Polyurethane

Why polyurethane materials are in high use & demand

The big key to polyurethane materials is versatility. Polythers perform extremely well as part of any application that is subject to dynamic stress. They provide many advantages including: resilience, high tear resistance, low viscosity and low heat build-up.

The benefits of polyurethane products and materials:

  • Hardness
  • Abrasion resistant
  • Dry heat tolerant
  • Tolerant to low temperatures
  • High load bearing capability
  • Impact resistant
  • Will not degrade when exposed to oxygen or ozone
  • Mildew, fungus and mould resistant
  • Flame, radiation and water resistant
  • Will not degrade in contact with chemicals, oil or grease
  • Excellent bonding capabilities
  • Excellent flex properties including high tear and tensile strength
Can be used for a number of applications including noise reduction, insulation and more...
