Thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) is a flexible thermoplastic material that offers abrasion resistance, chemical resistance, impact strength, and overall toughness.

Our injection molding service offers two grades of TPU:

Texin 245D Texin 983A
  • Excellent fuel and oil resistance
  • FDA Food-Contact
  • FDA Food-Contact
  • Excellent hydrolytic stability
