BASF Polyurethanes has added Elastollan 785 A 10 HPM (high-performance material) to its product line of thermoplastic polyurethanes (TPU) for cable sheathing. Easier to process than alternative materials, Elastollan 785 passes the winding test after 3000 h of hot-air ageing at 150°C (302°F), making it suitable for higher voltages in vehicles with electric motors. The product features a sound polymer structure as well as resistance to external influences. Flexible TPU materials are mechanically strong, vibration- and friction-proof, and chemical-resistant and are suitable for areas near the axles, in the wheel wells, and in the engine compartment as well as in the spaces close to the transmission. Battery lines manufactured from TPU can be supplied in a halogen-free, flame-resistant variant. Elastollan 785 TPU offers lower compression but may improve performance for the high temperatures found in electric and hybrid vehicles.
