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 (eraser-soft to bowling-ball-hard), 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.
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. Polyurethanes 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.
