Case Studies from Durable Polyurethane

How to improve performance and endurance of your Polyurethane elastomers roll covers?

Elastomer rollers can be used to protect, squeeze, feed, insulate or convey products. However, many polyurethane compounds change in hardness and mechanical properties under varying operating conditions, such as exposure to heat and chemicals. This stability issue leads to reduced efficiency, more defects in production, more maintenance and more regular replacement of parts.


Extreme durability of Polyurethane cast for the oil & mining industry

Oil and mining companies are looking to extend the life of their asset to sustain supply. It becomes then critical in the oil & mining industry to benefit from a Polyurethane inner cast that can resist to very harsh environmental conditions such as severe abrasion and extreme thermal, chemical and hydrolytic attacks. Superior durable Polyurethane is a must-have for this type of application!


Maximize the endurance of PU adhesives for industrial protection footwear

Polyurethane adhesives are broadly used for attaching the upper shoe to the sole. But when it comes to industrial protection footwear, you have to make sure that you use the best Polyurethane adhesives that can resist to severe chemical attack and extreme conditions. Eternacoll® Polycarbonate Diols significantly improve the performance of waterborne and solvent-based Polyurethane adhesives. Indeed, they bring an improved resistance to severe ageing and extreme chemical attack for long lasting and high performance industrial footwear adhesives.


Durable transparent Polyurethane applications

How to manufacture goods with high clarity features? And even more challenging, how to keep the initial transparency and the global durability over time when the material is exposed to extreme weather conditions and mechanical damages? This is one of the many challenges faced by OEM today.

In this case study, learn how Polyurethane-based with UBE Eternacoll® Polycarbonate Diol is the ideal material for durable transparent Polyurethane (PU) application. It shows an outstanding initial clarity and is highly durable thanks to long-lasting transparency and also an excellent retention of initial mechanical properties.


Durable waterproofing membranes for extreme conditions

Waterproofing membranes that can resist to harsh environmental conditions is a key benefit. Waterproofing membranes based on Polyurethane (PU) offers outstanding advantages. It can resist to harsh environmental conditions such as extreme humidity and temperatures. Superior durable PU materials are a must-have for this type of application! Polyurethane-based with UBE Eternacoll® Polycarbonate Diol is the ideal material for waterproofing membranes. It provides an improved durability to PU thanks to excellent resistance to hydrolysis and extreme temperatures, as well as improved mechanical properties. As a consequence, this superior durability reduces the overall maintenance costs of PU waterproofing membrane!
