Foster Corporation formulates, manufacturers, and markets thermoplastic polyurethane elastomers (TPU’s). These TPU materials can be, and are, processed by a variety of techniques including thermoplastic injection molding.
TPU’s are easily molded into shapes such as grips, gaskets, caps, orthotics & prosthetics, as well as many other applications. However, for this to be done effectively you need the right equipment and the right injection molding parameters. In addition, TPU’s exhibit a few “TPU-centric behaviors” regards processing, pre-process preparation, and post-processing of the polymers.
