Elastomers

Unlocking Innovation: Explore Polymer Materials Information and Resources

Rubber and polyurethane elastomers are two of the cornerstones in the vast kingdom of flexible materials. Rubber, a natural wonder tapped from the bark of trees, has been humanity’s stretchy sidekick for centuries, serving myriad purposes from erasers to car tires. It’s famed for its remarkable elasticity, resilience, and ability to return to its original shape after deformation.

Enter the scene: polyurethane elastomers, or PUs, the modern marvels synthesised from diisocyanates and polyols. These are the customisable champs of the elastomer world, tailor-made to offer a blend of elasticity and durability. PUs can range from soft and squishy foams to tough and wear-resistant solids, showcasing their adaptability. While rubber boasts its natural pedigree and time-tested reliability, polyurethane elastomers flaunt their versatile attributes, proving indispensable in areas where customisation is key. T

ogether, these two elastomers paint a picture of the old meeting the new, of nature’s gifts harmonising with human ingenuity. Whether it’s the bounce in a basketball, the cushion in a car seat, or the protective layer on a conveyor belt, the silent elasticity of rubber and polyurethane elastomers plays a pivotal role in making our world both comfortable and functional.
