From one brand to another, the touch may be different, more or less soft or smooth. If you want to compare several TPEs from different brands before committing, the TPE sample is ideal.
TPE to Repair Your Doll
For most repairs, you will need pieces of TPE of the brand and color of your doll for a better result. If your doll has a gap or hole, there is missing material, no glue will help. If her intimate parts are torn, glue is not necessarily ideal, using TPE as a binder in the tear is more effective, durable and less dangerous than applying glue.

Hole or Breach
With a precise soldering iron, melt TPE into the gap to fill it. The TPE begins to melt between 120 and 130°C, it turns into an oily cream comparable to candle wax. Melt very small pieces of TPE saturated with paraffin oil, while guiding it into the gap. You fill in the smallest holes and give your doll a strong and long-lasting elasticity.
TPE for Testing Clothing
Don’t take the risk of staining your doll with a dark-coloured outfit or in an unsuitable material. Testing every questionable piece of clothing your doll will wear is key to keeping her skin looking beautiful as it did on her first day. Check out our FAQs for more information about the precautions to take to preserve her TPE. You can do dozens of tests with a single sample by cutting it into thin slices.
How do I test an outfit with a TPE sample?
Cut a thin slice of TPE with a scalpel or cutter, place the slice of TPE on the area of the garment you want to test. Compress the slice with a minimum weight of 5 kg for 24 hours. If the TPE slice is blank, this part of the outfit will not stain your doll.
Always be careful with dark and/or tight clothing, even if you test positive. Cushions, bed sheets, sofas can also stain your doll’s TPE, test each part that will be in contact with her skin.
