Thermoplastic Polyurethanes (TPU) are unique products with different properties that are interesting for a great variety of applications:

  • High resistance against washing and cleaning methods (textile applications)
  • High elasticity within complete hardnesses range
  • Good resistance against oils, fats and many solvents
  • Free of plasticizers
  • […]

Therefore TPU finds utilization in many areas such as textile, sport- and leisure industry, military, medical or automotive.

The product series ROWALIT® 500 usually covers a melting range of 55-145°C.
