Milan, Italy — Api will launch two new TPU footwear materials at Simac Tanning Tech. The event is to be held in Milan from 20-22 February 2018.
Api said its new Apilon 52 Exp and Apilon 52 light are expanded TPU materials. They both have soft touch and low density, the company added.
Microcellular midsoles are the market for the 52 Exp grade. The 52 Light grade is designed for outers. The Light grade offers good abrasion resistance, said Api.
Both grades have 'long-term bond reliability to upper materials', said Giancarlo Busa, Api business unit manager, footwear. 'Both materials are suitable for overmoulding.'
