Bio-based TPU - Description
This material is the first bio-based TPU (thermoplastic polyurethane) to not compromise on high-performance when compared to traditional petroleum-based TPUs. Its outstanding mechanical, physical and chemical properties offer significant flexibility in a wide range of applications including:
- Highly flexible films
- Abrasion-resistant hoses
- Soft-touch injection moulded parts
- Special compounds
It is made up of block copolymers consisting of a sequence of polyol soft segments and hard polyurethane segments. The material bridges the gap between thermoplastics and rubbers and can be used pure, as an additive or in blends with other polymers or rubbers.
