Thermoplastic Polyurethane (TPU) is elastic and melt-processable and can be colored through various processes. It is an extremely flexible material that is adaptable to many applications. TPUs are linear segmented block co-polymers composed of hard and soft segments. The soft segment can be either a polyether or polyester type, depending upon the application. Its range of physical properties enables TPU to be used as both a hard rubber and a soft engineering thermoplastic.
Semper-Flexx98 is a Polyester-based TPU with a 98 Shore A hardness, highly crystalline with low warpage and shrinkage, high transparency, excellent for applications that require good compression or are exposed to compressive loading.
