Applications in the footwear industry
Modern footwear without Polyurethane is almost unthinkable. It is the material of choice when it comes to long-lasting and high-quality shoe soles. For sports, fashion and safety footwear, different qualities are essential, and the range of available products is just as large as the variety of different needs. What makes the material unique is the direct soling process, granting the maximum in effectivity and cost-reduction. The liquid polyurethane acts as a glue during the reaction process inside the mould, which makes it possible to integrate additional functional parts without the need of extra attachment methods.
Polyurethane offers multiple benefits in comparison to alternative materials. Antistatic, ESD, Oil resistant or high-comfort, cold-flex or systems based on renewable materials – you name it, we can make it happen. By adjusting the chemical composition of the material it is possible to adjust the mechanical properties to nearly any desired setting. Of course, the reaction profile can be easily customized to fit your production requirements.
Our systems based on renewable materials help to contribute greatly to environmental protection. We have developed a system comprising of about 70% raw materials made from pure natural resources. The result is not only environmentally friendly, but retains all values and mechanical properties as well as the processability known from regular formulations.
