Abstract

Various grades of Thermoplastic Polyurethane (TPU) supplied by Bayer were studied to determine their suitability for the rotational moulding process. Following grinding, parts were produced using a variety of peak internal air temperatures and cooling rates. The tensile and impact properties of these parts were then analysed and it was found that both the grade and moulding conditions had a large bearing on the quality and mechanical strength of the part produced.
