Thermoplastic Polyurethane (TPU)
TPU are elastic and melt-processable thermoplastic elastomers. Thermoplastic Polyurethane can be processed easily via conventional processing methods like injection molding, extrusion, etc. Since their invention in the late 1940s, thermoplastic elastomer polyurethane (TPU) are being used in a wide variety of industries and markets such as automotive, wires and cables, films, footwear, etc.
TPU provides a large number of physical and chemical property combinations for the most demanding applications among which are:
- Breathable films for leisure, sports and textile coatings,
- Aliphatic TPUs for weatherable, non yellowing and transparent films,
- Environmentally friendly eco-TPU made from renewable sources
