Distrupol signed as sole distributor for Elastollan in the United Kingdom and Ireland

Distrupol : 19 February, 2004  (Company News)
Distrupol, a member company of Univar and a leading European polymer distributor, technical service and solutions provider, has been appointed sole distributor for Elastollan thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) throughout the United Kingdom and Ireland where the company is the established distribution leader.
Elastollan TPU is produced by Elastogran GmbH, a subsidiary of BASF AG and a world leader in polyurethane technology, and is an exceptionally versatile polymer. It can be processed on conventional injection moulding and extrusion machines, as well as on multi-component machines where it can be combined with engineering plastics and rubber.

“Elastollan TPU is a great addition to our range of flexible polymers,” says John Wallace, Managing Director of Distrupol’s business in Ireland. “We are delighted to be able to offer customers such an outstanding range of products and the benefits they offer, such as the possibility to reduce wall thickness, as well as the low wear and long life they bring to the finished part”.

Elastollan TPU is elastic, resistant to buckling and impact, with good dimensional stability and is stable at temperatures from – 40° to +125° C. Together with good resilience, it is resistant to oils, fuels, UV radiation and hydrolysis, and has hardness ranging from 55 Shore A to 74 Shore D, thereby giving it an optimum fit in a very broad span of applications and industries.

Elastollan TPU, which can be coloured or painted and is recyclable, has already achieved significant success in applications ranging from automotive parts to medical equipment, wire and cable sheathing to components for the offshore industry and domestic appliances, as well as in leisurewear and sports goods.

Elastogran selected Distrupol as its partner because of the company’s proven materials knowledge-base and the high level of technical support it provides to customers. These services extend across materials selection and testing to assistance with application development in respect of design, tooling advice and production optimization. Moreover, the comprehensive support offered by Distrupol is complemented by its well-established networks in both the UK and Ireland, which position it close to customers and therefore ideally placed to understand their needs.
