Urethane is a high-performance engineered elastomer. It offers superior characteristics for high demand applications. Urethane is known for its excellent properties of abrasion resistance, cut and tear strength, load bearing, shock absorption and chemical and environmental resistance.
In addition to being a top choice in demanding applications, urethane has other characteristics that make it a viable option in a variety of non-traditional applications. It is available in a wide range of hardnesses from very soft, like a rubber band, to very hard like a bowling ball, and in several different colors. Because All-State molds the parts in-house, simple to complex designs can be accommodated. Urethane can be directly molded to many different materials including steel, aluminum and plastic to enhance performance characteristics.

Urethane to Steel Bonded Components
Fillers can be added to improve materials properties – UHMW, slip agents, etc.
Various colors can be poured
Polyurethane ranging from 35 Shore A to 75 Shore D
Polyether and Polyester (MDI/TDI)
Integral Skin Foam (ISF)
Micro-cellular Foam (MCF)
Thermoplastic Polyurethane (TPU)
Hot Melt Adhesives
Higher abrasion resistance
Better cut and tear resistance
Higher load bearing ability
Harder Durometer range
Easy to color
Lower noise (urethane absorbs noise)
Lower fabrication cost
Better abrasion resistance over aluminum
Non-brittle – improved impact resistance
Elastomeric memory – means urethanes can be deformed and they will return to there original shape
Thick sections can be easily molded
Application – Used to isolate vibration from the engine and transmission compartment on a large wheel loader
