Under "The Belt and Road", the China shoe materials import is very good. "The Belt and Road" has been proposed for more than four years, and more countries have participated in it. At present, it has received responses and support from more than 100 countries and international organizations in the world. Since "The Belt and Road" initiative was put forward, the trade and economic exchanges between the purchasing countries along the line and China have become increasingly frequent, and the Chinese footwear market has become a hot spot in the overseas market. Oulian company engage in China import service for more than 10 years, we are specialize in China shoe materials import, here to introduce outsole import from China service we provide.
Types of Outsole import from China:
The outsoles for dress shoes for both men's and women's dress shoes are made out of high-quality leather and rubber. Casual, everyday shoes or work shoes have outsoles that are made from materials like natural rubber or polyurethane. The outsole can be comprised of the same material or different types. For example, an all-leather sole is a standard feature of the dress shoe, but it doesn't offer the most traction.
The shoe's purpose also plays into the materials used in the outsole. Athletic shoes are designed with various types of outsoles depending on how the shoe will be used. Shoes used for soccer, football, track, baseball, and golf are embedded with cleats or spikes to provide traction. Other athletic shoes, like basketball shoes, wrestling shoes, and climbing shoes are outfitted with rubber soles for greater grip.
Types of outsole import from China used for safety footwear are:
PVC is a thermoplastic material generally found in rubber boots, the outsoles made with this material usually have very good resistance to strong chemical agents like acids. It has good cold resistance from -5 to max -20 degrees but not really to high temperatures, maximum 100 degrees.
PU MONO (SINGLE) DENSITY. PU is the abbreviation for polyurethane. It has a good resistance to chemical agents and hydrocarbons, but no resistance to strong acids. The resistance to extreme temperatures goes from -10/-20 to +130 max 140 degrees . RECOMMENDED USAGE: indoor and not very aggressive work places.
PU/PU: (an injection molded outsole) is a double-density profile sole made of PU. The resistance to temperatures goes from -10/20 to 120 max 150 degrees . The average loss of weight is about 60/80mm3 for single density polyurethane. It is antistatic and has acceptable slip resistance. RECOMMENDED USAGE: indoor and outdoor, not really suggested for contact with chemical agents.
PU/TPU: (an injection molded outsole). TPU, thermoplastic polyurethane is a special type of polyurethane (PUR/PU). It is particularly sturdy, abrasion-resistant and flexible. TPU therefore provides higher performance: abrasion resistance, slip resistance at a very good level. Not very resistant to high temperatures (maximum 100 degrees), the abrasion resistance is about 50 to 80mm3. RECOMMENDED USAGE: indoor and outdoor, cold weather, not really suggested for contact with hot surfaces.
MONO DENSITY RUBBER: (generally an injection molded outsole). Non-vulcanised caoutchouc stinks and is not resistant to cold temperatures, so it is submitted to a vulcanization process which makes it very resistant. Rubber outsoles are exceptionally sturdy: temperature-resistant from -30 up to 300°C, hard to penetrate from sharp objects and resistant to fuel, oil, microbes and numerous chemicals. However, rubber is heavier than PU and TPU, and is less flexible when submitted to cold temperatures. The abrasion resistance of rubber is from 100 to 130mm3. RECOMMENDED USAGE: It is a compact and heavy material so it is not the best choice if you need extremely light footwear.
PU/RUBBER: (generally an injection molded outsole). Keeping the properties of rubber for the outsole, in this type of outsole the midsole is of PU so the footwear is lighter. The PU in this case is the weak point in the toughest situations where rubber's performances are better. RECOMMENDED USAGE: indoor and outdoor, in contact with hydrocarbons, chemicals, acids. It is a compact and heavy material, so to make it lighter it is joined with PU.
EVA/RUBBER: EVA is elastic and tear- and slip-resistant. When used to make shoes, EVA is used as cushioning material in the midsole. However, nowadays EVA is also used for creating midsoles in safety footwear, placed in cemented outsoles between the upper and the outsole (usually rubber). RECOMMENDED USAGE: indoor and outdoor, in contact with hydrocarbons, chemicals, acids. It is a compact and heavy material, so to make it lighter it is joined with EVA.
