The robust characteristics of Elastollan make it the superior choice for use in hose and tube applications.
Elastollan provides puncture and abrasion resistance, along with an impressively high burst-pressure rating, yet it also ensures a high degree of flexibility for kink resistance and ease of coiling. BASF also has the chemical expertise to enhance additional key Elastollan properties:
- Polyether-based grades of Elastollan offer improved microbial resistance, enhanced resistance to weak acids/bases and moisture/humidity, and low service temperatures.
- Polyester-based grades of Elastollan supply improved resistance to oils/solvents and weather (UV), along with high service temperatures.
- Grades of Elastollan can be formulated with flame-retarding characteristics as well the ability to meet FDA and other certifications.
Water Hoses (NSF)When used in the health and safety industry, water hoses benefit from Elastollan traits like high burst pressure and hydrolytic stability, as well as NSF 61 certification.

Spiral HosesElastollan TPU is the perfect choice for spiral hose manufacturers, providing great long-term and low-temperature flexibility, superior abrasion/cut/tear resistance and excellent hydrolytic stability.
Organic Waste PipesNotable impact and abrasion resistance, high burst pressure and resistance to waste chemicals are just some of the Elastollan qualities relied on in making organic waste pipes.
Medical TubesMakers of quality medical tubing can depend on Elastollan for high burst pressure, hydrolytic stability, transparency, clarity and both FDA and USP Class VI certification.
Irrigation HosesTraits such as impact and abrasion resistance, high burst pressure, resistance to weathering, color stability and resistance to farm chemicals allow Elastollan to be successfully utilized in irrigation hoses.
Fire HosesWhen used to manufacture fire hoses, Elastollan offers a high burst pressure and excellent hydrolytic stability, along with certification from NSF.
Cured-in-place Pipe (CIPP)Cured-in-place pipe (CIPP) applications demand superior Elastollan properties such as high burst pressure, long-term flexibility, NSF certification, hydrolytic stability, and chemical resistance.
Catheters (FDA & NAMSA)Microbial resistance, high burst pressure, hydrolytic stability, transparency and compliancy with FDA, USP Class VI and NSF 61 all combine to make Elastollan an excellent product for manufacturing catheters.
