|Urethane elastomers have seen
increased popularity for industrial applications for a number
of reasons including:
• Versatility – although
considered part of the rubber family of elastic polymers, urethane
resins begin as liquids and can be cast, or molded, into almost
any shape or size.
• Hardness – urethane
polymers can be formulated to produce a wide range of hardnesses,
from a pliable consistency similar to common rubber, to a strength
reminiscent of concrete.
• Abrasion resistence –
formulated correctly, urethane offers improved abrasion resistance
versus rubber and steel.
• Environmental compatibility –
urethane can perform better in many chemical, corrosive, and
low temperature environments.
• Performance – urethane
can withstand repeated flexing and bear heavier loads, while
weighing less, producing less noise in operation, and offering
superior compatibility with electrical currents.
