FAQs for Polyurethane Casting & Moulding

Polyurethane (PU) is a versatile polymer that combines the rigidity of plastics with the elasticity of rubbers. It is used in a variety of applications due to its durability, abrasion resistance, and ability to be formulated in a wide range of hardnesses and colours.

Polyurethane can be categorised into two main types: polyester-based (AU) and polyether-based (EU). Polyester PUs are generally more durable, while polyether PUs offer better resistance to water and humidity.

Polyurethane mouldings are used in a wide range of applications, including abrasion-resistant coatings, gaskets, haul-off pads, hoses, seals, and moulded diaphragms. They are particularly valued in the automotive, aerospace, and oil and gas industries.

Yes, polyurethane mouldings can be used outdoors. They are highly resistant to weather conditions, including exposure to sunlight, ozone, and a wide range of temperatures.

Polyurethane offers high abrasion resistance, good tensile strength, excellent tear resistance, and chemical resistance to petroleum-based fuels and oils. It also has good electrical insulating properties, making it suitable for a variety of industrial applications.

Polyurethane is less resistant to strong acids, alkalis, and some solvents. Polyester-based PUs can be affected by hot water and high humidity, making them less suitable for such environments. Additionally, they may not be ideal for applications requiring high compression set resistance.

Polyurethane mouldings typically perform well in temperatures ranging from -40°C to +90°C, with some formulations able to handle short-term exposures up to 120°C.

Yes, polyurethane can be easily coloured during the casting process. This allows for customisation to meet specific aesthetic and functional requirements.
