What is TPU?
TPU is thermoplastic polyurethane elastomeric rubber. It is mainly divided into polyester type and polyether type. It has a wide range of hardness (60HA-85HD), abrasion and oil resistance, transparency, and good elasticity. Halogen-free flame-retardant TPU can also replace soft PVC to meet environmental protection requirements in more and more fields. TPU has strong high tension and high tensile force. It is a mature environmental protection material and has obtained the relevant certification of international green environmental protection materials. Therefore, it is used in organic photoelectric materials. It has attracted more and more people's attention. Now it is widely used in different industries like shoe materials, garments, inflatable toys, water and underwater sports equipment, medical equipment, fitness equipment, car seat materials, umbrellas, suitcases, leather bags, etc. 


TPU Market
From the perspective of global geographical distribution, the TPU market is mainly concentrated in Europe, the United States and the Asia-Pacific region. Among them, the Asian region led by China is the world's leading and fastest-rising regional market. The application of TPU has expanded from the traditional footwear industry to industries with excellent future development industries such as medicine, aviation, and environmental protection. With the development of the market, it is an inevitable trend that the application of plastics in many industries will be replaced by TPU.


What is a ribbon mixer?
Ribbon Blender consists of U-shape shell, double ribbons and drive units. The outer ribbons transfer raw material from two ends to centre while the inner ribbons moves the material in opposite in form of counter-current movement. Such kind mixing coating equipment is widely used in TPU application now.


Why can S&L ribbon mixer get perfect coating during mixing?

1) Considering Elastic properties of TPU, it is critical to select suitable motor power

2) Rotation speed of agitator must be reasonable to prevent static electricity

3) The welding between mixer vessel and end plates must be seamless, radius and smooth to avoid dead area causing product block.

4) Due to the shape of the TPU granules, attention to the gap between agitator and mixer body must be paid to make sure uniform clearance for lower section there to avoid deforming due to compressing.
