ArgoThane®

Polymer performance technology for general and specialty films and sheet.

About this product

ArgoThane® is a comprehensive line of general and specialty films engineered to fulfill the demands of today’s global specialty films marketplace. Thermoplastic polyurethane is SWM’s specialty but we are regarded as experts in the industry for our proven ability to produce exceedingly high-quality films from other difficult-to-extrude polymers. If a standard grade does not meet the needs of your application we will work with you to provide an ArgoThane®-based custom engineered specialty films.

 

SWM is recognized as the leading global supplier of custom-engineered, high-performance, thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) film and sheet. Using our extensive experience in the most advanced flat-die, cast-on-carrier, blown-film extrusion, and multi-layer construction technologies we produce high-quality materials to perform reliably in a wide variety of critical applications.
