POLYURETHANE

Polyurethane elastomers are extremely versatile materials that can be manufactured to suit individual needs to meet a range of demanding applications. It has a high coefficient of friction; excellent grip properties. It is very easy to mould.

Polyurethane exhibits excellent compression properties and excellent tear strength with good mechanical properties.

 

Provides high elongation with high tensile strength and exceptional resilience. It offers superior load bearing compared to rubber.

It is extremely flexible, has good working temperature range and has good chemical resistance but is not recommended for use with strong acids and alkalis. It does however have good resistance to the effects of oxygen and ozone.

 

It also has excellent sound attenuation properties therefore offers great noise reduction.
