Original Press Release:

Polyurethane Gel Elastomer Casting Resin with Low Surface Tack

Northstar Polymers, formulator/manufacture of polyurethane resin products, recently developed a series of very soft polyurethane casting resin formulas in lower Shore OO Durometer and OOO Durometer ranges with very low surface stickiness.

Conventional polyurethane gel resin formulations have very sticky surfaces, which limit the product designs of molded products. These new formulations developed by Northstar Polymers have much lower surface tack levels. This enables users to easily cast the low viscosity liquid resin mix into a low-cost mold to make very soft products with low-tack surfaces.

These soft materials also come with high-elongation properties 500% or beyond the original length. The materials are made from hydrophobic material and expected to make waterresistant products.

Possible applications for these formulations include upholstery gel pad, honeycomb cushioning columns, specialty gaskets, sealer parts for cable splicing, body models for medical training, bathtub pillows, gel shoe insoles, bed mattress gel parts, wheelchair positioning parts, computer keyboard/mouse wrist rests, bicycle seat covers, and many more.
