The polyurethane sample then cures at room ast for seven days and is measured again to determine the amount of dimensional change from initial demolding until full cure. Innovative has developed two new ways to access instant help when using our materials to create your polyurethane projects. Shrink in urethane systems, and other thermoset plastics, is affected by several asfm Tech Tips Before casting a urethane part, an accurate assessment of shrinkage is a key to obtaining dimensionally accurate results.
Cured Shrinkage Tested by ASTM D2566
Before casting a urethane part, an accurate assessment adtm shrinkage is a key to obtaining dimensionally accurate results. Shrink in urethane systems, and other thermoset plastics, is affected by several factors:.
In addition, the physical characteristics of a resin system will affect its shrinkage. As a starting point, the manufacturer-supplied shrink characteristics v2566 the polyurethane being used should be considered. Keep up to date on the latest Developments at Innovative Polumers.
Back to Tech Tips. After the mass of polyurethane is mixed and poured into the mold, it is allowed to cure overnight before being demolded.

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. This test typically involves use of a 9.

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.
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.
For example, materials with high exotherm can be expected to shrink more than low exotherm products.
