About Us Innovative Polymers specializes in providing technologically advanced polyurethanes for the toughest applications. The resulting test piece is measured for shrink.
Keep up to date on the latest Developments at Innovative Polumers. For example, materials with high exotherm can be expected to shrink more than low exotherm products.
Our technical support team welcomes the opportunity to partner with our customers in solving processing and performance challenges.
We satm you will find a great benefit in viewing both resources before attempting your next project. Tech Tips Before casting a urethane part, an accurate assessment of satm is a key to obtaining dimensionally accurate results. The polyurethane sample then cures at room temperature for seven days and is measured again to determine the amount of dimensional change from initial demolding until full cure.

Innovative Polymers specializes in providing technologically advanced polyurethanes for the toughest applications. As a starting point, the manufacturer-supplied shrink characteristics of the polyurethane being used should be considered. Shrink in urethane systems, and other thermoset plastics, is affected by several factors: Grafenberg, July 1, Before casting a urethane part, an accurate assessment of shrinkage is a key to obtaining dimensionally accurate results.
Innovative has developed two new ways to access instant help when using our materials to create your polyurethane projects. After the mass of d266 is mixed and poured into the mold, it is allowed to cure overnight before being demolded.
Casting size and wall thickness Shop temperature Peak exotherm of the polyurethane Mold material and temperature As a starting point, the manufacturer-supplied shrink characteristics of the polyurethane being used d5266 be considered. In addition, the physical characteristics of a resin system will affect its shrinkage.
Similarly, when resin systems are d256 to form thick-walled or large parts, they will generate more heat during curing and exhibit greater shrinkage than when used for thin-walled parts. This test typically involves use of a 9. Casting Accessories Silicones Inc. While the ASTM D shrink results are helpful in estimating how a particular polyurethane will perform in a real-world application, the values cannot be fully relied upon because the tests were conducted in the controlled laboratory setting with mold dimensions that are probably different than that of the customers parts.
