    TPU - Epamet TPUs Bio Based thermoplastic

    Epamet TPUs - Bio Based thermoplastic

    Epamet TPUs are Bio-based thermoplastic polyurethanes made with renewable sourced material providing the same technical properties and performance of fossil based TPUs.

    In a continuous process of contributing to a better environment Epaflex Polyurethanes has developed the Epamet line with the aim of offering products which are a valid alternative to traditional petroleum based TPU. The bio-based material content can reach up to 60% in Epamet TPUs.

    The goal of significantly reduce the use of fossil-base products decreasing organic carbon content is reached with and outstanding ease of process, workability and use.

    Main benefits of Epaflex Polyurethanes Epamet family are those of traditional thermoplastic polyurethanes; superior abrasion resistance, very good chemical resistance, cold temperature flexibility, outstanding mechanical properties, wide hardness range, superior oil and grease resistance, transparency and hydrolysis resistance. These TPUs can be used either in extrusion than injection moulding machines. No specific precautions need to be taken when using Epaflex polyurethanes bio-based TPUs and they can be used in a wide range of application ranging from footwear and tecnical injection moulding to extruded hoses, tubes, belts and profiles.
