Polyurethane

Polyurethane indicates a large family of thermosetting polymers, composed of two main components: polyol and isocyanate.
Durable, functional, versatile, insulating, it can be varnished and integrated with any material,  giving a great technical and aesthetical performance.
The excellent smoothness and uniformity make it very fit and appropriate to manufacture large or very thick products.
Furthermore, using alloy moulds it lowers production costs for medium size quantities, making rigid polyurethane technology very competitive, compared to other injection moulding.


Features:

 • offers excellent resistance to mechanical stress
 • has a good surface hardness
 • becomes highly resistant to fire if treated with halogen-free fire retardants
 • it does not 'suffer' exposure to weather agents
 • shape does not deform if reinforced
 • ensures chemical inertness in contact with many organic and inorganic substances (including most    common acids)
 • has excellent electrical and thermal insulation
 • can be coated  with any type of varnish, even conductive ones
 •  metal inserts can be implemented during moulding
 • disposable as  non-hazardous material


Polyurethane is a versatile polymer with insulating properties that allows a wide range of very different applications.
Many items essential to our daily use are manufactured with family members of polyurethanes.  Semi-rigid polyurethane
Automotive industry, safety applications (steering wheels, toys)
Flexible polyurethane
Furniture foam fillings, cars, toys
Compact polyurethane and elastomer
Shoe soles, sporting goods, yarns (lycra), running tracks
Rigid structural polyurethane
Very resistant material, not deformable, durable, suitable for mass moulding of car bodies, structural bodies, self-supporting structures and components with applications in all industries.
Special Polyurethanes
Medical Applications (heart valves, prothesies, filters for hemodialysis, surgical gloves, blood bags)
