Product Features

The Ether-PUR FLEX 84 product line is made from an ether based polyurethane resin. This material is much more abrasion and impact resistant than PVC while maintaining flexibility and clarity. Urethane also possesses a high level of chemical compatibility. Since this is a pure polyurethane resin, it contains no plasticizers and has a very low level of extractables making it a great product for high purity applications. This formulation CAN be used with aqueous solutions.

Ether-PUR FLEX 84

  • Clear and Flexible
  • Tough; resists tearing and abrasion
  • Superior resistance to hydrolytic degradation compared to Ester-PUR FLEX 85
  • Flexible at low temperatures
  • High impact resistance
  • Pure polyurethane; contains no plasticizers and low levels of extractables
  • Resistant to atmospheric ozone
  • Complies with FDA CFR21 for food packaging

Typical Applications

  • High-purity applications
  • Instrumententation
  • Distilled, deionized, demineralized or reverse osmosis-treated water
  • Handling petroleum- based products
  • Recommended for use with aqueous solutions
