- Chemical and UV resistance: TPU resists the effects of various chemicals, oils, and UV radiation, ensuring long-lasting performance in challenging environments.
- Versatile processing: TPU can be processed using a variety of methods, including injection molding, extrusion, blow molding meltblown and calender coating, depending on different applications and designs.
- Wide range of hardness: TPU materials can be formulated to achieve a broad range of hardness levels, from soft and flexible to rigid and tough, providing flexibility in product design.
Why choose high-performance TPU resins
Manufacturing Processes of TPU
How to reduce the carbon footprint with TPU?
Bio-circular solutions (Desmopan® CQ MBC): Bio-circular is about mixing fossil and renewable, recycled or waste based feedstock in existing manufacturing systems while keeping track of their quantities through detailed verified bookkeeping and allocate them to specific end products.
Recycling solutions (Desmopan® CQ RC): Recycled products are made from secondary raw materials that have already gone through a product cycle and have been processed by specific procedures.
Bio-based solutions (Desmopan® CQ EC): Bio-based raw materials originate from plant, animal or algae biomass. In the case of TPU we use for example starch / industrial corn.
* Bio-based content as determined according to ASTM-D6866
All our solutions that carry the suffix “CQ”, derived from Circular Intelligence Quotient are living proof of our CE vision becoming reality: By using renewable and alternative raw materials such as feedstocks from waste or biomass – either segregated or mass-balanced feedstocks – as well as energy sources and unique chemical recycling technologies, we showcase our Circular Intelligence, offering different possibilities to reduce the carbon footprint.
