Abrasion and Wear Resistance
You will find polyurethane standing up to the harshest abrasive environments – from agriculture to mining, and from construction to oil and gas.
Polyurethane’s widespread utility comes from its elastomeric chemistry. It’s molecular structure enables it to withstand sliding, impingement, and slurry abrasion. Polyurethane resists tearing associated with sliding. And it absorbs and recovers from particle impacts seen during impingement or in slurry. More about abrasion resistance ›
Polyurethane is a great material for components that need a long wear life in abrasive environments. Here are some examples:
