Why TPU Elastomer is an environmentally friendly plastic material
May 20 , 2022

Thermoplastic polyurethane TPU Elastomer is a non-toxic and odorless material. Some TPU series have passed medical certification and FDA certification, and can be implanted into the human body and contact with food. TPU plastic is recyclable and can be used in many industries. TPU resin can decompose after a certain period of time, and will not cause pollution to the environment. TPU does not contain banned substances such as plasticizers and phthalates, as well halogen which will produce highly toxi when burned. TPU Elastomer environmental safety and environmental friendly plastic material.


TPU can be recycled and reused to make other products


Thermoplastic polyurethane TPU material is a non-toxic and odorless material

Environment Friendly

TPU has very good environmental safety performance and does not contain banned substances such as Phthalates and plasticizers which will interfering with the development and growth of children in children human body. TPU does not contain halogen and will not produce toxic substances when burned.


Buried in soil, TPU plastic can decompose naturally within 5 to 10 years

Safety for human body

TPU is non-toxic and can be in contact with human skin for a long time. In addition, some grades TPU materials can also be used in food contact products, and even some medical products.


Basically almost all TPU models can pass REACH and ROHS certification. REACH (REGULATION concerning the Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals) is the certification of restricted content of the 209 high-risk chemicals. RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances) is certification of restricted content of restriction of 10 hazardous substance including lead, cadmium, mercury, hexavalent chromium, polybrominated biphenyls, polybrominated diphenyl ethers, phthalates (DBP, BBP, DEHP, DIBP) . Some types of TPU are FDA-approved and can be used in food-grade products. Almost all models of KOSLEN TPU can pass FDA certification and be used in food contact products.

PVC is produced from chlorine. EDC and VCM (ethylene dichloride) is the intermediate product in the production process. The stabilizers (such as lead, cadmium) and plasticizers (phthalates, such as DEHP) that need to be added when producing various PVC products. Hydrochloric acid and dioxin the poison of the century be produced after PVC products disposal burning. All these are harmful substances. PVC products have a strong pungent odor. PVC plastic not only produces a lot of toxic and harmful substances in the process of products production and PVC manufacture, but also with low recyclability . Therefore, the United States and Europe have gradually disuse PVC since 2008. TPU is a new type of environmentally friendly material with excellent properties. TPU can be used wherever PVC and PU can be used. It is the most ideal material to replace PVC and PU.
