Innovative Polymers specializes in providing technologically advanced polyurethanes for the toughest applications. Casting Accessories Silicones Inc. Tech Tips Before casting a urethane part, an accurate assessment of shrinkage is a key to obtaining dimensionally accurate results. While the ASTM D shrink results are helpful in dd2566 how a particular polyurethane will perform in a real-world application, the values cannot be fully relied upon because the tests aastm conducted in the controlled laboratory setting with mold dimensions that are probably different than that of the customers parts.
About Us Innovative Polymers specializes in providing technologically advanced polyurethanes for the toughest applications. After the mass of polyurethane is mixed and poured into the mold, it is allowed to cure overnight before being demolded.
As a starting point, the manufacturer-supplied shrink characteristics of the polyurethane being used should be considered. For example, materials with high exotherm can be expected to shrink more than low exotherm products.
Shrink in urethane systems, and other thermoset plastics, is dd2566 by several factors:. In addition, the physical characteristics of a resin system will affect its shrinkage.
Cured Shrinkage Tested by ASTM D2566
Similarly, when resin systems are cast to form thick-walled or large parts, they will generate more heat during curing and exhibit greater shrinkage than when used for thin-walled parts. Before casting a urethane part, an accurate assessment of shrinkage is a key to obtaining dimensionally accurate results.
