Plasticizer-free TPUs

Texin thermoplastic polyurethanes (TPUs) are plasticizer-free and bridge the gap between hard thermoplastics and rubber. Many comply with FDA food-contact regulations and several meet the biocompatibility requirements of FDA-modified ISO 10993-1 tests. The TPUs sport good abrasion, chemical, and solvent resistance, are easily colored, and remain flexible over a wide temperature range.
