As a starting point, the manufacturer-supplied shrink characteristics of the polyurethane being used should be considered. After the mass of polyurethane is mixed and poured into the mold, it is allowed to cure overnight before being demolded. Shrink e2566 urethane systems, and other thermoset plastics, is affected by several factors: Casting Accessories Silicones Inc.

For example, materials with high exotherm can be expected to shrink more than low exotherm products. Back to Tech Tips. Our technical support team welcomes the opportunity to partner with f2566 customers in solving processing and performance challenges. This test zstm involves use of a 9. 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.
Shrink in urethane systems, and other thermoset plastics, is affected by several factors:.
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 atm dimensionally accurate results.
Cured Shrinkage Tested by ASTM D2566
For more information regarding material shrinkage, call Innovative Polymers at Tech Tips Before casting a urethane part, an accurate assessment of shrinkage is a key to obtaining dimensionally accurate results. In addition, the physical characteristics of a resin system will affect its shrinkage. 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.
