In addition to the specific know-how of metal applications, the knowledge of polyurethane (PU) applications is a great specialty of W&TS, particularly in the dredging, maritime and offshore industry. These industries are characterized by working with extreme forces. Because of its specific features PU is therefore increasingly applied.
The material has:
- wear resistance;
- high tear and tensile strength;
- high elasticity;
- resistance to hydrolysis;
- good bonding to metals;
- chemical resistance;
- low specific weight.
In the aforementioned industries there are products to be found, which – due to the extreme conditions in which they are used – are extremely suited to be made of PU.
Together with its production partner, Herikon B.V. from Almelo, W&TS is well-equipped to provide its customers with the right, tailor-made advice. W&TS has had many years of collaboration and experience with this production-partner: from the very first developments of products made of PU until now. This ensures that W&TS is able to advise you about the right kind of PU (TDI, MDI and NDI) for any application.
