Overview of Thermoplastic TPU Material
Thermoplastic TPU Material, also known as polyurethane thermoplastic elastomer (thermoplastic polyurethane elastomer) is a polyurethane elastomer (polyurethane elastomer)
One of them, not only has the high elasticity of rubber, but also has the thermoplasticity of linear polymer materials. It is the first thermoplastic elastomer material discovered and used in industrial production.
Thermoplastic polyurethane rubber (TPU) ---- overview and advantages
The common TPU is made of 4,4-diphenylmethane diisocyanate, toluene diisocyanate (toluene diisocyanate, TDI), macromolecular polyol and chain extender.
molecular material. Its molecular structure is composed of hard segments obtained by reacting NDI or TDI with chain extenders and soft segments obtained by reacting MDI or TDI with macromolecular polyols.
TPU is a type of polyurethane that can be plasticized by heating and can be dissolved in solvents. Its molecules are basically linear and have no or very little chemical crosslinking. There are many hydrogen bonds between linear polyurethane molecular chains
The physical crosslinking and hydrogen bonds strengthen its shape, thus endowing it with many excellent properties, such as high modulus and high strength; excellent wear resistance, which is 2 to 10 times that of natural rubber. water resistant
Excellent performance, oil resistance and chemical resistance. High impact resistance, fatigue resistance and vibration resistance, suitable for high frequency flexing applications. Good low temperature resistance, low temperature embrittlement temperature is about -30°C or below -70C. good
Good biocompatibility and anticoagulant properties. In addition, this type of material also has excellent electrical insulation, mold resistance and UV stability. These good properties make TPU widely used in shoe materials,
Cables, clothing, automobiles, medical and health care, pipes, films and sheets, and many other fields. Because it is basically a linear structure polymer, TPU can be masticated, mixed and vulcanized like ordinary rubber.
Process molding can also be processed with the same technology and equipment as thermoplastics, such as injection molding, extrusion, blow molding, calendering, etc., especially suitable for medium and small scale parts produced in large quantities. waste
Materials can be recycled and reused, and different additives or fillers can be used in production or processing to improve certain physical properties and reduce costs.
