Polyurethane (TPU film) 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 as well as 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
