Understanding urethane

Polyurethane (PU) is an extremely versatile elastomer material that can be soft like rubber or hard like nylon. The mechanical properties can be manipulated using various chemistry formulations to provide solutions in an array of applications worldwide such as industrial rollers and wheels, oil and mining, agriculture, paper and corrugated, nuclear and more. Advantages of Polyurethane versus other materials can be viewed below:

  • Moldable to any shape or size
  • Quiet Performance
  • Corrosion Resistance
  • Durable and Resilient
  • Flexible
  • Abrasion Resistance
  • Non-Conductive
  • Non-Conductive
  • Used Polyurethane Roll and Wheel coverings can be stripped and reapplied saving you money on fabricating new hubs
