Haptics, Hand, and Hardness
Haptics, hand and hardness are three descriptors of the feel of a material. While hardness is often used as a default measure for elastomers, it often provides the least information and can even be misleading. So what should you be considering?

Adhesive vs. Cohesive Bonds
Adhesion, or bondability, is key when discussing thermoplastic elastomer materials because they are often overmolded onto a rigid substrate.
