America's Choice for Custom Converted Materials
Polyurethane compounds possess an extraordinary combination of physical, mechanical, and environmental properties. Combining the outstanding properties of rigid plastic, metals, and rubbers, a superior viscoelastic polymer was born. It has the shock absorbing properties of rubber coupled with the tear resistance of plastic.
The most outstanding properties are:
· Excellent resilience
· Extra toughness and durability
· Very high load bearing and cut resistance
· Low compression set
· Very good impact resistance
· Excellent abrasion resistance
· Oil, solvent and water resistance
Polyurethane can be used in a temperature range from –20°F to +200°F.
Temperature Range: –20°F to +200°F
