Abrasive Resistant Polyurethane Sheet

Abrasive Resistant Polyurethane Sheet

Abrasive Resistant Polyurethane Sheet

As Advanced Seals & Gaskets Ltd stock a range of polyurethane raw materials, we are able to supply these as cut sheet when customers require a smaller amount of material for conversion or sampling, alternatively sheets are converted into smalls strips and low volume gaskets and washers reducing waste. 

Abrasive Resistant Polyurethane sheets are just one of thousands of products supplied by ASG.   Abrasive Resistant Polyurethane  is available as a solid rubber or as very high density sponge also known by the trade name  “Dynathane”.  Solid Abrasive resistant PU is manufactured in roll form but can be cut down and supplied as a sheet.  The Abrasion resistance PU Sponge is  manufactured in block form measuring approximately 250mm x 500mm x 65mm thick and 250mm x 1000mm x 65mm thick which can be split down into thinner gauge sheets. 

Depending on whether the sponge or rubber sheet is taken, will determine the thicknesses we can offer, as the solid rubbers are made in a set of specific thicknesses whereas the sponge in many cases can be split down to order.   Standard solid  Abrasion Resistant Polyurethane Sheets are available in a choice of   1.4m wide x 1m or 2m in length, where as the sponge type are smaller in sizes 250mm x 500mm and 250mm x 1000mm which can be supplied in full, or alternatively we can cut them down into products including pads, strips, gaskets or washers.

    Characteristics of Abrasive Resistant Polyurethane Sheets

    Using abrasion-resistant materials offers a host of properties, characteristics however these will vary between material types and grades, some of the features and benefits include:

    • Colours: black, white, red, tan , off-white
    • Resistances: varying levels of abrasive resistance, oil, UV, Ozone, heat
    • Hardnesses: various levels of hardness depending on material type
    • Temperature: wide operating temperatures with certain types suited to extreme highs & lows

    What are Abrasive Resistant Polyurethane Sheets?

    Abrasive Resistant Polyurethane Sheets can be taken in two variants - solid rubber and a sponge.  Solid  Abrasive Resistant Polyurethane rubber is commonly manufactured in continuous rolls at 1.4 meters wide and in a choice of 5-meter or 10-meter lengths, however, our onsite conversion facilities allow us to cut these rolls down into smaller, easier-to-handle sheets in a choice of 1m or 2m lengths, and in a choice of thicknesses.  

    The sponge variant is manufactured in small blocks in two standard sizes which are  250mm x 500mm x 65mm thick and 250mm x 1000mm x 65mm thick, these can be split down into thinner gauges to order upon request.    Solid Polyurethane rubber sheets are available in Tan, Red, White (FDA) and black (Snow Plough) varieties, each suited to different applications.  

    Polyurethane sponge or Dynathane is a microcellular, hard-wearing sponge which feels almost like a solid rubber.   The sheets are lightweight, flexible, offering a high impact strength with excellent resistance to abrasion and tearing recognisable by its off white colour.

    Why use Abrasive Resistant Polyurethane Sheets?

    Abrasion is the term referring to the ‘wear’ caused on material when it comes into physical contact with another object or surface.  Abrasive-resistant Polyurethanes are high quality materials used in physically demanding applications and environments, offering extremely high resilience to wear and tear and used to provide a solution to mechanical impact damage, scraping, grinding and corrosion.  

    Abrasion is more likely to occur where movement or motion creates friction-induced wear and tear, here is when an Abrasive Resistant Polyurethane Sheet could be used to provide the best form of surface protection.   Abrasive Resistant Polyurethane Sheets are used in applications where the material needs to be able to resist the effects of erosion,  rubbing or scraping which would cause friction and therefore damage the material.  

    When selecting a material or product which will be exposed to repetitive mechanical wear and tear or impact, an Abrasive Resistant Polyurethane Sheet could be the answer.   A PU material with abrasion resistance properties, will resist wear and erosion caused by mechanical wear, allowing the material to retain its original form for longer therefore reducing the risk of component or product failure and saves on the cost of having to replace the material more often.   

    Different Grades

    Advanced Seals & Gaskets Ltd have a network of material manufacturers and suppliers, giving our customers more choice of Abrasive Resistant Polyurethane Sheets material including:

    • Abrasion Resistant PU Sponge (Dynathane) hard wearing lightweight sponge.  It is flexible and has a high impact strength with superb resistance to abrasion and tearing, offers an operating temperature range of -40°C to +80°C, manufactured in densities of 450 up to 650 Kg/m³, recognised by its off-white almost tan colour and found used in applications such as tank linings, anti-vibration mounts, gaskets, buffers and for noise reduction.
    • Red abrasion resistant rubber is a tough grade of material manufactured from a high quality natural rubber (NR) specifically designed to provide resistance to abrasion and tear. It is commonly used for sacrificial quarry linings and slurry handling plants, target backing curtains, gaskets, fabricated parts and seals, sleeves, and tank and silo linings.
    • White abrasion resistant rubber is also manufactured using natural rubber, but a softer compound, which still provides excellent resistance to abrasion and tear. This material is often utilized in product transfer applications such as chute and hopper liner,or converted into gaskets for use within food processing and packaging equipment or machinery.  This material offers good resistance to ketones, organic acids, alcohols and aldehydes, however isn't recommended for use with animal fats, petroleum, vegetable oils and most hydrocarbons.
    • Shotblast (tan para) rubber is a tan coloured, extremely robust and durable rubber, which has excellent resistance to abrasion,commonly used for chute lining, shot blast cabinet lining, gaskets or seals.  Also manufactured from natural rubber, this material offers excellent sealing properties, moderate resistance to some aldehydes, some diluted acids and weak chemicals, but not recommended for contact with solvents, petroleum and concentrated acids.

    Advantages to using Abrasion Resistant PU Materials

    • Can be used in physically demanding applications and environments.
    • Offers extremely high resilience to wear and tear.
    • Provides surface protection and a solution to mechanical impact damage, scraping, grinding and corrosion.   
    • Cost savings as longer lasting material, therefore reduced risk of component or product failure.
    • Can offer a range of other characteristics and properties including ozone, weathering, UV, oil and chemical resistances (these will vary between material grades).
    • Can be used as sheets or cut into gaskets to use within machinery and equipment.
