Depending upon the grade selected, thermoplastic polyurethanes are:

  • tough and durable -- unparalleled with their abrasion resistance
  • well suited for both soft and rigid applications
  • lightweight, especially as a metal replacement
  • provided with good elasticity properties
  • offer good color stability with UV additives
  • formulated for applications calling for good-to-excellent transparency
  • recyclable
  • available in a wide range of hardnesses, from 50 Shore A to 74 Shore D
  • excellent for low temperature flexibility and fatigue resistance
  • cut and tear resistant
  • hydrolytically stable and naturally antimicrobial
  • excellent for adhering to many different substrates (by overmolding)
  • oil, grease, fuel, solvent and chemical resistant
  • resistant to creep in load bearing applications
  • available in polyester and polyether chemistries
  • available in halogen and non-halogen FR (fire retardant) grades
  • easy to process -- depending on the grade, can be injection molded, extruded, blow molded, calendared, slush molded or thermoformed
