Vemaprene™ Polyurethane Products

Polyurethane Parts and Products

Vemaprene™ Polyurethane belongs to the castable elastomer group. Its elasticity is between that of plastics and common rubbers. It is a unique design and construction material combining many of the advantages of rigid plastics, metals, and ceramics with the extensibility of rubber. It offers a number of physical and dynamic properties which enable its produce to meet a wide range of demanding applications.

  • Very good insulating properties

  • Excellent load-bearing capacity

  • Oil, grease, and chemical resistance

  • Flexibility at very low temperatures

  • Excellent long-term stability in water

  • Wide hardness range from 10 up to 90 shore A

  • Better impact resistance than almost all plastics

  • High resistance to degradation by atmospheric oxygen and ozone

  • Wide range of resilience and resistance to cracking under repeated flexing

  • Outstanding durability in applications where severe wear is a problem

Because of its dynamic properties, Vemaprene™ finds its way into a wide and diverse range of applications as follows:

  • Mining parts, such as screens, pump impellers, and hydroclones

  • Pipeline pigs, scaper cups, and pipeline spheres

  • Conveyor and transmission belting

  • Metal and ceramic die-forming pads

  • Equipment lining for vibratory mills, feed chutes, and ductwork

  • Die stripper springs

  • Hydraulic seals

  • Bearings, bushings, and gaskets

  • Belts for business machines and food handling equipment

  • Solid industrial parts and wheels for materials handling

  • Mallets and hammers

  • Rolls for the steel, printing, papermaking, and textile industries

  • Roller or in-line skate wheels, and amusement park wheels

  • Stock shapes and ventilating fans or motor fans
