A multitude of applications exist within recreational pursuits for our Tuftane TPU film technology. The durability, strength, permeability, light weight, drapability, and aesthetic performance of the film means that it is used in the most demanding applications where performance is critical, but also the most simple solutions where cost and reliability are the most important factors.
Diving Vests (Stab Jackets) utilise Tuftane TPU film within a nylon fabric . Features of the film include low temperature flexibility, excellent puncture resistance, high resistance to hydrolysis and microbiological attack. Tuftane TPU are plasticiser free.
For similar reasons leading edge inflatable (LEI) kites use Tuftane TPU film as the inflatable bladders to provide structure, and flotation when being used for kitesurfing.
Dehydration bladders utilising the same properties from Tuftane TPU films are a similar application.
Expensive electronic equipment and / or safety critical equipment such as maps, first aid kits, cameras, phones need to be kept dry at all times.
Tough clear flexible materials are required and Tuftane TPU films meet all the requirements.
Inflatable boats, zorb balls, bouncy castles and air matresses all benefit from the elasticity, puncture resistance, low permeability and hydrolysis resistance of Tuftane TPU films
