They are elasticity, resistance and versatility themselves
Polyurethanes (PU) are synthetic polymers made up of a chain of urethane bonds. They are thermoplastic elastomers that exhibit elastic features typical of elastomers, but with a mechanical resistance closer to thermoplastic materials. Polyurethanes offer exceptional mechanical properties such as excellent abrasion resistance making them suitable for use in many applications. They stand out for their load capacity, wear resistance, and smoothness.
In addition to classic polyurethanes for hydraulic applications, ATP has developed other compounds with specific characteristics that provide superior performance in particular applications. The improvement of resistance to hydrolysis and sanitising products allows, for example, SINTEK HTPU to be used in many applications in the food and pharmaceutical industries, while the presence of additives with low coefficient of friction in other polyurethanes makes for better resistance to dry sliding. Finally, the increase in the hardness of the compound allows the achievement of excellent load resistances.
