Polyurethane Elastomers are extremely versatile materials great for use in a wide range of different applications. This flexible material is available in Polyurethane sheet and Rod.
There are four types of Polyurethane sheet:
Polyether / TDI
Polyether / MDI
Polyester / TDI
Polyester / MDI
Polyether’s are recommended for applications where parts undergo dynamic stress.
They have advantages in resilience, low temperature performance and resistance to water attack (hydrolysis).
Polyester based urethanes have a superior cut, tear, abrasion, oil and solvent resistance.
MDI based products have superior hydrolysis resistance and higher resilience.
TDI based products are less sensitive to moisture, have shorter demould times and lower cure temperature requirements compared to MDI types.
Polyurethane Sheet and Rod grades available:
Toughness – Tensile Strength
High Load Bearing Ability
High Tear Resistance
Resistance to water, oil and grease
