Polyurethane

Introducing the AndurElite™ Prepolymer Series

For applications that require extra dynamic performance and abrasion resistance, the AndurElite™ prepolymer series is powered by the next generation of ultra high-performance aliphatic diisocyanate. It has a very linear and symmetrical structure with respect to the isocyanate groups, resulting in a highly crystalline hard-segment structure which provides ultra high-performance elastomer properties. Its “aliphatic” nature allows a light and color stable elastomer, which is exceptionally well suited for outdoor applications or for applications in extreme environments.

Polyurethane Product Guide

The Urethane Team at Anderson Development Company is dedicated to our customers. We can modify a current product to meet certain criteria or develop a new and innovative product that meets (or exceeds) your needs and requirements. If you’ve found yourself saying, “I like this product, but I wish...”, put us to work and we’ll do our best to solve the problem. Our technical and sales team has a combined 150 years of experience to help you achieve your goals.

Custom Systems Development

We can develop and sample custom prepolymers and curatives in a short time frame. In past years, we have developed approximately 30 experimental products each year which translates to greater than 2 every month. For prepolymers, we are able to do a wide variety of chemistries including conventional TDI, low free TDI, MDI, and aliphatic systems. Many attributes can be optimized such as pot life, demold time, grindability, viscosity, hardness, physical state (liquid vs. solid), resiliency, and compression set, just to name a few. We can also develop custom curatives to fit requirements like A:B ratio, viscosity, and physical properties.

Other Capabilities

When sampling different products, we are very versatile and responsive. From one quart to a couple of drums, our R&D and pilot plant facilities can cover any sample size needed. We also can make prototype parts in our applications lab which houses a large vortex mixer, two large ovens, and a large hot table. These facilities are there for serving your needs and we would be happy to accommodate. Our team is knowledgeable and experienced in many different casting techniques either by hand or machine, and we can help your company succeed in casting difficult parts. We can also analyze and identify unknown urethane materials you may want to know about or mimic. Many times we will analyze known parts that maybe have failed in the field and do some failure analysis. Quite often a stoichiometric problem is found that is simple to determine by doing X-ray fluorescence on the part. We can perform a wide spectrum of physical testing including dynamic mechanical analysis (DMA), thermomechanical analysis (TMA), thermogravimetric analysis (TGA), and rotary drum abrasion. So, if a new opportunity arises, or you just want to change a good product into a better product, give us a call.
