Durable, castable urethanes for OEM
These compounds are made for OEM applications such as strain relief, potting and encapsulating, forming nonscratching holding fixtures and edging and sealing felt belts and dryer fabric in the paper industry. The urethanes are castable, nonshrinking and waterproof, resisting abrasion, vibration, and temperature cycling indoors or out. They can take service temperatures up to 350F, but can cure at room temperature. They put out no VOC emissions, come in several viscosities with cured hardnesses from Shore A 78 (or lower with Flex-Add™ additive) to Shore A 97, tensile strengths to 3300 psi, tear resistances to 515 pli, and dielectric strengths to 350V/mil. The company's Flex-Add product can make Flexane 80 more flexible, and Flexane Accelerator can shorten curing times, even at temperatures as low as 30F.
