Thermoplastic Polyurethane for Wires And Cables
TPU Material for Bluetooth Headset and USB Cable
This series is perfect for applications of extruder grade cable sheathing.
  • Polyester-based TPU: Good oil and chemical resistance, wear resistance, and with the addition of special anti-hydrolysis agents, it has certain hydrolysis resistance and stability. Highly transparent and resistant to yellowing, easy to process.
  • It is widely used in elastic lines, data cables, headphone cables, and consumer electronics cables.
Thermoplastic Polyurethane for Smart Wearable Device Intelligent wearables, also known as wearable devices, are a general term for wearable devices designed and developed for intelligent daily wear using wearable technology, such as glasses, gloves, watches, wristbands, clothing, shoes, and hats. With the development of society and technology, intelligent wearables are increasingly integrated into people’s daily lives.

Thermoplastic Polyurethane for Shoes and Clothing Accessories Thermoplastic Polyurethane (TPU) has been widely used in clothing, apparel, and shoe materials due to its environmental protection, wear resistance, good elasticity, comfortable feel, and good breathability. The characteristics of the product include excellent elasticity, wear resistance, cold resistance, high transparency, resistance to yellowing, resistance to bacterial growth, and environmental friendliness for recycling.

Clothing Applications:

  • Zipper strips: environmentally friendly and non-toxic zipper strips produced with TPU have a comfortable feel and good elasticity.
  • Women’s shoulder straps: shoulder straps produced with TPU are environmentally friendly and non-toxic, with good elasticity and not easily broken.
Thermoplastic Polyurethane for Mobilephone Case With the rapid development of the mobile phone industry, phone cases have gradually become popular in people’s lives. Due to their good light transmittance and wear resistance, they are widely used in various types of protective cases. PECOAT® Thermoplastic Polyurethane (TPU) material features high transparency, with anti-hydrolysis stability and special UV protection performance. It has excellent encapsulation performance and can be used for the molding of transparent injection products with a wall thickness of up to 6mm, with good precision control.
TPU overmolding injection mold As the name suggests, TPU overmolding is the process of overmolding TPU pellets onto other materials. The general processing methods for TPU overmolding are one-time molding with a two-color injection molding machine, or two-stage injection molding with an overmolding mold using a regular injection molding machine.   Overmolding is one of the most important molding methods or applications for TPU. Through overmolding, various functional characteristics of TPU materials can be fully demonstrated, such as soft touch (such as handle equipment), slip resistance (wheel, cup mat, non-slip mat, foot pad), sound, mouse, digital equipment, electronic instruments, and other special functions (such as foldable kitchen utensils and daily necessities), etc.   There are two different overmolding mechanisms, commonly known as true overmolding and false overmolding, depending on the overmolding structure of different products and the desired overmolding effect. True overmolding refers to the material fusion of the bonding surface (the position that needs to be overmolded) between soft TPU and hard plastic. << Read More >>
Thermoplastic polyurethane elastomer FOR Industrial Engineering Thermoplastic polyurethane elastomer is a new type of polymer material between rubber and resin, which is known as the fifth emerging material. It can not only replace some rubber, but also modify plastics to achieve corresponding functions. It is widely used in the rubber industry to manufacture various industrial products and equipment components such as seals, shock absorbers, rubber hoses, rubber tapes, rubber strips, rubber plates, rubber parts, and adhesives. At the same time, thermoplastic polyurethane elastomer can also replace rubber in large quantities for modification of general thermoplastic resins such as PVC, PE, PP, PS, and even engineering plastics such as PU, PA, and CA, which has created a new situation in the plastics industry and has new material characteristics.
Product Characteristics:
  • Excellent wear resistance, oil/solvent resistance, low temperature flex resistance, high pressure resistance, bending resistance, and good antibacterial properties.
  • Fast molding, easy processing, polyester type, oil and grease resistance, resistance to various chemical solvents, good UV resistance, and meets EU environmental protection requirements.
  • Good low temperature flexibility, strong water resistance, good product feel, good elasticity, resistance to yellowing, good antibacterial properties, no sticking to molds, and good transparency.
Application of TPU in the automotive industry and automotive components
Application of TPU in the automotive industry and automotive components:
  • Automotive dust covers: Automotive dust covers produced with TPU have better mechanical performance and oil resistance compared to traditional rubber dust covers. Therefore, they have been widely used by many automotive manufacturers.
  • Automotive wire harnesses: Automotive wire harness products produced with TPU have extremely high mechanical performance, excellent oil resistance, and good heat resistance.
  • Automotive seals: Automotive seals and gaskets produced with TPU have excellent mechanical performance, as well as good heat resistance and oil resistance.
  • Automotive anti-skid chains: TPU film has better wear resistance than many other common polymers, with a wear resistance of more than five times that of natural rubber. Therefore, TPU material can be given priority in product selection.
TPU Modified

TPU has excellent performance and a wide range of applications, but due to its different structure, there are still shortcomings. Therefore, it is necessary to consider whether the various performance requirements of TPU meet the requirements of different application, and it is necessary to modify TPU during production and application.

TPU Modified refers to the addition of small molecule inorganic or organic substances to the polymer, which can be achieved through physical or chemical effects, so as to give it mechanical processing performance or improve its certain properties, thus making TPU materials have distinctive characteristics in some aspects.
