Dynamic Load Bearing and Impact Resistance

You can find polyurethane carrying the load everywhere – from military vehicles to mining equipment, and from farm tractors to skateboards.
Polyurethane’s widespread utility derives from its elastomeric chemistry. Its molecular structure enables it to bear heavy loads and also to repeatedly deflect and recover to its original shape. In addition, its elasticity can absorb the force exerted by an impact or vibration.
Polyurethane is a great material for components that need to carry heavy loads, absorb shocks, or dampen vibration. Here are some examples:
Track pad for construction equipment
Heavy-duty caster wheel
Bearing pad used for highway bridges
Roller with bearing
Off-road vehicle suspension bushing
Component designed for stress relief from cyclic impacts
Suspension for vibrating mining equipment
No-crush wheel
