For engineers, meeting part design challenges can be exceedingly difficult when traditional materials like plastic, steel, and rubber do not possess the required specialized characteristics, lack the versatility to be adapted, cannot be economically produced, or do not readily bond with other materials or system components. As a solution to some of today’s complex design challenges, engineers are turning to high-performance polyurethane elastomers. These tough, elastic materials retain their original shape for a long service life, while offering a number of unique properties and capabilities. Here are five key points that make a strong case for why urethane is providing engineers with the design flexibility they need to produce cost-effective parts that meet ever more demanding design specifications.
