PurPartner designs, develops and manufactures products in foamed polyurethane (baydur, flex integral) and solid polyurethane (elastomers, vulkolan) in both ether and ester and also various hybrid materials.
Polyurethane, PUR, is a collective name for a large number of materials with varying properties.
Other common names are urethane plastic, polyether foam, polyester foam, cold foam, foam, foam, rigid or hard foam, urethane foam, polyurethane elastomer, polyurethane rubber. Common abbreviations: PUR, RIM, RRIM, TPE, TPU.
The name of the polyurethane varies widely, each manufacturer using its own brand on its polyurethane quality e.g.
Hyperlast®, Vibrathane®, Royalcast®, Weartec®, Baytec®, Desmodur®, PurElastic®, Elasturan®, Adiprene®, Elastocoat®, Ureflex®, Imuthane®, Vollflex®, Versathane®, Eladip®, Monothane®, Castomer®, Elastollan®, MP Bayflex®, Slitan® och Rotakote®.
Polyurethane has superior properties that seal, dampen, protect and insulate and is used for a variety of purposes in most types of industries. Examples of uses are
membranes, carpets, wear protection, seals, gaskets, furniture, adhesives, cable couplings, shoe soles, upholstery, car parts, construction and sound insulation, wheel, arm, neck support, various kinds of offshore products and when embedding electronics. Polyurethane is also used in various forms of plates, rods and rollers.
Own brands in polymeric materials
Polyurethanes are usually characterized by very good wear resistance, high elasticity, chemical resistance and resistance to oil, resistance to both low and high temperatures, resistance to weather, wind and UV radiation, non-static, good insulation and sound-damping ability. Polyurethane elastomers have properties that in many cases correspond to and exceed rubber. Polyurethane is also very suitable for embedding sensitive electronics in vulnerable environments
We help customers with polyurethane solutions in widely differing industries, from mining and concrete industries to rehabilitation, industrial products, offshore and public environments. By developing functional polyurethane inserts that help the customer get a better end product that maintains a high quality with desired properties such as. strength, insulation, shock absorption and elastic properties.
