Polyurethane Plastics: Rigid & Semi-Rigid
Poly-PlastiFlex is a slightly flexible polyurethane plastic that is popular for producing decorative trim molding and millwork.
A variety of other polyurethane plastics are also available for producing rigid parts.
PolyFoam rigid polyurethane foams can be used to cast finished parts of varying densities. Silicone molds are typically sprayed with a fast-curing primer prior to casting the foam so that the part is pre-primed when removed from the mold.
Polytek® polyurethane mold rubbers are most often used when casting reproductions in plaster and concrete and limited resin casting. Polyurethane molds are economical and long-lasting.
Polytek® silicone mold rubbers are most often used when making molds for resin or foam casting - release agents are generally not needed for either process, which is why they are sometimes preferred over polyurethane mold rubbers. For resin castings that need to be painted after casting, silicone mold rubbers are recommended.
