PU - Polyuretán

Compare material
Other material names PU: PU, Polyuretán, Polyurethane
Material group: 

Polyurethanes (also known as PUR or UR) are versatile engineering materials designed to provide properties not available in conventional rubbers, metals and plastics. Typically they have higher oil and solvent resistance, along with greater abrasion and tear resistance. Impact strength, low compression set and superior load bearing capacity are also important engineering characteristics.

Polyurethane sheet, rod and tube is extremely abrasion resistant and can be custom cast in a wide range of sizes, shore hardnesses and colours.

Typical applications: 
  • linings, scrapers,
  • gaskets and machined components
  • specialist seals, spacers and machined into components
The material is used in: 
Beverage industry
Electrotechnical industry
Automobile industry
Wood processing
Engineering industry
Steel industry
Paper industry
Mining and storage of ores
Construction machines
