Outstanding and Individual Casual Shoes and Soles Made of Our PU and TPU
We at BASF understand the end consumer market as well as your business. For more than fourty years, we have been developing, producing, and selling the tailor-made high-performance footwear materials PU and TPU. Compared to other materials our PU and TPU have clear advantages: better long-term flexibility, better tear strength, better resistance to puncture, better hydrolysis-resistance, better flexibility over broad temperature scales and greater design flexibility. They can be produced in any color using color pastes or masterbatches. Multi-colored soles are also possible. And not to forget: we offer a material which sounds like wood, feels like wood and looks like wood.
Elastopan® and Elastollan® bind well both without any auxiliary agent or pre-treatment. Processing of Elastollan® and Elastopan® is uncomplicated. This reduces the costs, making the production of assembly units more economic.
