What is Polyurethane made from?
Polyurethane is a unique material that offers the elasticity of rubber combined with the toughness and durability of metal. It can be manufactured in a variety of hardnesses ranging from rubber band soft to bowling ball hard.
It has been proven to outwear other materials, in particular when abrasion is a factor. It is vastly superior to rubber, plastics and metal in many applications.
What Industries is Polyurethane use in?
Polyurethane has a higher load bearing capacity than any conventional rubber. This makes it an ideal material for load wheels fitted to fork trucks etc, heavy duty couplings, metal forming pads, shock absorbing pads, machine mounts etc.
Polyurethane can be moulded into virtually any form given the correct moulds and tooling are used.
Is Polyurethane better than Rubber?
Should you have an abrasion issue regarding machine components resulting in expensive production down time, then replacing the part or parts manufactured in POLYURETHANE will in most cases solve the problem, thus reducing your operational costs.
