Compare Zythane® to Elastollan®,Texin®, Desmopan® and Estane®

What makes Zythane® TPUs so popular, and so much in demand by designers, processors and marketers? 

Zythane® thermoplastic polyurethanes (TPU) are:
  • tough and durable - unparalleled with their abrasion resistance
  • well suited for both soft and rigid applications
  • lightweight, especially as a metal replacement
  • provided with good elasticity properties
  • offer good color stability with UV additives
  • formulated for applications calling for good-to-excellent transparency
  • recyclable
  • available in a wide range of hardnesses, from 60 Shore A to 75 Shore D
  • excellent for low temperature flexibility and fatigue resistance
  • cut and tear resistant
  • hydrolytically stable and naturally antimicrobial for polyether-based grades
  • excellent for adhering to many different substrates (by overmolding)
  • oil, grease, fuel, solvent and chemical resistant
  • resistant to creep in load bearing applications
  • available in halogen and non-halogen FR (fire retardant) grades
  • easy to process in injection molding and extrusion
  • substantial cost savings
Under the direction of industry’s leading marketing and technical support executives, Roger J. Huarng and Stephane Morin, formerly with BASF Corporation, Alliance Polymers & Services (APS) offers custom and standard soft elastomer formulations.  Our team offers the knowledge of all TPEs, TPUs and TPVs - providing technical support and chemical expertise.

Our engineered polymers, Zythane® TPU  allow OEM and processors to conceptualize, develop, and substantially reduce their cost on elastomer-based products. Compare our TPUs with our competitor's and discover why manufacturers rely on Alliance Polymers & Services (APS) as their source for polymer solutions to unique application challenges.
