MONOTHANE™ Single Component Polyurethane Elastomers are polyester-based polyurethane elastomers. No mixing or dispensing equipment is needed. No vacuum degassing equipment is needed. An efficient air circulating oven is required for melt down at 70°C and curing at 135°C.
MONOTHANE Elastomers also overcome air entrapment, one of the major problems in manufacturing vertically cast rollers. Several passes through a water-thin stage during the curing process, automatically degasses, producing bubble-free moldings. This is particularly important when making long rollers of small overall diameter.
MONOTHANE™ Single Component Polyurethane Elastomers offer a number of additional benefits including:
- Single component polyester-based.
- Low capital equipment costs.
- No mixing or dispensing equipment required.
- Custom formulated for each hardness grade.
MONOTHANE Polyurethane exhibits extreme durability and performance in demanding applications when compared with rubbers and other urethane systems.
MONOTHANE™ Single Component Polyurethane Elastomers are suitable for use in applications such as:
- Printing rollers
- Mechanical material handling rollers
- Steel mill rollers
- Anti-vibration mountings
- Textile spinners
- Capstan drive units.
- Seals, gaskets and rings
- Isostatic press bags.
MONOTHANE Polyurethane Elastomers are available in a hardness range from Shore A 20 to 90.
