Polyurethane is a liquid urethane polymer that can be cured to a range of hardnesses. 

Polyurethane has good resistance to abrasion, oils, many chemicals, solvents and oxidation, while maintaining high tensile strength and resilience.

This combination of properties makes urethane a unique plastic material. Having the elasticity of rubber, polyurethane also combines many of the advantages of rigid plastic and metal. 

Polyurethane is available from Pacific West – Plastic Suppliers.
