        Advantages Of 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. 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

        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.
