What is Thermoplastic Polyurethanes (TPU)?

Thermoplastic Polyurethane (TPU) is a highly versatile elastomer with unique properties that offers both superior performance and processing flexibility. TPU is generalized in the category of polyurethane plastics. Technically, TPU are thermoplastic elastomers consisting of linear segmented block copolymers composed of hard and soft segments. There are numerous thermoplastic polyurethanes (TPU) in markets, vary with different composition of categories and percentages of diisocyanate (hard segments) and diols (soft segments). They can be used as a soft engineering plastic or as a replacement for hard rubber like PVC.

General features of TPU:
Excellent abrasion / wear resistance
Outstanding impact resistance
