Film & Sheet

Elastollan offers a wide range of products and superior properties for film, sheet and fabric-coating applications. These characteristics include excellent transparency, outstanding abrasion/puncture resistance and tensile strength, and good low-temperature flexibility. In addition, specific Elastollan properties can be enhanced by BASF’s expertise in polyurethane chemistry:

  • Aliphatic grades are available.
  • Special Elastollan grades can be formulated for high Moisture Vapor Transmission Rate (MVTR), good UV resistance and the ability to achieve FDA and NSF certifications.
  • Polyether-based grades of Elastollan offer good microbial resistance, enhanced resistance to weak acids/bases and excellent hydrolytic stability.
  • Polyester-based grades of Elastollan provide good oil/solvent resistance and high-temperature performance.

Automotive Foam-In-Place Seats

Manufacturers are comfortable using Elastollan for automotive foam-in-place seats because of the TPU’s significant tear/cut/abrasion resistance, adhesion to fabric, barrier properties, low-temperature flexibility, hydrolytic stability, resistance to weathering and color stability.

Bedsheets (Moisture Barriers)

Elastollan offers products with excellent hydrolytic stability and microbial resistance for use in manufacturing bedsheets.

Bike Seat Covers

Elastollan can help smooth the road to producing superior bike seat covers with characteristics including tear/cut/abrasion resistance, high puncture resistance, long-term flexibility, low-temperature flexibility, hydrolytic stability, resistance to weathering and color stability.

Breathable Film

For breathable film, Elastollan has you covered with traits such as outstanding cut/tear/abrasion resistance, high puncture resistance, low-temperature/long-term flexibility and hydrolytic stability.

Breathable Sport Fabrics

For breathable sport fabrics, Elastollan has you covered with traits such as cut/tear/abrasion resistance, high puncture resistance, low-temperature/long-term flexibility, hydrolytic stability, resistance to weathering and color stability.

Collapsible Fuel Tanks

When used in the manufacture of collapsible fuel tanks, Elastollan can impart abrasion/tear/cut resistance, high burst pressure, good adhesion to fabric, barrier properties, low-temperature flexibility, hydrolytic stability, fuel resistance, resistance to weathering and color stability.

Collapsible Water Tanks

Elastollan is the wave of the future when it comes to collapsible water tanks, providing abrasion/tear/cut resistance, high burst pressure, good adhesion to fabric, barrier properties, low-temperature flexibility, hydrolytic stability, resistance to weathering and color stability.

Seeders

Elastollan provides superior performance in seeder conveyor belts as a result of its abrasion resistance, resistance to weathering, color stability and resistance to farm chemicals.

Geomembranes

Boasting excellent hydrolytic stability, Elastollan also adds high puncture resistance, long-term flexibility, and low-temperature flexibility to the production of geomembranes.

Inflatable Boats

Inflatable boats can be successfully manufactured with Elastollan as a result of the TPU’s abrasion/tear/cut resistance, puncture resistance, high burst pressure, good adhesion to fabric, barrier properties, low-temperature flexibility, hydrolytic stability, resistance to weathering and color stability.

Inflatable Flotation Devices

Providing characteristics that include tear/cut/abrasion resistance, high puncture resistance, long-term/low-temperature flexibility, hydrolytic stability, resistance to weathering and color stability, Elastollan is a real lifesaver for companies that make inflatable flotation devices.

Ski Laminates

Tear/cut/abrasion resistance, high puncture resistance, long-term flexibility, low-temperature flexibility, hydrolytic stability, resistance to weathering and color stability are just some of the Elastollan characteristics that aid the production of ski laminates.

Softball Covers

Elastollan is a big hit with makers of softball covers, who prefer the BASF TPU for its tear/cut/abrasion resistance, high puncture resistance, long-term flexibility, low-temperature flexibility, hydrolytic stability, resistance to weathering and color stability.

Wheelchair Cushions

Imparting washability, microbial resistance and hydrolytic stability, Elastollan is an important part of the manufacture of wheelchair cushions.

Wound Dressings

In addition to the characteristics mentioned above, Elastollan also provides wound dressings with hydrolytic stability, FDA and USP Class VI certification, and washability.
