Typical Applications

Cast polyurethane seals and gaskets are used in a wide range of industries. These include anywhere hydraulics plays a role, the automotive and steel industries, as well as aftermarket uses such as making seals for custom-made heavy truck bodies. Another aftermarket application involves the seals used in railroad ore cars, where the original material used would become too hard during cold weather and not allow the ore car to discharge its load. Polyurethane solved that problem.

Polyurethane’s Advantages

Cast polyurethane demonstrates strong abrasion and cut resistance. The materials used to make seals and gaskets can be formulated to provide superior resistance to exposure to solvents, oils, or chemicals or to give it the properties to withstand high loads or high pressures. It’s possible to fine-tune the hardness of polyurethane gaskets to achieve optimum results, whereas with rubber or other materials, the hardness is a given.

  • Versatility in hardness levels
  • Abrasion and wear resistance
  • Wide temperature range
  • High elasticity
  • Tear resistance
  • High tensile strength
  • Chemical and oil resistance
