Advantages of Polyurethane Round Rod Stock:

Polyurethane Round Rod Stock is often used as a replacement for plastic/nylon components and provides an obvious upgrade over the traditional material. Polyurethane has a much improved resistance to wear and can out last nylon by as much as four times. Another advantage is the performance during load and compression, Polyurethane will out perform nylong and plastic which will often crack while being used. Urethane rod stock is as easy to machine as plastic and offers a wider variety of hardness choices.

Advantages of Polyurethane:

Polyurethane is a unique material that offers the elasticity of rubber combined with the toughness and durability of metal. Because urethane is available in a very broad hardness range, it allows the engineer to replace rubber, plastic, nylon, and metal with the ultimate in abrasion resistance and physical properties. Polyurethane can reduce plant maintenance and OEM product cost. Many applications using this ultra-tough material have cut down-time, maintenance time, and cost of parts to a fraction of the previous figures. The following are other advantages polyurethane has to offer:

  • Abrasion resistant
  • Oil and solvent resistant
  • Load bearing capacity
  • Tear resistant
  • Excellent noise abatement properties
  • Flex-Life

Urethanes have better abrasion and tear resistance than rubbers, while offering higher load bearing capacity.

Compared to plastics, urethanes offer superior impact resistance, while offering excellent wear properties and elastic memory.

Urethanes have replaced metals in sleeve bearings, wear plates, sprockets, rollers, and various other parts, with benefits such as weight reduction, noise abatement, and wear improvements being realized.
