The durometer range from Shore A to Shore D can be selected for your application. Softer applications such as tires or erasers fall under Shore A and have lower durometers and higher rebound, whereas applications like bowling balls and cart tires have higher durometers and fall under Shore D. No matter the durometer, polyurethane can hold up against the elements and against wear and tear.

    Why Use Polyurethane?

    Polyurethane is a unique material that offers the elasticity of rubber combined with the toughness and durability of metal. 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.

    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
    • Oil and solvent resistant
    • Load bearing capacity
    • Tear resistant
    • Excellent noise abatement properties
    • Flex-Life

    Urethanes have better abrasion and tear resistance than rubbers, while offering higher load bearing capacity.

    Compared to plastics, urethanes offer superior impact resistance, while offering excellent wear properties and elastic memory.

    Urethanes have replaced metals in sleeve bearings, wear plates, sprockets, rollers, and various other parts, with benefits such as weight reduction, noise abatement, and wear improvements being realized.

    Benefits of Polyurethane

    Advantages of Polyurethane Drops

    Polyurethane Rod is often used as a replacement for rubber components and provides an obvious upgrade over the traditional material. Polyurethane 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 drops are also much more resistant to cutting with sharp edges as well as much more impact resistant.

    Urethane drop stock can be used as an inexpensive substitute for prototypes. This material can be easily and inexpensively machined to make small amount of bushings, washers, spacers, and bumpers. This avoids having to invest in a costly mold for small volume items.
