Textile industry

Our special polyurethane elastomers prove their technical potential in weaving & textile machines under enormous abrasive stresses

High speed looms, guiding of abrasive yarns, etc. – textile machines are high-performance machines with enormous demands on design and materials. Here, too, polyurethane elastomer products can be used in various applications where their excellent properties are a crucial factor, for instance in:

Driving wheels | Yarn guides | Pickers | Grabbers | Squeezing rollers | Calender rolls | Stretching rollers etc.

WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES OF PUR COMPARED WITH RUBBER?

Polyurethanes differ from natural or synthetic rubber in a number of special features, such as:

  • outstanding wear- and abrasion resistance
  • high tensile strength
  • good damping and resilience
  • high tear resistance
  • good electrical properties
  • high resistance to mineral oil and fuel
  • high rebound elasticity over the full hardness range
