Self-curing cast polyurethane?

February 24, 2018

Q. Hi.
We get some rollers/components cast in POLY URETHANE having hardness 90 shore A.
My vendor uses ADIPRENE LF 900 A from CHEMETURA.

This material requires curing(baking) after pouring.

I am interested to know if there is a process/material available where PU self hardens upon ageing and does not need to be heat treated/cured/baked without compromising hardness and other properties (similar to ADIPRENE LF 900A)
Dont mind the cost involved but some how I want to avoid baking.
Thanks in advance

A. There are two part solvent free polyurethane resins that cure at room temperature. You can find them on the internet.

Q. Thanks for the reply TOM.
My main concern is hardness. Do these products you mentioned, achieve SHORE A 95 without baking ?

A. Hi Vikram. If you don't find radiation curing (UV & EB Curing) prohibitive, maybe it's possible. I don't know too much about it except that it's used for really hard coatings, like on plastic automotive headlights. Give a look at
