One is a Processing Guide which includes many tips that will help you avoid making common mistakes and the other is an introductory step-by-step casting video.
Back to Tech Tips. Shrink in urethane systems, and other thermoset plastics, is affected by several factors:.
Cured Shrinkage Tested by ASTM D | Acrotech Industrial Supply
As a starting point, the manufacturer-supplied shrink characteristics of the d2566 being used should be considered. For more information regarding material satm, call Innovative Polymers at While the ASTM D shrink results are helpful in estimating how a particular polyurethane will perform in a real-world application, the values cannot be fully relied upon because the tests were conducted in the controlled laboratory setting with mold dimensions that are probably different than that of the customers parts.
Keep up to date on the latest Developments at Innovative Polumers. In addition, the physical characteristics of a resin system will affect its shrinkage.
Home | Innovative Polymers, Inc.
Similarly, when resin systems are cast to form thick-walled or large parts, they will generate more heat during curing and exhibit greater shrinkage than when used for thin-walled parts. Before casting a urethane part, an accurate assessment of shrinkage is a key to obtaining dimensionally accurate results. For example, materials with high exotherm can be expected to shrink more than low exotherm products. Casting size and wall thickness Shop temperature Peak exotherm of the polyurethane Mold material and temperature As a starting point, the manufacturer-supplied shrink characteristics of the polyurethane being used should be considered.
With more than 7. Casting Accessories Silicones Inc. The polyurethane sample then cures at room temperature for seven days and is measured again to determine the amount of dimensional change from initial demolding until full cure.
Cured Shrinkage Tested by ASTM D2566
