Saint Johns, Michigan -- Innovative Polymers, which provides urethanes for tough applications, is offering three new products -- a high-performance, ABS-like material, a translucent, polyethylene-like product and a low-density flexible foam that can help customer go "faster" and "better".
• TP 4020 high-performance PU is a stiff material with an ultra-high flexural modulus of up to 885,000 psi and heat deflection temperature of 263°F. It is ideal for fast casting of ABS-like functional prototypes and parts used in automotive under-hood and interior applications as well as precision equipment gears and components. The product can be demoulded after one hour at 150°F.
• IE 3040 Shore 60 +/-5 D polyurethane is a polyethylene-like material formulated for rotocasting and vacuum casting parts such as bottles. Translucent IE 3040 polyurethane parts are durable with an elongation of 55 percent, good flexural and high-heat characteristics and a notched Izod impact strength of 2.8 ft-lbs/in. The versatile system can be demoulded after less than two hours at room temperature.
• FM 104 lightweight, flexible foam has a density of 3-5 pcf designed for meter-mix dispensing or drill-mixing for optimum cell structure. The material has a fast 15-20 second cream time and can be demoulded in less than 40 minutes. The foam can be used for seating, safety helmet inserts and taxidermy blanks.
Innovative Polymers says that many of its products can be pigmented to a specified colour either by the customer or using our unique in-house colour-matching service.
Customers should note that, considering polyurethane pigmentation, there are a number of factors to consider: for example, UV stability may be affected.
