THERPUS is a thermoplastic polyurethane resin with a very precisely engineered particle form and a narrow particle size distribution. It is held in high regard in the industry due to its application as a skin material in automobile interiors, allowing outstanding appearance, long life, great design flexibility, soft feel and attractive economics. It has taken the place of plasticized PVC which suffers from hardening and cracking over time due to plasticizer migration All THERPUS series products are produced at our plants in Japan and US, and are used in all three major automotive production areas – Asia, Europe & North America. THERPUS F, our latest grade, exhibits a very unique articulated molecular structure. It incorporates crystalline regions which are hard at temperatures under 140 C but soft at temperatures over 150C. This permits the formation of a thinner skin with high tensile strength, excellent durability and a soft, leather-like feel, thus allowing for complex design features and superior feel of touch.
