Pebax Elastomer: the Best-Performing Elastomer on the Market for the Soles of Sports Shoes
2018-07-04    [Source:ARKEMA]

To help athletes push their limits, Arkema has developed a thermoplastic elastomer (TPE), Pebax® (a polyether block amide), which has a unique combination of light weight, elasticity, comfort, toughness and flexibility.

Puma, The North Face, Mizuno … major brands have adopted Pebax® elastomer for their designs of “high performance” soles for soccer and rugby boots, running and tennis shoes, even hiking boots.

70% of football players during the competition in Russia had shoes with Pebax® elastomer in it.

This versatile elastomer is also used in the manufacture of ski boot shells for major brands like Scarpa, Dynafit, Scott and Fisher, where its properties are all the more appreciated as they remain unaffected by very low temperatures. Compared to elastomers traditionally used in ski boots, such as TPU, Pebax® elastomer is 20% lighter.
