Ever since its invention in the late 1930s, polyurethane (PU) has proven to be a tremendously useful material that is adaptable to an extensive range of forms and functions. This multipurpose elastomer has mechanical properties that can be isolated and engineered to be used as solid, liquid, or foam products.Read More
Advantages of Polyurethane
If you work in an industry which depends on cast and injection molded components, like rubber manufacturing, you would know well about the resilience and durability of polyurethane. It has become such an indispensable material because it combines the elasticity of rubber and rigidity and strength of plastic.
Polyurethane can possess multiple levels of hardness, a high-load capacity in both compression and tension, and perform extremely well when utilized in high-flexibility fatigue applications. As a result, it is the perfect material for applications that require resistance to impact, abrasion, or high tear.
Pitfalls to Avoid in Designing Components
Over the last 40+ years, our engineers have identified certain pitfalls that must be avoided when you are designing polyurethane parts and components:
- Jagged/pointed angles in the PU which tend to focus stresses in a section
- Jagged/pointed corners at edges of bonded sections
- Jagged edges or sharp lips which would magnify or cut stress concentration
- Designs which don’t allow natural shaping of the PU when under a load
- Complex components which have many points of stress concentration (plus, they require expensive molds)
