TPE Monolithic Breathable Films
TPE MONOLITHIC BREATHABLE FILMS
Thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) films that are permeable to water vapour, or “breathable,” are finding increasing use in the medical industry 1:3. To meet this demand, a range of such films with chemistries based on ether-type soft segments and amide, urethane, or ester hard segments have been developed. They typically demonstrate the characteristic properties of ether-based TPEs—processability, elasticity, permeability, and strength.
TPE Film can be designed for lamination to technical textile fabrics. The TPE film serves as a barrier membrane to dust or bio-hazards such as blood-borne pathogens, while still allowing perspiration to escape—a process referred to as a water-vapour transmission rate (WVTR).
It is suitable for manufacturing a wide variety of protective attire, surgical gowns, Drapes, Masks, Gloves, Permeable house wrap & Waterproof Attire.
