Elastocast® polyurethanes as a two-component, custom-formulated cold cure elastomer systems can be used for a variety of applications. Elastocast® polyurethanes as custom-formulated, hot-cast elastomer systems are well-suited for demanding applications, such as coated conveyor belts, dead-blow hammers and forklift tires.
Key Advantages of Elastocast®
- Higher impact resistance than most plastics and many metals
- Versatility and design freedom
- High strength properties while retaining its elasticity
- Durable and resistant
- Pourable system
- Processing characteristics can be adjusted to meet your specific requirements
Elastocast® polyurethanes as hot-cast elastomer systems when processed at high temperatures (around 170°F), these polyurethanes display high-strength properties, while retaining elasticity.
Their durability and resilience make hot-cast elastomers well-suited for demanding applications, such as bumper pads, coated conveyor belts, dead-blow hammers, drive belts, forklift tires and wheels. They can be submitted to load and can be compressed.
Due to the combination of valuable properties, they bridge the gaps between plastics, rubbers and metals. Urethanes have the stiffness of plastics, the low coefficient friction of nylon, the low compression set of synthetic and natural rubber, and a higher impact resistance than most plastics—and even many metals.
Elastocast® offers versatility and design freedom. The physical properties, cure profile and processing characteristics can be adjusted to meet a customer's specific requirements.
Elastocast® polyurethanes as cold cure elastomer systems,can range in hardness from the shore "OO" scale to the shore "D" scale and can be used for a variety of applications. The physical properties, cure profile and processing characteristics can be adjusted to meet a customer's specific requirements.
