RF Welding of Thermoplastic Polyurethane

Introduction To accomplish a reliable transition between two TPU differential durometer components the primary objective is the application of optimized localized process temperatures. Generally speaking, this is accomplished when polymer properties are allowed to exhibit an even distribution of amorphous hard and soft segment in the molecular architecture in process, see Figure 3.0. Although normalization…

Segmentation, Lamination and Post Processing of Amorphous Thermoplastic Urethane

Introduction Segmenting and lamination process technologies result in varied proportions of modulus exhibited at specific axial and or circumferential designations. This is possible due to specific thermal process parameters and tooling with respect to materials used. Materials Products can exhibit superior physical characteristics due to their synergy of optimized processes for specificmaterials, which results in…
