Our Thermoplastic Urethane (TPU) Outsole is the all-rounder, suiting most work environments. The main difference from the Nitrile Outsole is that the TPU Outsole is more lightweight and is heat resistant to 266ºF.
Most of our work boots come standard with a TPU Outsole. It’s very durable, providing a high tolerance against cuts, abrasion, splitting and cracking, as well as a high resistance to most oils and chemicals. The TPU Outsole also provides slip resistance for uneven and slippery surfaces.
All Steel Blue safety boots featuring our TPU Outsole comply with American Safety Footwear Certification ASTM F2413. Steel Blue Soft Toe work boots that feature a TPU Outsole comply with American Safety Footwear Certification ASTM F2892.
If you don’t require extreme heat protection, this is the lightweight Outsole you need for your work boots.
