- Combination of Estane TPU chemistry and Trexel’s foam technology
- Plasticizer-free TPU with long-term cushioning properties
- Applications: sports & recreation
Trexel, Inc., in cooperation with Lubrizol Engineered Polymers, announced the development of a new high performance TPU foam technology: BounCell-X. The combination of Lubrizol’s Estane TPU chemistry with the MuCell physical foam injection molding technologies created a plasticizer-free, thermoplastic foam with low density and very good long-term cushioning properties.
According to the companies, the material features a thin solid skin for durable TPU performance and a broad property range (hardness and energy absorption/return). It can be processed using the injection molding process (incl. over-molding).
