What is FLEX-TUFF™?

FLEX-TUFF™ is a biphasic material with a hard-crystalline domain and a soft amorphous domain that are chemically bonded. It has a tensile strength of 500 - 2500 psi and an elongation of 600% max. This means that it can stretch to moderate elongations and return to its near original shape, creating a longer life and better physical range than other materials.

Why use FLEX-TUFF™ in rubber boots?

FLEX-TUFF™ exhibits characteristics of thermosetting rubber but can be formed using the same processes used for thermoplastics. This makes it lightweight and ideal for certain applications. In many cases, FLEX-TUFF™ is chosen for products over rubber because of its flexibility, versatility, and recyclability.
