Urethane Rubber White Paper
Urethane is an extremely versatile elastomer that is applied particularly where highly stressed parts are subject to wear. Engineers and manufacturers regularly rely on a variety of urethane parts, ranging from the smallest bushings, bearings, and O-Rings to the materials used in agriculture, hydraulics, construction and other industries that our health, safety, and well-being depend upon every day.
Urethane has mechanical properties that can be isolated and manipulated through creative chemistry and are recognized for their outstanding versatility. The molecular makeup of urethane allows their properties to be adjusted throughout the manufacturing process. Urethane offers a flexible, broad spectrum of innovative materials for the most demanding of applications.
This paper helps explains the three different types of urethane and their benefits.
