Elastollan® for the Footwear Industry

Excellent properties, such as mechanical strength, resistance to abrasion, and slip resistance, together with a broad range of possible degrees of hardness make Elastollan® an ideal material for footwear applications.  

Soft grades are used for cushioning elements, medium hardness grades are suitable for compact or combination soles and hard grades are the best solution for heels and heel tips. Anti-static agents can be added to the Elastollan® so that it can be used for safety footwear.
