Compared to TPUs made from conventional petrochemical-based materials, the Bio TPU material offers several advantages in reducing carbon dioxide emissions during its production, comparable transparency, and claims of a better chemical and hydrolytic resistance. The new hoses also meet CE regulations making them suitable for the delivery of dry food products.Both hoses are light, flexible, and suitable for various applications in the ceramics and wood industries including delivery of abrasive powders and suction of pellets and granulated materials. The chemical properties provide resistance to mineral oils, weathering, ozone and UV light. The new hoses are suitable for use within a temperature range of -40 °C to +90 °C. Both are electrically bonded according to TRB S 2153. The hoses are instantly recognisable from their green steel spiral in the transparent hose.IPL continues to focus on the use and development of sustainable materials as more and more sectors are looking for innovative ways to create a "greener" way of doing business, even in the demanding world of industrial subcontracting.
