Polyurethane

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.
