A polymer created from combining compound units with urethane; this material is very diverse and can be used for the manufacturing of many different projects. Some of the qualities of polyurethane include high chemical resistance, flexibility and oil resistance. Typical uses for manufacturing Polyurethane are for machinery and other products.
Polyurethane formulations cover an extremely wide range of stiffness, hardness, and densities. These materials include:
- Hard solid plastics used as electronic instrument bezels and structural parts
- Flexible plastics used as straps and bands
- Cast and injection molded components for various markets — i.e., agriculture, military, automotive, industrial, etc.
Widely used in high resiliency electrical potting compounds, seals, gaskets, and hard plastic parts (such as for electronic instruments).
