Taglus PU FLEX is a homogeneous single-layered polyurethane sheet that consists of linear polymeric chains made of alternating flexible and rigid segments. It is a high-performance aligner and retainer material that provides excellent flexibility, strength, and durability, while also providing comfort for the wearer.
Taglus PU FLEX comprises of flexible segments that have a low glass transition temperature while the rigid segments exhibit a high melting point. This eliminates the multilayer formation yet achieves all its properties in a single layer. The unique modification of these phases makes it possible to have properties such as cold-flexibility, soft-touch, wear and abrasion resistance, chemical resistance, scratch and tear resistance.
Polyurethane has many advantages over PETG in terms that its elastic memory allows polyurethane to return to its original shape when stretched, bent or deformed. TAGLUS PU FLEX achieves both high strength (from the hard materials) and high toughness (from the soft materials).
Use Taglus PU FLEX when you want to prioritise COMFORT while keeping a strong, flexible and beautifully clear product.
Please note that polyurethane is very sensitive to moisture during processing, so please make sure your machine is clean and dry throughout the process.
FEATURES + BENEFITS:
Highly flexible: Unique formulation results in resulting in higher toughness yet more flexibility
Comfortable and durable: High value of elongation at break reduces the risk of aligner cracks
Brilliant wear and tear resistance: Designed for long term wear to withstand tooth forces
Orthodontic forces: Generates 20% more initial forces Vs other PU materials
