What is cast Polyurethane:

Cast polyurethane is an elastic material that can be very soft (like rubber) or very hard (similar to a plastic like nylon). This versatility allows polyurethane to be utilized in many different application areas such industrial wheels and rollers, oilfield parts, mining, agriculture, and recreation. Below are the advantages of polyurethane versus other materials.

Urethane VS. Metal

  • Lightweight
  • Noise Reduction
  • Abrasion Resistance
  • Less Expensive Fabrication

  • Non-Conductive
  • Non-Sparking

Urethane VS. Plastic

  • High Impact Resistance
  • Elastic Memory
  • Abrasion Resistance
  • Noise Reduction
  • Variable Coefficient of Friction
  • Resilience
  • Thick Section Molding
  • Lower Cost Tooling
