Flexible, lightweight, and cost-effective, urethane offers many advantages over metal, plastics, and rubbers. Urethane can be molded to any shape or size and in any color imaginable. Depending on the application, urethane can be formulated so that the resulting part is incredibly soft (or “squishy”) or incredibly hard.
Because urethane has give, it offers excellent shock absorption. It bonds well with other materials, including metals, and depending on material hardness, can be ground or machined.
