What are Polyurethane Cast Elastomer Systems?
Polyurethane Cast Elastomers are materials which can be stretched and will recover instantaneously on release. To produce cast elastomers, polyurethane systems are poured into moulds. The components are thoroughly mixed. The components could be liquid or melted before mixing to produce cast elastomers. As for all polyurethanes, the mixtures start reacting together when they are mixed, and continue to mix in the mould as well. Eventually, the component gets enough strength to be removed from the mould. Post processing may be required.
Uses of Polyurethane Cast Elastomer Systems
Cast polyurethanes combine some of the performance advantages of high-tech plastics, metals and ceramics along with the resiliency and flexibility of rubber. The versatility of polyurethane cast elastomers provides the ability to achieve an optimum set of physical properties required for a specific application. This flexibility of properties allows urethane cast elastomers to be tailor-made for use in some of the most demanding industries and markets.
