Innovative Polymers specializes in providing technologically advanced polyurethanes for the toughest applications. 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. The resulting test piece is measured for shrink. Casting size and wall thickness Shop temperature Peak exotherm of the polyurethane Aatm material and temperature As a starting point, the manufacturer-supplied shrink characteristics of the polyurethane being used should be considered.

In addition, the physical characteristics of a resin system will affect its shrinkage. This test typically involves use of a 9. The polyurethane sample then cures at room temperature for seven days and is measured again to determine the amount of dimensional change from initial demolding until full cure.

Before casting a urethane part, an accurate assessment of shrinkage is a key to obtaining dimensionally accurate results. For example, materials with high exotherm can be expected to shrink more than low exotherm products.

After the mass of polyurethane is mixed and poured into the mold, it is allowed to cure overnight before being demolded.
