Thermoplastic polyurethane-TPU

Thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) is an elastomer that is fully thermoplastic. Like all thermoplastic elastomers, TPU is elastic and melt-processable. Further, it can be processed on extrusion as well as injection, blow and compression molding equipment. It can be vacuum-formed or solution-coated and is well suited for a wide variety of fabrication methodologies.

TPU is the ideal polymer for applications in a wide variety of markets, including footwear, adhesives and specialty molding. TPU has been providing benefits to designers, manufacturers and end users for over 50 years.

 

Description

TPU grades are suitable for an extensive range of industries like;

Electrical / Electronic

Furniture

Construction

Home appliances

Sports and leisure

Garden and power tools

Safety equipment i

Medical

Under normal conditions TPU is not a toxic and hazardous material. During processing, necessary preventive actions should be held in case of contact with polymer melt or inhalation of the gases. Processing temperatures above 240 °C should be avoided. Detailed safety information can be found in our material safety data sheets (MSDS).
