      Thermoplastic Polyurethane

    Think, create, Elastollan®

      Elastollan® is the brand name for thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) from BASF. Over the last few decades, the numerous benefits of Elastollan® in all its forms – aromatic or aliphatic, very soft or glass fiber-reinforced, flame retardant or highly transparent – have been clearly demonstrated across every sector of industry.

    Benefits
    Key Advantages of Elastollan®
    High wear and abrasion resistance
    High tensile strength and excellent tear resistance
    High resistance against oils, greases, oxygen, and ozone
    Very good low-temperature flexibility
    Very good damping capacity
    Elastollan®, tpu, granulate, black, transparent

      Elastollan®

      Elastollan® is the brand name for thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) from BASF. It stands for maximum reliability, consistent product quality and cost efficiency. Elastollan® can be extruded into hoses, cable sheathing, belts, films and profiles, and can also be processed using blow molding and injection molding technologies. 

      This extensive product portfolio, which makes use of a variety of raw materials and formulations, is the starting point for successfully bringing innovative customer projects to fruition.

    Material Properties

      Elastollan® features an extraordinary property profile combining elasticity with resistance over a wide range of temperatures. It is abrasion- and impact-resistant, has a good elastic recovery, is tear and kink-resistant as well as oil- and grease-resistant. Moreover, Elastollan® can be modified for specific applications, by glass-fiber reinforcement, for instance.
