Apilon 52

APILON 52 are urethane-based thermoplastic elastomers (TPE-U or TPU).
They stand out for their excellent physical-mechanical characteristics which make them unique for their toughness, abrasion resistance, flexibility and elasticity at a range of working temperatures.
APILON 52 includes soft and rigid grades (ester-, ether-, and hybrid ester-ether-based); special polycarbonate-based grades and also original compounds which offer enhanced compatibility with both polar and non-polar polymers; the latter are particularly well-suited for overmoulding and co-extrusion.
