Urethane rubber, also known as spandex, is a polymer containing a urethane block for strength and heat resistance as well as a polyether block for elasticity. As a result, urethane rubber is considered one of the most versatile rubber compounds available. Urethane rubber is resistant to abrasion, powerful impacts, ozone, chemicals, and radiation.
Urethane is an oil-resistant rubber and performs well in oil and fuel applications. Its high resilience and low temperature flexibility make Pierce-Roberts high-performance urethane rubber suitable for applications including rubber rollers, belts, rubber diaphragms, o-rings, rubber gaskets, seals, hose tube and covers, vibration isolators, bumpers, impellers, and more.
