Design with TPUs and discover the formidable benefits
of this specialty thermoplastic product family :
Since their invention in the late 1940s, Thermoplastic Polyurethanes (TPU)
are being used in a wide variety of industries and markets such as Automotive,
Wire & Cable, Sporting goods, Garments, Telecommunications, Footwear and
Main product categories are Crystalline TPUs for Adhesives and Elastomers
Crystalline TPUs are Crystalline
polymers, which have been specially developed for use as raw materials in
bonding applications such as footwear, furniture automotive and others industry.
Elastomer TPUs belong to the family of materials
known as thermoplastic elastomers (TPE).They are specialty materials that
have virtually the elasticity of crosslinked elastomers (rubber) and the processability
and recyclability of thermoplastics ,covering a wide range of hardnesses.
TPUs are preferred by design engineers and processors for its superior toughness,
outstanding abrasion and tear resistance, along with its excellent resistance
to oils, solvents,fuels and chemicals and high moisture vapour transmission
In addition, unique among other TPEs, TPUs feature excellent transparency
up to 98 shore A.
They are easy to process in a wide range of equipments (Extrusion,Calendering,
Injection Moulding and Compounding).
According to various recent industry studies , world demand for TPUs should
rise up to 6%/year through 2006 with strongest gains in automotive, consumer
and sporting goods Demand is primarily driven by increased requirements for
