Thermoplastic Polyurethane

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 Films are also available on release liners.

For tailored performances, we offer blends of TPU with other polymers:

  • TPU and MABS blends – Methyl methacrylate ABS – good low temperature properties and printability. Cut resistant. Excellent contact clarity. Used as a protective surface on outdoor sports equipment.
  • TPU and PC blends – Good clarity, improved elongation plus solvent and environmental stress resistance versus polycarbonate.
  • TPU and PETG blends – Contact clear, RF weldable

In addition to our Wiman TPU offerings, we will toll extrude your in-house formulation to film. Please talk with us about toll manufacturing.
