BASF’s Elastollan TPU Protective Covering in Diamond Wire Technology

October 11 2021

BASF’s Elastollan thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) is now used as a more durable protective covering in diamond wire technology to cut hard materials such as granite and marble. Segments affixed with diamond pieces for heavy-duty sawing, and spread evenly over the wire, are also kept in place owing to Elastollan‘s flexibility and rigidity. Elastollan, which helps extend the shelf life of the protective covering in diamond wire technology, is consequently a more sustainable option. This diamond wire cutting technology is well demanded in the photovoltaic and semiconductor industries.
