Thermoplastic Polyurethane (TPU) is a versatile, amorphous resin available in a several different background chemistries. Polyester-based TPU is highly resilient to shear, abrasion, and chemicals, while Polyether-based TPU is highly resilient to microbials and low temperatures. Both polyester and polyether TPUs are highly elastic, translucent, and resistant to oil, grease and abrasive wear. Due to its unique property set, TPU is commonly used in the injection molding and extrusion applications within the footware, automotive, electrical, and medical industries.
ResMart stocks a wide varierty of both polyether and polyester TPUs that span the hardness spectrum. We can also help you get a tailor-made TPU product should our stock portfolio product not meet your exact needs. Contact us to learn more!
