A low-durometer TPU from Noveon Inc. (now Estane Engineered Polymers), Cleveland, has been introduced for demanding hose and tube applications. Estane 58070 is claimed to offer low-temperature flexibility and snapback resistance, so extruded products reportedly can be rolled and unrolled easily. This plasticized polyester TPU has 72 Shore A hardness and is particularly suited for oil-transport hoses. Tel: (216) 4475000 • www.estane.com
