Polyurethane is abbreviated to PUR
Polyurethane is abbreviated to PUR, as it is also often referred to. It is a common name for a group of cellular plastic materials that contain urethane bonds.
It is a material available in many variations in density, stiffness and foaming. This means that the application possibilities are almost inexhaustible. From insulation to toys, and not least furniture.
The mechanical properties, such as abrasion and tensile strength, as well as elasticity, are excellent and vary depending on the composition of the material.
The material is also sometimes called Vulkollan.
We get our Polyurethane from a European partner that delivers a very high quality.
Many good properties of polyurethanes / PURs
Polyurethane / Pur has many good properties. It has excellent abrasion resistance, good tear and tensile strength, and, depending on the composition, a high shock absorption. It is available, as mentioned, in many variations, different density, different hardnesses and flexibility.
The great advantages of this material are:
- High chemical resistance
- Great flexibility
- High wear resistance
- Good friction
- Low weight
Applications for Polyurethane
There are countless uses for polyurethane. It is an obvious type of rubber for vulcanization on steel workpieces and is also ideal for use on large and complicated workpieces. It can be used for demanding tasks with very high load and can be used from -50 up to 120 ° C. At the same time, the material is also available in variations that are suitable for food contact.
The rubber type is often used for the following:
- Spring elements
- Shock-absorbing elements
- Roller coatings
- Wear plates
- Snow plows
And much more.
