A robust material has been developed by Huntsman Polyurethanes for the European glass and lamination market. The KRYSTALFLEX PE505 thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) film offers such benefits as penetration resistance, flexibility, light weight, transparency and enhanced UV stability.

Designed primarily for use in transparent armour employed in military vehicles, this technical interlayer enables the production of thin, lightweight glazing systems that offer improved anti-blast properties and ballistic protection. The film can be produced at varying degrees of thickness to meet application requirements.

Capable of performing well at both high and low temperatures, the material is also being targeted for use in general security and intrusion resistant glazing projects as well as aerospace and rail applications.
