Thermoplastic Polyurethanes (TPU)

Thermoplastic polyurethanes (TPU) are elastic and melt-processable. They are used in a wide variety of industries and end markets. This content has been built to detail you the key facts about thermoplastic polyurethanes for plastics applications. It will detail you with key benefits like soft touch and breathability as well as key applications for transportation, agriculture, sport & leisure and more.

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
