Open casting thermoset polyurethane is the reaction that occurs once the raw materials are combined and poured into a mold to set and cure. This type of urethane molding enhances the cross-linking of the polyurethane molecule, which cannot happen in the relatively short processing time of other molding types.
Using urethane casting results in a greater range of physical properties and better overall performance than other materials. Due to this range of properties, it can be used for various products.
Urethane is a low-cost material that can be used with a broad range of parts. For the price, it is a casting material providing quality and, at times, can be used for low volume production.
Urethane parts casting is useable for a large segment of industrial needs, especially where there is a significant changing market demand that may require updated parts more often.
When Using Urethane Casting, You Should Also Consider
- Parts Frequently Require Secondary Post Machining
- Can Lose tolerances
- Fine Details Are Difficult to Achieve
- Slow Cycle Time
- Scrap Is Not Reusable
Our engineers will consult with you on the proper materials for your project. If urethane casting is a suitable material and process, we will advise on its use.
