Aliphatic Elastollan® enables innovative overlays for demanding floor coverings
Aliphatic TPU Elastollan® from BASF provides the basis for an innovative overlay solution for manufacturing modular designer floors – or other decorative surfaces. The international packaging and paper company Mondi offers this newly developed surface material under the name roomskin® floor as a composite comprising a printed decorative support and a thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) top layer. For BASF, this means an expansion of the range of applications for its aliphatic Elastollan grades: In addition to established applications such as glass interlayers or films to protect cars from stone chipping, the flexible plastic is now also being used in flooring.
This elastic, highly transparent surface layer is particularly thin and very durable. It feels pleasant to walk on and is used primarily in new types of floor coverings. In addition, surface structures that match the decor can be provided on an individual basis.
You can experience the floor at BASF’s booth at K fair 2016! Visit us for a test walk in hall 5, booth C21/D21.
