Polyurethane adhesives are a very popular option for many industrial projects. They have been used in the manufacturing industry for decades and polyurethane adhesive product lines continue to expand. In this blog post, we will take a look at 5 reasons why you should consider using polyurethane adhesives for your next project!
Reason #1 - Polyurethane adhesives can be used to bond a wide variety of materials such as plastic, metal, wood and more which makes them an attractive choice.
Reason #2 - According to the SEMA, polyurethane adhesives are also able to provide a high degree of durability that cannot be achieved by any other material. Polyurethanes are resistant against harsh environmental conditions and offer superior chemical resistance. In addition, they do not become brittle over time because polyurethane adhesives retain some level of flexibility even in low temperatures.
Reason #3 - Polyurethanes are good for things that need to be strong. They can absorb shock when they need to, and recover quickly if they are hit or pushed. This makes them one of the toughest bonding materials used in manufacturing today.
Reason #4 - Manufacturers and other industrial adhesive users have trusted their product quality and reputations to polyurethane adhesives for decades. Whether using single component, moisture-cure polyurethane adhesive for ease of application, or their two-component polyurethane counterparts that offer a more tailored control.
Reason #5 - Depending on the application methods used, polyurethane adhesives can offer a significant cost savings when compared to other adhesives. Polyurethane glues can be sprayed, rolled, or bead-applied delivering thinner coat weights over larger surface areas. Lower adhesive coat weights equate to lighter end products. In turn, this increase in efficiency means more adhesive coverage with less adhesive used, lower adhesive waste and ultimately cost savings on your adhesive spend.
In conclusion, polyurethane adhesives offer a number of benefits to your next project. Advantages including ease and flexibility of adhesive application, superior resilience and bond strength, decades of proven results, and lower production cost are only a few of the many reasons you should consider using polyurethane adhesives for your next project.
