Aliphatic TPU Film Applications

Aliphatic TPU Film

-

Offering excellent optical clarity, Aliphatic Polyurethane Film is often used in laminated glass, protective covers for road signs, and in applications where TPU film is needed for protection or to provide strength to a product without interfering with its appearance.  Aliphatic Urethanes are highly UV stable and very suitable for outdoor applications. Please contact American Polyfilm to discuss fulfilling custom orders for Aliphatic Urethane.  

See our Applications pages for a partial list of practical uses for our Polyurethane Film.

Polyester TPU Film

-

Polyester Polyurethane is the workhorse of polyurethane films.  It offers excellent strength and long-term stability. When heated, Polyester Polyurethane acts as an adhesive and can be used for emblems in industrial laundry, textile labeling, and ID systems applications.  It can also be used as a protective layer to prevent the scratching of delicate parts in metal bending and machine shop applications.

Aromatic Polyesters function extremely well in demanding, abrasive environments.  Aromatic Polyesters offer high tensile strength and abrasion resistance and function well in contact with fuels.  Polyester films are also used in multi-layer laminations as an adhesive layer or a barrier layer.  They can also be used as a food-grade cover in multiple applications, including conveyor belting.  Aromatic Polyester ages better than other Thermoplastic Polyurethanes, but unlike Aromatic Polyether, it will eventually break down in high-humidity environments.

Polyether TPU Film Applications

Polyether TPU Film

-

Aromatic Polyethers function very well in applications requiring direct contact with human skin.  Offering a high resistance to skin oils, Polyethers have high Moisture Vapor Transmission Rates (MVTR), maintain their flexibility in low temperature environments, and can withstand prolonged exposure to high-humidity environments without degradation.  Polyethers weld easily, have a softer non-plastic feel, and will not support fungal growth.  Very often Polyether Films are used in multi-layer laminations as an adhesive layer or a barrier layer.  

  • Resistant to Skin Oils
  • Can Be Formulated for High MVTR
  • Good Low Temperature Flexibility
  • Does Not Support the Growth of Microorganisms
  • Excellent Hydrolytic Stability

We routinely work with our compounders to meet our Customers' needs for Tinted and Colored Film.  We realize that oftentimes matching a color is essential to the success of the end product. 

To that end, we offer custom color matching to color samples, and we can match most of the Pantone® Color Library.
