Why Do Companies Choose Polyurethane Fabrication?

Companies rely on polyurethane for automotive parts manufacturing, milling and mining, chemical processing, oil, and gas operations, and to construct durable plastic structures such as playground equipment.
But what makes polyurethane so popular? That’s because of its numerous benefits. Here’s a closer look at the advantages of using polyurethane.


Polyurethane’s molecular structure offers immense durability. Choosing polyurethane plastic is ideal when you need the impact resistance of polycarbonate combined with the chemical resistance of a semi-crystalline.
After the polyurethane fabrication process is complete, companies gain materials that can withstand considerable force. Whether another object collides with polyurethane or someone drops it, this material should withstand multiple types of impacts. Plus, polyurethane maintains a high vibration frequency. Because of this quality, polyurethane is incredibly resilient.

Resistant to Water and Chemicals

Businesses often choose polyurethane fabrication when they need materials to withstand liquid damage. For example, companies specializing in subsea-related industries often choose polyurethane for its ability to withstand water and the elements it contains.

Companies in manufacturing industries prefer polyurethane because it’s able to withstand various oils, weaker acids, weaker bases, and solvents.

Withstands Harsh Temperatures

Whether used indoors or outdoors, polyurethane can withstand moderately high temperatures. On average, thermoset polyurethane can endure temperatures ranging from -80 to 120 degrees Fahrenheit. Depending on the chemistry of polyurethane materials, some can withstand temperatures up to 300 degrees Fahrenheit.

A Great Replacement for Other Materials

You can use polyurethane material as a liner for other materials like sand or gravel. Companies also use this material to replace Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) parts shipped with rubber or other worn-down materials. Polyurethane is also an excellent substitute for metal, glass, and ceramic.
Polyurethane material offers excellent light transmission and abrasion resistance. It’s also capable of undergoing machining without sacrificing polyurethane’s dimensional stability. Polyurethane is also well-regarded as a material for its affordability.
