Platilon®U is a high-performance technical film with flexibility over a wide temperature range, extreme elongation and very high values in tear propagation strength and abrasion resistance. It stretches and has a recovery at up to 600% elongation and has a favourable strength to weight ratio. It is hypoallergenic and free of plasticisers and also has a good microbial and hydrolysis resistance for Polyether TPUs. As it adheres well to foam it makes excellent covers for foam cushions.
It has high resistance to:
• Oils, greases and solvents.
• Abrasion and is quite elastic.
It has good resistance to:
• Weather exposure.
• High energy radiation and chemical attack, but still remains water vapour permeable which makes it ideal as an application in radiology departments.
• Many liquids while still remaining water vapour permeable.
