Thermoplastic Polyurethane: Programmed to Have a Keen Memory

Thermoplastic Polyurethane: Programmed to Have a Keen Memory

Plastics can also remember things. This is made clear by a new thermoplastic polyurethane. The shape memory polymer can be temporarily fixed in a deformed state and then converted back almost entirely into its original shape. Potential applications exist in trademark protection and mechanical engineering as well as in the textile, sports, leisure and toy industries.
