With Infinergy™ BASF SE offers the first expandable TPU (E-TPU) in the world. This innovative material is elastic and flexible like rubber but as light as a feather. It combines the characteristics of TPU with the advantages of particle foams, standing out by low density, high elasticity and perfect resilience.
The Kurtz ENERGY FOAMER is the first and only shape moulding machine enabling an optimized process operation and field-tested serial production with E-TPU. Special filling technologies and steaming variants secure a continuous production despite the narrow processing window.
