POLYURETHANEPolyurethane shapes are typically available in sheet, tube, and rod configurations with formulations covering an extremely wide range of stiffness, hardness and densities, and include low-density flexible and rigid foams, soft elastomers and hard solid plastics. Unique features include superior tear and abrasion resistance, substrate adhesive abilities, excellent load bearing and flex fatigue, and compression resistance. Polyurethane products are often cost-effective when compared to extrusion or injection molding processes due to their small production run capabilities. The material competes alongside traditional steel, aluminum, ceramic and rubber materials.
Polyurethane materials can be fabricated, machined and thermoformed and have the ability to be UL, FDA, and/or RoHS compliant. Piedmont offers a multitude of polyurethane products in sheet, tube, and rod shapes for various markets and applications.
