   Baak Sole Technology Different materials for different needs Outsole materials Nitrile rubber The outsoles made of nitrile rubber are highly resistant to oils, fuels, many acids and faeces. They are very slip-resistant, robust and durable and have an excellent abrasion behaviour. In addition, they can be heat-resistant up to 300°C. Nitrile rubber outsoles are a little heavier than PU outsoles. Therefore, Baak combines them with particularly lightweight midsole materials in most cases. Nitrile outsoles with a rough lug tread are especially well suited for use in areas with sharp-edged splinters of glass and cuttings on the floor. PU: polyurethane Outsoles made of polyurethane, like nitrile rubber outsoles, are resistant to oils, fuels and certain chemicals. They are more lightweight than rubber and have good damping properties. They are heat-resistant up to 120°C and flexible at low temperatures up to -30°C. TPU: thermoplastic polyurethane Thermoplastic polyurethane is a special PU. It has the same positive properties and some more advantages such as a better abrasion behaviour, bending endurance and slip resistance. Outsole design Outsoles with the BAAK® go&relax system allow the feet to bend naturally in the area of the basic toe joints. This is guaranteed by the BAAK® flex zone – which is specially integrated in the outsole – in combination with the BAAK® flex cap and the H-coupling element. Outsoles with BAAK® flex zone from the Baak Sports light and Baak Industrial and Baak Bau natural bending line The BAAK® flex zone allows the feet to bend naturally.                             103     BAAK Know-How
