            Advantages of Using Urethane

            Polyurethane is a unique material that offers the elasticity of rubber combined with the toughness and durability of metal. Polyurethane is up to five times stronger than rubber. Because urethane is available in a very broad hardness range, it allows the engineer to replace rubber, plastic, and metal with the ultimate in abrasion resistance and physical properties. Polyurethane can reduce plant maintenance and OEM product cost. Many applications using this ultra-tough material have cut down-time, maintenance time, and cost of parts to a fraction of the previous figures.

            Urethane has become a common replacement for popular materials like plastic and rubber. Its ability to hold up against abrasions and heavy wear and tear is just one of the things that make urethane useful. The following are other advantages polyurethane has to offer:

              • High heat resistance (up to 200 degrees Fahrenheit)
              • Abrasion resistance
              • Dampens noise and vibration
              • Cost-effective
              • Lightweight and easy to transport
              • High load-bearing capacity
              • Oil and solvent resistant
              • Tear resistant
              • Flex-Life
              • Standard urethane bumpers sheet stock sizes available
              • High resistance to abrasion and impact
              • Resistant to many chemical compounds

                  Why Use Polyurethane?

                  A resilient, tough material, polyurethane can outperform rubber and steel for abrasion resistance and can be injection molded, to any shape. Polyurethanes have exceptional damping abilities to control shock and lessen noise and vibration in the most arduous conditions.

                  • Outstanding high wear abrasion resistance
                  • Good low temperature flexibility and impact resistance
                  • Low compression set
                  • Good hydrolytic stability
                  • High compressive strength
                  • Low gas and vapor permeability, relatively high moisture vapor transmission rates
                  • Low extractable levels
                  • Ability to be painted without the use of primers
                  • High resistance to oils, greases, oxygen and ozone

                    Advantages of Polyurethane Flat Sheet Stock

                    Polyurethane Sheet is often used as a replacement for rubber components and provides an obvious upgrade over the traditional material. Polyurethane absorbing pads has a much-improved resistance to wear and can out last other materials by as much as four times.

                    Another advantage is the performance during load and compression, Polyurethane will out perform rubber which will often permanently deform much sooner resulting in the associated components, often vehicle suspension parts becoming loose and causing lack of control and often expensive damage. Its resistance to ageing or perishing, rubber will often degrade over sometimes a short period of time, but this can often be accelerated in UV exposure and the contact with oils and fuels.

                    Polyurethane Bumpers is also much more resistant to cutting with sharp edges as well as much more impact resistant.

                    Urethane flat bumper pad stock can be used to cut out small volume parts for trials and prototyping. Smaller pads can be cut from our stock pads along with longer strips used for bumpers, pads, and protective surfaces. The Polyurethane flat stock can also be easily cut with a water jet to produce low to mid volute quantities of parts without investing in a costly tool.
