Technical Properties

Tuftane Thermoplastic Polyurethane (TPU) films in general offer the following properties:

  • - Excellent wear and abrasion resistance
  • - High tensile strength
  • - Excellent resistance to fatigue
  • - Excellent resistance to tear propagation
  • - High energy absorption
  • - Very good low temperature flexibility
  • - Good resistance to oils, greases, oxygen, and ozone
  • - Recyclable

By combining other special additives with our TPU formulations we can engineer and improve the properties in many ways, such as:

  • - Flame retardancy
  • - Appearance – matt, gloss, colour matching
  • - UV resistance
  • - Touch / Feel
  • - Anti static
  • - Microbial resistance

Tuftane TPU films can be split into two distinct groups, polyether based and polyester based. Tuftane TPU films from a polyether or polyester base offer performance advantages with the following characteristics:

Polyether

  • - Elasticity
  • - Fungus resistance
  • - Low temperature flexibility
  • - Hydrolysis resistance
  • - Resistance to weak acids / alkalis

Polyester

  • - Weather resistance
  • - Abrasion resistance
  • - Strength
  • - Thermal stability
  • - Oil & Solvent resistance
