Innovative Polymers Inc. has a new series of polyurethanes that simulate thermoplastic processing and performance.
The new resins rely on cross-linking technology to give polymers gel times of seven to 15 minutes and demold times of less than seven hours at room temperature. Cured properties include good impact strength, good heat deflection temperature and a high flexural modulus. Several products are flame retardant.
The new polyurethanes are well-suited for equipment housings, automotive interior and under-the-hood parts, medical and electronic components and water-clear lenses, according to the Saint Johns, Mich., company.
The materials can be hand cast or vacuum cast to create parts that act as if they were injection molded, claims Innovative Polymers.
