Thermoplastic Polyurethane (TPU)
PECOAT® Thermoplastic Polyurethane(TPU)
PECOAT® thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) products include polyester type, polyether type, polycaprolactone type, and other special functional modified types, such as hot melt TPU, foaming TPU, matte flame-retardant TPU, and customized products for customers. They are suitable for various processing techniques such as injection molding, extrusion, blow molding, calendering, hot melt, and hot pressing, and are widely used in fields such as mobile phone cases, smart watch straps, wires, films, clothing and shoe materials, seals, pipes, automobiles, and hot melt adhesives.
TPU Material for Bluetooth Headset and USB CableThis 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.
TPU Material for Cable of Charging PileThis series is suitable for extruded cable sheath applications, widely used in industries such as robot arm cables, submarine cables, charging pile cables, drag chain cables, and geophysical exploration cables.
- Polyether-based TPU: Good water resistance, low temperature flexibility, anti-microbial, anti-fungal, and low water-soluble swelling.
- Polyether-based TPU can be flame-retardant modified according to different customer needs, and halogen-free flame-retardant V0, VW-1, VW-2 can be customized. TPU performance components can also be customized, such as resistance to deformation, scratch, wear, gloss, and matte.

False OvermoldingFalse overmolding refers to the fact that TPU does not need to be fused with hard plastic or other materials through the above-mentioned fusion effect. By using a suitable overmolding structure, such as overall overmolding of the component, or by adding holes to the hard component, making some grooves on the edge of the overmolding position to enhance the bonding force between TPU and the hard component (also known as embedded injection molding).

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 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.
