Polyurethane - Structural Foam

Advantages

Lowest water absorption and mould shrinkage, best arc resistance, flow and flexural modulus/unit cost compared with other thermosetting polyurethane’s.

Disadvantages

Worst fatigue index and machining characteristics compared with other thermosetting polyurethane’s.
