Capa™ Thermoplastic is a plastic material, which provides a two-in-one solution for shoe counters and toe puffs. With its great adhesive and durable properties Capa™ Thermoplastics reinforce the most exposed parts of the shoe, the shoe counter and toe puffs. By using reinforcement, the shoe retains its shape and function and is more durable and resistant to wear and tear. For high end leather shoes Capa™ Thermoplastics plays an important role in shaping the quality and durability. This makes it an excellent alternative to Thermoplastics Polyurethanes (TPU’s), Thermoplastics Elastomers (TPE’s), EVA and plastic materials.
Outstanding footwear, outlasting performance
The adhesive properties of our Capa™ Thermoplastics ensure a strong and durable bond between the leather upper, the inner reinforcement material and the sole unit. The material properties of Capa™ Thermoplastics provide a tough, strong and reliable inner reinforcement. Due to their relatively low crystalline melting points, and excellent bonding properties to leather and other footwear materials, Capa™ Thermoplastics are perfect in shoe construction such as stiffeners. Capa™ Thermoplastics help to support outstanding footwear with outlasting performance.
