Polyurethane, or Urethane, is a unique material that offers the elasticity of rubber combined with the toughness and durability of metal. Because urethane is available in a very broad hardness range (flexible-soft to rigid-hard), it allows the engineer to replace rubber, plastic and metal with the ultimate in abrasion resistance and physical properties.

Polyurethane can reduce plant maintenance and OEM product cost. Many applications using this ultra-tough material have cut down-time, maintenance time and cost of parts to a fraction of the previous figures. Polyurethane can be cast to size or to print using a mold. It is available in a wide range of colors and hardnesses.


  • Superior cut and abrasion resistance
  • Ability to "self-heal"
  • Can be formulated to possess specific properties (i.e. coefficient of friction, resiliency and compression set can be formulated high or low.
  • Excellent resistance to ozone and aging
  • Can be molded and bonded to a variety of substrates
  • Resistant to many oils and solvents
  • Lightweight
  • Outstanding low temperature properties
