Many industries are turning to urethane parts and products for a variety of applications. Polyurethane products deliver many unique advantages over conventional materials such as elastomers and plastics – they are stronger, tougher, more durable and versatile.
This blog post will highlight how the extensive benefits of polyurethane products serve a variety of industries.
Military applications demand materials that are capable of withstanding a wide range of severe conditions and extreme environments for extended time periods. Durability, high performance and reliability are of the utmost importance. Urethane technology has been the optimum choice for the military, due to strict guidelines and requirements.
Using cast urethane for metal forming press systems enables the aerospace industry to meet the complex shapes required by modern aircraft. In addition, custom urethane parts and products can withstand high forming pressures enabling production of more intricate shapes and an unvarying level of productivity.
3. Wet and Dry Food Processing:
The FDA approves specific urethane products for wet and dry food processing applications. Urethane products manufactured for the wet and dry food processing industry include rings, gaskets, scrapers, chute liners, tabletops and custom molded FDA approved items.
4. Die Cutting:
Custom urethane sheeting enables extreme precision and accuracy in keeping close tolerances, which are sought by die cutters around the world.
Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) utilize cast polyurethane products for prototype parts through production – which can be created from drawings, designs or sketches. In addition, custom-blended urethane elastomer formulations can be manufactured to achieve specific physical properties.
