PU…everything you must know.vasilis
PU has replaced rubber as a raw material and many rubber spare parts are manufactured using a different PU grade, due to its better properties and better performance on the long run.
Rubber or PU? For the last couple of years, cotton picker users abroad chose PU parts due to their better performance. The general conditions for cotton picking, as recommended by machinery manufacturers, but also the machines’ requirements in terms of performance made PU the best option for doffer material.
In Greece, due to cotton picking conditions and the lower cost of rubber parts, rubber doffer remains the main choice for many users looking for a reliable but also economic choice.
ELASTIR cooperates for the last 20 years with European and American PU providers due to their constant quality control and their reliability as providers.
As a raw material, PU has many possible combinations depending on the properties we seek for spare parts. For this reason, the safety of the materials involved as well as the controlled manufacturing procedures are most important. ELASTIR uses only PU material 100% controlled according to European safety requirements.
