Modena, Italy– EASY-TO-USE elastomers take pain out of processing large parts. When creating high quality polyurethane components, parts manifactures typically have to work within a relatively narrow set of processing parameters - particullary when creating large, hard-wearing, cast polyurethane components for heavy duty markets. However, the production of substantial parts for industrial applications has recently become a lot easierthanks to Huntsman’s elastomer experts. To give parts producers extra manifacturing flexybility, Huntsman has developed a new range of easy-to-use (ETU) cast PU elastomersthat offer a wide processing window. Products in the ETU elastomers range have a long pot life and tolerant to process temperature variations which makes them easier tocontrol. Compatible with standard manifacturing equipment, they deliver exellent part-to-part consistency - helping to reduce scrap rates. They can also be processed at significantly lower temperatures and do not require any post curing treatment - making them more energy efficient.

TECNOTHANE© ETU 1617G elastomer is the first product available in the ETU range. This 3K system can be tailored made to deliver a wide range of shore hardesses from A45 to D60. Ideally suited to casting large, hard-wearing, specialist components, the Elastomer team is targetting TECNOTHANE© ETU 1617G specifically at mining, oil and gas, and industrial applications.
