Why Use Polyurethane?
Polyurethane combines the elasticity of rubber with the durability of metal, making it the perfect material for a wide array of applications. The following are just a few of the major advantages of choosing polyurethane:
- Polyurethane is highly versatile and can be customised to be as hard or soft as you need it to be
- Polyurethane is a non-conductive and non-sparking material
- Polyurethane is easily mouldable and can be produced to allow for elastic memory
- Polyurethane is great for noise reduction
- Polyurethane is lightweight
- Polyurethane is cost-effective
One of the major advantages of choosing polyurethane is that it is extremely hard wearing, and won't be affected by elements that can damage plastic and metal components. Polyurethane is resistant to:
- Cuts and tears
- Dry heat
- Cold flow
- High impacts
Another huge benefit to choosing polyurethane is that specialised additives can be incorporated to better suit your specific needs. Among the additives we offer at Polymac are:
- Impregnated graphite: Reduces friction, increases service life and reduces service wear (typically used for truck suspension bushes)
- FRAS (Fire Resistant Anti Static): Frequently used for underground coal mines and tested by the Mine Safety Technology Centre
- Ceramics: Increases polyurethane wear resistance in abrasive environments (typically used for conveyor belt cleaners)
Our polyurethane products are available in a wide range of colours, including:
- Sky blue
Fluro and natural colours are available.
