About Urethane

 

Urethane has become the material of choice in so many of today’s performance-driven applications because it exhibits extraordinary physical and mechanical properties that other materials simply can’t match.

In addition to being particularly resistant to abrasion, cutting, and tearing, urethane properties include tremendous flexibility. Polyurethanes come in a wide range of durometers and densities too, which means that finished components can be soft as a gum eraser or hard as a bowling ball. And, compared to alternative materials like neoprene, rubber, plastic, metal, and silicone, polyurethane components consistently exhibit longer part life which translates into fewer replacements, reduced labor costs, and less equipment downtime.

The most clever and efficient designs begin with the right materials. If you’re looking to build a component or assembly that performs better, lasts longer, or possesses conductive properties you never thought possible, start with urethane.

The fact is, urethane can be formulated to be stronger, faster, lighter, quieter, and cheaper than most alternative materials. So, if you’ve been looking for a better solution, urethane is a good start. If you’re looking for a breakthrough, MPC has the perfect mix.
