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.
TPU grades are suitable for an extensive range of industries like;
Electrical / Electronic
Sports and leisure
Garden and power tools
Safety equipment i
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).
TPU products are consisting of the most diverse characteristics with different modifiers, stabilizers, special additives and customized colors as;
Glass fiber reinforced
Mineral filled and reinforced
