What is bluthane™ TPU Film?
bluthane™ TPU films are high performance blown films in the thickness range of 30 microns to 200 microns ( 0.03 mm – 0.2 mm ) manufactured from virgin thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) granules.
What is TPU?
TPU is a high performance versatile engineering polymer, an elastomer, because of it’s flexibility combined with toughness, and bridges the gap between thermoset rubber and plastic. It is manufactured by the addition polymerization involving a long chain linear polyol, a diisocyanate and a short chain diol by batch or a continuous process using highly advancedreaction polymerization technique.
Why a TPU?
TPU is a fully reacted thermoplastic and can be processed by extrusion, injection molding and by blow molding process. Some grades are soluble in polar solvents and are used in coating and adhesives. Unlike most other thermoplastic polymer films, they can be made with minimum functional and processing additives and more importantly do not require a plasticizer like vinyls. Therefore no danger of leaching and loss of film properties, and have outstanding abrasion resistance , long-term flexibility and shelf life.
