TPU Interlayer Film

About Argotec Thermoplastic Polyurethane Films For Glass Interlayers

Argotec™ Thermoplastic Polyurethane (TPU) film, custom engineered from high-performance resin, provides strength and optical clarity when sandwiched between multiple layers of glass and/or plastic sheets. These glass lamination films provide unmatched optical clarity, lay flat, and overall consistent quality. Argotec thermoplastic polyurethane TPU film is used extensively in aerospace, military and commercial bullet-, impact- and hurricane- resistant composites.


  • Optically clear with no yellowing
  • High tensile strength
  • Lays flat and smooth
  • Ultraviolet (UV) protection
  • No plasticizers to migrate or cause embrittlement


  • Bonds dissimilar optical layers for impact resistant applications
  • Exceptionally strong composite bonding
  • No refrigeration needed, which prevents blocking
  • Ideal for high impact resistant, ballistic resistant or bullet resistant glass
  • Excellent elongation properties at a wide range of temperatures
  • Adhesion to polycarbonate and glass is 150 PLI
  • Thermal expansion and contraction properties are ideal for bonding dissimilar materials


  • Armored civilian and military vehicles
  • Aircraft canopies and side windows
  • Architectural glazing
  • Rail windscreens
  • Dynamic glazing for security glass and glazing composites
  • Weather resistant construction (i.e. hurricane, tornado) resistant glass
  • Security for embassies, government buildings, correctional facilities, financial institutions, schools
  • Safety film

Argotec Interlayer TPU film is compatible with all types of electronic films and has excellent temperature performance combined with superior electrical insulation properties. When used as an adhesive layer between the glass and electronic components in touchscreen monitors, this thermoplastic polyurethane film protects the sensitive electronics from damage caused by exposure to temperature extremes and wear. Designed for ease of use, Argotec TPU Films are engineered to work correctly in the laminator’s equipment, whether autoclaves, nip rolls, or bladder presses. They lay up well, are not tacky, and laminate with minimal voids for fast and efficient installation.

Best-In-Class Argotec TPU Interlayer Films

To ensure quality, we use digital camera inspection on all interlayer film production. Computerized systems can detect and document pin holes, voids, gels, wrinkles, streaks, contaminants, and other imperfections as small as 0.3 mm. All of our interlayer extruders are housed in an atmospherically controlled hard walled white room. Each extrusion line is in its own ISO Class 7, soft walled clean room.

Our products do not require refrigerated storage and do not contain plasticizers that can migrate and degrade a composite structure. Argotec has the cleanest, most modern interlayer film extrusion operation in North America, Europe and Asia and extrudes over 50% of the world’s total usage of TPU interlayer films.

Engineers know that the highest quality standards are found in the aerospace industry. This is why the vast majority of all TPU bonded aircraft canopies and windows are laminated using Argotec interlayer film.
