We are recognized for our use of thermoplastic elastomers (TPE), with a particularly extensive know-how for TPU polyurethanes.
This know-how applies to almost all thermoplastics available on the market. We are able to design and produce bi-material parts to ensure the best possible technical-economic compromise (PA-TPU combination for example).
This technical material has been the subject of numerous developments. We work on a wide range of hardness (from 75°SH A to 60°SH D) as well as a particularly wide spectrum of temperatures (starting from -50°C to + 150°C depending on the mixes). All of the TPU blends we use have excellent hydrolysis resistance and their properties can often be adapted to requirements by the addition of additives.
TPUs are colorable and recyclable. Even if mechanically, they are comparable to elastomers, they are economical to use because their production cycles are shorter and the price of the material has remained stable.
They are resistant to oxygen, ozone, UV rays, fuels, oils, some solvents and gases. They do not work well with strong bases or strong acids. We always work in collaboration with our customers to validate the best compound.
