density of the softer, the higher the density of the more elastic, TPE has a higher degree of stretch and high resilience than silicone, the degree of extension can reach 400%, TPE doll can make movements far greater than silicone doll, such as legs can be attached to the chest, folded almost 180 degrees, and will not tear. But please remember that neither TPE nor silicone can be pulled for long periods of time, otherwise they will break.

The main component of silica gel is silicon dioxide, chemically stable, has strong adsorption capacity, good biocompatibility, non-irritating to human tissues, non-toxic, non-allergic reactions; has good physical and chemical properties, can maintain its original elasticity and softness in contact with gas and liquid, non-degradable, is a fairly stable inert material, can withstand high temperatures, can be disinfected, convenient processing and molding, smooth hand. Silicone hardness is adjustable 0 degrees softest, 20 degrees hardest, and can be adjusted by adding silicone oil.

The market silicone sex dolls belong to the high-end dolls, due to the heat resistance, stability is higher than tpe dolls, life is much higher than tpe dolls, silicone production process is much more complex, silicone dolls body material no tpe soft. The most important thing is that you have to be able to get the most out of the dolls, and you have to be able to get the most out of the dolls, and you have to be able to get the most out of the dolls. Tpe is easy to be dyed by dark clothing, especially black and dark blue, tpe oil output will be much larger, easy to adhere to dust hairs and so on, need to shower and powder, maintenance is a lot of trouble. But now new technology has emerged to make TPE sex dolls less oily.

To sum up, Tpe sex dolls: soft material, tear resistance, good elasticity, easy to dye, easy to change shape, easy to oil, moderate life span, slightly inferior in terms of body details and makeup painting, unable to implant hair, eyelash implant, material matte, relatively cheap price. Silicone sex doll: soft material, ductility is slightly inferior to TPE, not easy to dye, not easy to oil out, not easy to deform, long life, body curve and skin texture and other details of good performance, can be painted, hair transplant, eyelash transplant, shiny material, price is relatively high. Personal advice, newbies can get their hands on TPE sex dolls, after all, they are cheap.
