Polyurethane (PU)

Polyurethane is a thermoplastic material that is very durable. It can range in flexibility between flexible and semi-rigid, and is resistant to abrasion, gasoline, and weak solvents.

PU is may be used in instances where flexibility and durability are important qualities. For example, escalator wheels are typically made out of Polyurethane. It is important to know that PU must be treated with UV stabilizer if it is going to come in contact with sunlight for prolonged durations, as visible light has a tendency to cause polyurethane to yellow.
