Thermoplastic Polyurethane (TPU) is a tough, versatile elastomer which is ideal for many applications. TPU is inherently soft and generally requires no plasticizers. The hardness or softness of thermoplastic polyurethane remains relatively constant over a wide temperature range for extended periods of time. TPU is easily formed and fabricated by conventional methods and is receptive to RF welding.
For further functionality we laminate TPU and TPU blend films with other films (dual durometer), non-woven fabrics, hook receptive loop fabric, and reinforcing scrims to create new properties.
Wiman offers most unsupported TPU grades in film thicknesses from 0.006” to 0.125” (0.2 – 3.175 mm). Thermoplastic polyurethane on silicone coated release liner is available in thicknesses from 0.003” to 0.012” (0.075 – 0.305 mm).
