Dow Chemical Co. says soon it will introduce lower yellow-index thermoplastic polyurethane elastomers that it promises will have exceptional color performance.
The new TPU elastomers in Dow's Pellethane product line will allow better aesthetics, weatherability and processing when they are introduced commercially by the end of 2007, the company said.
Midland, Mich.-based Dow said the materials will address market demands for lower yellow-index TPUs. They will allow improved color consistency in parts, less need for ultraviolet-light stabilizers, and better weatherability and thermal stability for high-heat uses and for regrind, according to the company.
