Crack-resistant hybrid TPU-PVC for automotive seating

Called PVU, the hybrid of TPU and PVC is more resistant to cracking under heavy and long-term use in automotive seating. Using both coating and extrusion technologies, TMG was able to achieve compatibility between polymers and the interlayer adhesion without using external adhesives. Upgrading PVC’s properties made it more suitable for high-end usage, even in the most demanding applications.
