Infinergy® ‒ 小颗粒，大潜力
Infinergy® 是全球首款发泡热塑性聚氨酯 (E-TPU)。闭孔弹性颗粒泡沫完美结合了 TPU 材料的特性和泡沫的优点，使产品轻巧又富有弹性。
弹性颗粒泡沫 Infinergy® 重量轻、机械性能优越并且经久耐用，可以应用在任何地方。Infinergy® 面板可在标准纵切机、模具切割机和水刀切割机上进行加工。
与原材料 TPU 一样，Infinergy® 具备较高的断裂伸长率、拉伸强度和耐磨性能，且拥有良好的耐化学性。同时，该新型颗粒泡沫在各类温度环境中都能保持优异的弹性和柔软度。
Infinergy® 拥有令人惊叹的高回弹性。根据 ISO 8307（球回跳测试）和 DIN 53512（使用定义摆锤）进行的回弹性测试显示，Infinergy® 的回弹率超过 55％，明显高于同类颗粒泡沫，如发泡聚丙烯 (EPP)，其回弹性为30％；乙烯乙酸乙烯酯 (EVA)，其回弹性为 37％；或发泡聚乙烯 (EPE)，其回弹性为 50％。即使在连续负载的情况下，Infinergy® 依然能够保持其出色的回弹性。
根据动态力学分析显示，即使在 -20℃ (-4 ℉) 的极低温度环境下，Infinergy® 的动态模量仍然较低，还因其柔软和拉伸性能而不易变硬。
-->动态力学分析：Infinergy® 在 -20℃ 条件下依然保持出色回弹性。
In principle, Infinergy® can be processed on the same molding machines which are designed for processing of expanded polypropylene (EPP). A steam chamber pressure of at least 5 bar is necessary. During processing, the steam pressures are usually in the range of 1.6 to 2.2 bar, depending on the geometry and density of the molding. Both crack splitting and pressure filling are possible methods that can be applied here. Appropriate injection systems should be used.
In addition, because polyurethane binders adhere so well to Infinergy®, there are other processing techniques such as gluing and foam sealing of the beads. This procedure enables large-scale processing of Infinergy®.
Converters can process panels made from Infinergy® on conventional splitting machines, punches and water jet cutting machines.
Infinergy® is compliant with the RoHS directive and does not have to be labeled under dangerous goods regulations.
Information on other regulations, e. g. GADSL, will be provided on request.
Infinergy is also recyclable.
BASF today launched a new brand strategy, “Empowering Movement,” that presents Infinergy® – its expanded thermoplastic polyurethane (E-TPU) – with a refreshed brand identity portraying the power of movement. BASF also introduced a state-of-the-art virtual showroom, which showcases Infinergy’s diverse applications and properties.
Mini beads, black beads, bicycle saddles, tennis rackets, sports and fall-protection floors, safety footwear, luminous Infinergy® panels and lots more – at the BASF stand in hall 5, stand C21/D21, visitors will be able to experience the variety of innovations from Infinergy® inspired. Completely new Infinergy® applications are found in Vision Venture, the concept camper van from Hymer and BASF. Here, Infinergy® is the perfect fit – as a step, bed edge and as a comfort element in the slatted frame.
BASF has been awarded the Top 10 “Sports Surfaces Materials Supplier” by the Shanghai Chemical Building Material Trade Association (SCBMTA). The award recognizes BASF’s significant contribution towards upgrading industry standards of sports flooring with safer, higher-quality products.
Plymouth Foam is launching its new line of dog toys under their AIREHIDE brand which uses BASF’s Infinergy material.
At CHINAPLAS 2019, BASF will introduce for the first time the prototype of a concept wheelchair, the “Ren Chair,” co-created by Wheel-Line Co., Ltd, REHTO Design and BASF. Developed in direct consultation with wheelchair users, the Ren Chair combines bold design and style with high-performance materials from BASF, addressing wheelchair users’ needs for a safer, barrier-free experience.
