Freedom of design for casual shoes with our PU/TPU materials
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.
We offer a comprehensive range of products with a broad variety of property profiles. Find the right product for you!
