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.
