Drop-in Solution

Elastollan® for synthetic leather can be processed using exiting PV calendering and extrusion lines. So PVC manufacturers can utilize existing calendaring and extrusion lines and ‘drop-in’ Elastollan TPU seamlessly and cost-effectively.  The drop-in solution enables flexible and efficient processing

PVC manufacturers can now diversify their portfolio to offer both PVC and high-performance TPU. This contributes to sustainable development, as more TPU can be used by PVC manufacturers for the production of synthetic leather
