Bayer MaterialScience: Safety, freedom, and happiness

The stand will be a "show and tell” experience, where visitors can share their dreams for the future regarding products and materials. The BMS TPU business unit will have several "dream products” on display, among them a Desmopan for the generative production of components through selective laser sintering, the new shape memory materials, TPU flooring systems, several new soft ether TPUs, adhesion-optimised materials, and much more.Desmopan DP 3055D DPS 066 is according to BMS a "high-speed TPU”. With this material processors are able to cut cycle times by as much as 25 % compared to other standard Desmopan TPU grades. This leap in cost-effectiveness is attributable to the TPU's fast melt solidification and improved demoulding behaviour. BMS says that there is practically no need for additional cooling time when injection moulding very thin-walled components such as animal ID tags. The material is also used for producing special flooring panels, coupling elements and other high-stress construction parts. Stabilised against hydrolysis, the material is also well-suited for heel tips on shoes, for example. In this case, the high abrasion and wear resistance typical of this family of ester TPUs is a great advantage.BMS announced that it is currently installing a globally standardised Desmopan Product Center.Hall 6, stand A75-1..3
