INFINERGY® technology has been recognized by the Occupational Health and Safety Profession, which awarded it the 2018 Innovation Grand Prize.
E-TPU: Expanded Thermoplastic PolyUréthaneWhich is marketed under the name Infinergy ® .
Elastic like rubber but lighter, this innovative expanded TPU (E -TPU) combines, thanks to its closed cell technology, TPU properties with the benefits of foam:
- Low density (about 0,25)
- High elasticity
- Lightness and softness
- High resistance to abrasion
- High resistance to traction
- Good chemical resistance
- Very good long-term durability in a wide range of operating temperatures
- An exceptional resilience (that has an extraordinary ability to return energy).
BECAUSE YOU ARE BETTER WHEN YOU FEEL GOOD !
One of the most important characteristics of Infinergy ® from BASF is the excellent elastic memory, thanks to its closed cells structure and to the original molecular architecture of the polymer.
The “rebound test” for elastic resistance, a test method determined by ISO 8307, proved that the E-TPU rebound coefficient is more than 55%, much higher than all other polymers available on the market.
