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 x2566 were conducted in the controlled laboratory setting with mold dimensions that are probably different than that of the customers parts.

In addition, the physical characteristics of a resin system will affect its shrinkage. As a starting point, the manufacturer-supplied shrink characteristics of the polyurethane being used should be considered.
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.
Cured Shrinkage Tested by ASTM D2566
After the mass of polyurethane is mixed and poured into the mold, it is allowed to cure overnight before being demolded. Shrink in urethane systems, and other thermoset plastics, is affected by several factors:. Casting Accessories Silicones Inc. With more than 7. 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.
