Polyurethane (PU)

  • Polyurethane is an extremely versatile elastomer used in countless applications worldwide. 
  • The physical properties of polyurethane are considerable. Polyurethane performs well for hardness, tensile strength, compression strength, impact resistance, abrasion resistance, and tear strength.
  • Polyurethane routinely outperforms plastic, rubber, and steel in its overall ability to resist harsh environmental factors such as abrasion, heat, solvents, oil, and acid. 
  • Hydex® 202 is a totally rigid polyurethane resin that exhibits a broad range of chemical resistance, as well as superior impact and excellent mechanical properties. It can be used for any mechanical application that requires a combination of toughness, dimensional stability, and chemical resistance, with an ability to withstand a chemical attack in a PH range from 2 to 14.
  • Hydex® 301 is a totally rigid, clear polyurethane resin. It combines excellent clarity when polished and has a broad range of chemical resistance as well as outstanding practical toughness.

Key Properties:

  • Wide range of hardness.
  • High load-bearing capacity.
  • High abrasion and impact resistance.
  • High tear resistance.
  • Resistance to water, oil, and grease.
  • Good electrical insulating properties.
  • Very resistant to temperature extremes.
  • Mold, mildew, and fungus resistance.
