Benefits of Polyurethane Rod Holders v. Rubber

  • Abrasion resistant: Superior to rubber, plastics, and metals in many wear applications
  • Tear resistant: Tear strength for polyurethanes is far superior to rubbers
  • Available in a wide variety of colors: Can be pigmented in a variety of colors, including transparents
  • Cast into molds, not compression molded: Consistent quality achieved, with minimal post cast machining required
  • Lower cost to manufacture: Lower materials costs and repeated use of molds ensure lower costs to manufacture.
  • Compression memory: When stretched or compressed, polyurethane returns to its original shape.
  • Weather & chemical resistant: Impervious to ozone, sunlight, oxygen, and weather conditions; resists breakdowns from exposure to oil, grease, gasoline, and solvents
  • Longer life: Abrasion, tear resistance, and superior load-bearing capabilities lead to longer life.
