Biesterfeld becomes exclusive distributor of TPU Elastollan® from BASF across large areas of Europe

Biesterfeld Plastic is once again expanding its cooperation with long-standing partner BASF. The company is distributing the thermoplastic polyurethane elastomer Elastollan® in central, western and southern Europe now on the basis of an exclusive distribution agreement.

Elastollan®, which can be used in virtually any area of industry, is the perfect addition to the international plastics distributor’s extensive product portfolio.
As well as Ester and Ether TPUs, the company supplies light-resistant aliphatic types and innovative products with various hardnesses from Shore A 35 to D 83.
Due to its excellent physical properties, Elastollan® is especially well suited to challenging applications in a wide range of industrial sectors. With its high resistance to wear, abrasion, and tearing, as well as excellent tensile strength, it possesses outstanding mechanical properties. In addition to use in gear knobs, door handles, and liner mats in the automotive industry, it is also processed in the sports and leisure industry, such as in ski boots and sports shoes. In the electrical industry, Elastollan® is used in connectors, cables, and sleeves. It also has applications in machine construction as a raw material for gears and transport systems.

“We’re delighted to be able to strengthen our strategic partnership with BASF,” says Claus Berger, Product Manager, Biesterfeld Plastic. “Elastollan® is an important component of our portfolio of higher-grade technical TPEs. Our customers value us as a supplier of world-leading brands and product solutions. By distributing BASF’s Elastollan®, we are underlining this once more.”

“The product can also be processed in various ways with other polymers from our portfolio, so we offer our customers comprehensive solutions from a single source,” adds Dietmar Zinkand, Business Manager Engineering Thermoplastics, Biesterfeld Plastic.

“With Biesterfeld at our side as a strong pan-European distribution partner, we have the best possible starting point to optimally position Elastollan® on the European market,” says Carsten Buschmann, Head of Product Management TPU at BASF. “As regards TPU, BASF and Biesterfeld are linked by a partnership that has been going strong for 20 years, which we are consistently and successfully developing with far-ranging Europe-wide distribution rights for Elastollan®.”
