RIGID POLYURETHANE (RTPU)

Advantages

  1. Extremely good flow
  2. Excellent chemical resistance for an amorphous material
  3. High Impact Strength

Limitations

  1. Very hygroscopic; requires good drying equipment
  2. Low heat deflection temperatures
  3. Not flame retardant

Overview

The RTP 2300 series is an engineering thermoplastic material based on urethane chemistry. It is not an elastomer, but is amorphous, which signifies that the material will mold to a tight dimensional tolerance with out warping. Its chemical resistance is similar to a semi-crystalline material.

Applications include agricultural and irrigation components, recreation and automotive equipment and electrical connectors.
