Urethane Bars are a versatile product well suited for machining into custom items for various applications. Color options are red, black, and natural.

UUP's rods are made of tough, crack-resistant, and abrasion-resistant polyurethane, which lasts significantly longer than conventional rubbers and plastics. We provide custom diameters, lengths, hardness.

  • Urethane Characteristics:
  • TDI and MDI Chemical structure both are available. We can formulate our urethane for your specific application. Broad hardness ranging from 40 shore A to 90 shore A. Red, natural, and black are the standard and other colors are available upon request. Urethane is abrasion and cut resistant. Urethane is chemical and oil resistant. Urethane is machinable and resilient .Urethane has a lower tooling cost, has a high load bearing capacity and has elastic memory.

Advantages of Polyurethane Bar:

Polyurethane Bar is often used as a replacement for rubber components and provides an obvious upgrade over the traditional material. Polyurethane has a much improved resistance to wear and can out last other materials by as much as four times. Another advantage is the performance during load and compression, Polyurethane will out perform rubber which will often permanently deform much sooner resulting in the associated components, often vehicle suspension parts becoming loose and causing lack of control and often expensive damage. Its resistance to ageing or perishing, rubber will often degrade over sometimes a short period of time, but this can often be accelerated in UV exposure and the contact with oils and fuels. Polyurethane Bar is also much more resistant to cutting with sharp edges and is also much more impact resistant.

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, 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.
