BASF at Fakuma 2021: Bio-based TPU in focus
Together with customers and partners, BASF has set itself the goal to contribute to a circular economy in which raw materials are conserved, plastic waste is reduced and materials can develop their full potential during use.
At Fakuma 2021, the company will highlight amongst other materials Elastollan N TPU, a bio-based thermoplastic polyurethane, which is said to have the same performance profile as equivalent fossil-based Elastollan grades. The grade with renewable raw materials also boasts good mechanical properties such as excellent tensile strength and elongation combined with high UV and ageing resistance.
The bio-based TPU can be used in the established application areas of Elastollan, such as cable sheathing, films and conveyor belts but also in many injection-moulding applications in the automotive and E & E industries.
