Polyurethane Thermoplastic Polymer
Polyurethane thermoplastics are extremely versatile and can be formulated to provide wide-ranging characteristics. Polyurethane is available in durometers from 10-15 Shore A (softer than a pencil eraser) to 90 Shore D (hard as a golf ball). It exhibits excellent wear and abrasion resistance, and remains highly elastic and impact resistant, even at the hardest durometers or in extremely low temperatures.
Polyurethane offers excellent resilience—even the hardest polyurethanes can be formulated for rebound values up to 70%. These thermoplastic materials exhibit excellent dielectric properties, little to no water absorption, and are highly resistant to oil, grease, chemicals, and radiation. Polyurethanes can be formulated to withstand continuous use at temperatures as high as 248°F (120°C).
Injection Molding with Polyurethane Thermoplastics
Stack Plastics is a leading provider of injection molded polyurethane parts and components.
