Aliphatic TPU Materials


  • Pearlthane™ aliphatic TPU materials offer added value performance including excellent haptics for very high demanding molded applications in sports and recreation, consumer and industrial markets.
  • Color stable Pearlcoat™ Activa D198K TPU, a soft low-gloss material, can be applied in white and light-colored parts as a thermoformed and co-extruded solution.
  • Other segments where our non-yellowing material can be found include profile extrusion and hot melt adhesives. 
  • The latest development, Pearlbond™ 960 EXP, is an aliphatic TPU that brings a unique combination of features including softness (69 shore A), durability (UV stable and resistant to fungi and microorganisms) and a very high bonding strength to various substrates. Pearlbond 960 EXP is even suitable for bonding delicate fabrics such as silk, linen and cotton.

Valuable Differentiation


Pablo Alegre, new business development manager EMEAI, Engineered Polymers, states, "Thanks to our technical expertise and careful attention to customer needs, we have been able to provide solutions not only from a mechanical point of view, but also in aesthetics and haptics. This creates valuable differentiation in our portfolio and enables our customers to deliver innovations and meet the evolving demands of their OEMs and final customers".
