As carbon neutrality and peak carbon development accelerates globally, TPU has become a popular new material due to its recyclability and environmental friendliness, making it a new favorite in the field of new energy vehicle components. TPU is a widely used thermoplastic elastomer. So what are the applications of TPU materials in new energy vehicle components? Let's take a look together!
TPU material, as an innovative thermoplastic elastomer, has unparalleled practicality. It is used in various parts of automobiles such as car seats, headrests, airbags, instrument panels, car doors, side panels, cup holders, car window seals, roof linings, and shock absorber brackets and structural frameworks, as well as in car coatings, paint protection films, shock absorber pads, sound-absorbing foam, and sealing materials.
Thermoplastic elastomer TPU materials can reduce the weight of automobile parts by 30%–35% and the procurement cost by about 30%–40%, and are recyclable, renewable, safe, non-toxic, environmentally friendly, and reliable, with obvious advantages.
TPU materials have excellent bending resistance, high elasticity, excellent coloring properties, and lightweight flexibility, and are widely used in various automotive power systems, such as wiring harnesses, spiral pipes, multilayer hoses, telescopic wires, flat cables, cable sheaths, connectors, and fuses.
TPU materials have excellent wear resistance and are widely used in automotive transmission systems, such as shift lever handles, universal joint shaft sleeves, shaft bushes, bearings, steering rod sheaths and gaskets, oil seals, and washers.
TPU materiasl have excellent corrosion resistance and are widely used in automotive engine systems, such as timing belts, oil pipes, intake devices, lightweight foam for car oil cups and engine covers.
TPU materials have excellent fatigue resistance and are widely used in automotive suspension and chassis systems, such as suspension diaphragms, suspension joint hinges, dust covers, hydraulic pneumatic pipes, shock absorbers, shock absorber diaphragms, spring limit blocks.
The above applications of TPU materials in new energy vehicle components are shared here. TPU has outstanding performance, significant technological advances, and rapid growth in the global TPU industry. High-end applications are gradually expanding, and TPU has a variety of application forms in the field of new energy vehicles, playing an important role in achieving carbon neutrality and peak carbon.
