low temp material rigid material flexible material UV exposure material

Polyurethane tubing (TPU) is a flexible, very tough, abrasion and cut resistant plastic. Can be used for tubing and profiles. It is available in natural (transparent amber cast), stock or custom colors. It is available in hardnesses from flexible to semi-rigid.

There are two types of TPUs:
Polyester based TPU – Better physical characteristics and resistant to fuels and oils.
Polyether based TPU – Better for use with water or high humidity.


ICON KEY
Selecting the best thermoplastic resin for your plastic tubing and plastic profiles requires that you first determine how it is being used, where it will be used (environment) and your cost constraints. Please feel free to contact us to further discuss your material requirements.
