Product Character
Description

Agatech Air Cushion, TPU honeycomb is a thermoplastic polyurethane core that has been developed using a high frequency welding process. The core can be supplied either sandwiched between two face sheets of polyurethane material or stabilized by heat flanging the edges of the cells. The resulting Agatech TPU structure is flexible, redirects energy, resists fatigue, and provides cushioning.

Applications

Agatech Air Cushion is an excellent material for any application requiring flexibility, cushioning, and withstanding repetitive impacts. This versatile honey-comb product is currently being used very successfully for energy redirection in soles of athletic footwear.
It is also a superior product for use in mattress pads, seat cushions, body protection vests, orthopedic braces, and sports protective equipment. It has excellent fatigue resistance and remains flexible at low temperatures.

 

Energy Return

The unique energy redirection property of Agatech Air Cushion, as compared to conventional energy absorbing foam materials, such as EVA foam, is depicted below
