Exhibit outstanding mechanical and physical properties in comparison with other elastomers. Urethanes provide outstanding resistance to abrasion and tear and have the highest available tensile strength among all elastomers while providing good elongation characteristics.
Ether based urethanes (EU) are directed toward low temperature flexibility applications. The ester based urethanes (AU) provide improved abrasion, heat, and oil swell resistance.
Advantages & Application :
Temperature range of -40°C to +82°C (-40°F to +180°F)
High Tensile strength
Resistant to petroleum based oils, hydrocarbon fuels, oxygen, ozone and weathering.
The inherent toughness and abrasion resistance of polyurethane makes it desirable in hydraulic systems where high pressures, shock loads, wide metal tolerances, or abrasive contamination is anticipated.
