TPU is a highly versatile elastomer with unique properties that offer both superior performance and processing stability and consistency. TPU delivers value to product designers and end users by providing a material that can range from being as soft as rubber to as rigid as hard plastics. TPU also offers exceptional abrasion and tear resistance, high elasticity, resistance to oils and solvents, and good flexibility over a wide temperature range.
