TPU labels are used in our clothes. As a custom TPU label manufacturer in China, we have a good understanding of TPU materials. So what are the main characteristics of TPU? Let me explain to you.
TPU is a thermoplastic elastomer rubber. A plastic material that can repeatedly soften or change under a certain heat, but it can keep its shape unchanged at room temperature. It can play a role of support and protection.
The main characteristics of TPU material:
Wide range of hardness: By changing the ratio of each reaction component of TPU, products with different hardness can be obtained, and as the hardness increases, the products still maintain good elasticity and wear resistance.
High mechanical strength: TPU products have outstanding bearing capacity, impact resistance and shock absorption performance.
Outstanding cold resistance: The glass transition temperature of TPU is relatively low, and it still maintains good elasticity, flexibility and other physical properties at minus 35 degrees.
Good processing performance: TPU can be processed by common thermoplastic materials processing methods, such as injection molding, extrusion, calendering and so on. At the same time, TPU and certain polymer materials can be processed together to obtain polymer alloys with complementary properties. It is resistant to oil, water and mold. Good recyclability.
