VYTHENE

TPU compounds for healthcare applications

VYTHENE TPU compounds are alloys of vinyl and polyurethane. They are designed for applications requiring higher elongation values (the ability to stretch).  Materials are tough, flexible, transparent, and kink resistant. 

 

These materials are ideal for applications exposed to repeated pressure and movement.​

VYTHENE TPU compounds for tubing applications

Formulated as an alloy of vinyl and polyurethane, VYTHENE TPU compounds are ideal for applications that see repeated pressure and movement, such as dialysis tubing.  High elongation values give these materials the ability to stretch while maintaining toughness, flexibility, and kink resistance.
