TPU (thermoplastic polyurethane) is a thermoplastic elastomer based on polyurethane.
If you need a material that is highly abrasion-resistant and oil-resistant, TPU is a good choice.
TPU is a commonly used material for applications in hydraulics and pneumatics. This is due not only to its excellent resistance to mineral oils and greases, but also to its very good mechanical properties.
Above all, the tensile properties of TPU are particularly suitable for applications under high stress. Since it also has very good wear properties, TPU is the standard for semi-dynamic and dynamic seals.
Since TPU can be processed cost-effectively through injection moulding technology, TPU offers distinct advantages over thermoset elastomers.
TPU is available from approx. 60 Shore A.
