What is polyurethane?

Polyurethane (PU) is an important family of polymers which has many applications. You will get in touch with it every day, without being aware of it. At home and in the office. During sports and holiday. In short: polyurethane is one of the most versatile materials in the world. Polyurethane makes our lives easier, more comfortable and environmentally friendly.

The most special thing about polyurethane is that products can be cast in all possible shapes. Very complex products, such as three dimensional products: no problem. Hollow products? PU makes it all possible!

Ok. But what is polyurethane?

‘But what is polyurethane?’ you might still think. Besides knowing that it is a ‘family of polymers’, you may not have become much wiser. Let us try and explain it as simple as possible and in only one sentence:

 

Polyurethane is a rubbery plastic.

We can also explain it to you in a more technical way:

Polyurethane has the strength of plastic and the elasticity of rubber.

What are the properties of PU?

Polyurethane offers more possibilities than rubber or plastics. Because the raw material is liquid, polyurethane properties can be influenced. Consider this liquid raw material as a ‘soup’ , where you can add other ingredients. That’s how you can serve another dish every time. The options are endless. If we translate this to polyurethane, you can think about hard, soft, flexible, tough, light materials and different colours. Also various additives can be added to polyurethane, such as: flame retardants, UV protectors, MoS2, steel- and aluminum powders, PTFE, glass, graphite and chalk. Anything is possible!

What is polyurethane used for?

Polyurethane products make our lives easier. You will get in touch with it every day. Because the material is so versatile, you will encounter it in many different shapes. In the list below you will see in what way you can encounter PU daily:

  • car parts
  • carpolish
  • protective layers
  • building insulation
  • coatings
  • insulation for refrigerators and freezers
  • adhesives
  • mattresses
  • upholstery
  • manhole covers
  • soles
  • funnels
  • paint
  • floors
  • wheels and tires

 

This list grows every day. Daily new products and applications are invented for polyurethane. Would you like to know more about possible applications of PU in our daily lives?

Bekleden van complexe producten, zonder malkosten

Bekleden zonder malkostenKleine en grote producten, lastige vormen: we bekleden ze allemaal. Maar het bekleden van complexe producten is toch wel één van onze specialiteiten.

Het stalen T-stuk op de afbeelding hiernaast is inwendig bekleedt met witte polyurethaan, 75 Shore A hardheid. Dit product is onderdeel van een cycloon voor abrasieve materialen. De PU bekleding zorgt voor een verhoging van de slijtvastheid en geluidsreductie.

Onze bekledingstechnologie biedt veel mogelijkheden. Zo kunnen we een complexe vorm als deze bekleden, zonder daar een mal voor te moeten produceren. Het grote voordeel voor u als klant: geen malkosten! Bij deze technologie gieten we het polyurethaan ‘aan’. Dit is mogelijk tot een wanddikte van 15 mm in verschillende kleuren en hardheden.

Heeft u interesse het laten bekleden van een complex product? Neem dan vooral contact op met onze verkoopafdeling!

Polargard™: Super polyurethane lining product

Polargard-Canvas

Polarttech offers a super lining product in its product range: Polargard™. This is a hard-wearing polyurethane sheeting material with a backing with an open structure, enabling the Polargard™ plate to be bonded to sheet steel products like vibrating hoppers and chutes.

In 2012, we had synthetic backing materials made and we also performed extensive tests for casting-on polyurethane. This resulted in a unique product which we call Polargard. Besides this PolargardCanvas variety, we also offer Polargard with a steel inlay. This sheeting material can be attached by bolting/screwing to different surfaces.
