The Elastolit® product range includes Elastolit® R (RIM/RRIM), Elastolit® D (rigid integral foam) and Elastolit® K (compact duromer). With a variety of properties, these polyurethane systems constitute high-quality, economic alternatives to construction materials or thermosetting materials and engineering thermoplastics.
Infinergy® is the world's first expanded thermoplastic polyurethane (E-TPU). This closed-cell particle foam can be used anywhere, where a combination of low weight, excellent mechanical properties and good long-term durability is required.
The engineering plastic Ultramid® is based on PA6 and PA66 as well as on various co-polyamides such as PA66/6. The range also includes PA610 and partially aromatic polyamides such as PA6T/6. Ultramid® is noted for its high mechanical strength, stiffness and thermal stability.
