BASF’s Thermoplastic Polyurethane Makes Low Impact, No Impact
The new PSA Peugeot Citroën C4 Cactus is a thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) that provides a buffer to the vehicle’s sensitive surface zones.
Large air-filled cushion bumpers, called Airbumps®, are fitted around the car to help absorb bumps. These Airbumps® include Elastollan®, a high-performance material created and optimized by BASF. Elastollan® combines the traditional properties of TPU but with enhanced durability and performance. This additional layer offers abrasion resistance, elasticity, and UV- and weather-resistant capabilities to the vehicle’s surface – all thanks to the incredible properties of polyurethane!
