LARIPUR TPU

LARIPUR TPU
Thermoplastic Polyurethanes

We carry an extensive stock of the Laripur TPU range from Italy.

 

TPU has some key properties which make it the material of choice in a number of fields

  • Excellent abrasion resistance
  • Highly flexible
  • Good compression set
  • Good water and light resistance (polyether types)
  • Good resistance to oils, fats and many solvents (polyester types)

The Laripur range is very broad so we can only give a snapshot from it here. The most important types are :

 

SERIES ‘25’ POLYESTER TYPES – SHORE A65 – SHORE D67

 

SERIES ‘60’ POLYETHER TYPES – SHORE A77 – SHORE D72

 

HYDRAULIC GASKET TYPES – SHORE A92/93

 

Depending on the individual grade, Laripur TPUs can be successfully processed by injection moulding or extrusion.

 

The relative performance of the different families of polyurethane are shown in the property comparison table below:

The Laripur range is very large. A snapshot, showing some of the most common grades, is shown in the attached table. However, if you have requirements that are not covered, please call us to check out availability of other grades.
