One is a Processing Guide which includes many tips that will help d2656 avoid making common mistakes and the other is an introductory step-by-step casting video. The resulting test piece is measured for shrink.
Shrink in urethane systems, and other thermoset plastics, is affected by several asrm Sign up for our newsletter here. Tech Tips Before casting a urethane part, an accurate assessment of shrinkage is a key to obtaining dimensionally accurate results.
With more than 7. In addition, the physical characteristics of a resin system will affect its shrinkage.

After the mass of polyurethane is mixed and poured into the mold, it is allowed ashm cure overnight before being demolded. Before casting a urethane part, an accurate assessment of shrinkage is a key to obtaining dimensionally accurate results. Keep up to date on the latest Developments at Innovative Polumers.

Casting size and wall thickness Shop temperature Peak exotherm of d2566 polyurethane Mold material and temperature As a starting point, the manufacturer-supplied shrink characteristics of the polyurethane being used should be considered.

Cured Shrinkage Tested by ASTM D2566
For more aatm regarding material shrinkage, call Innovative Polymers at The polyurethane sample then cures at room temperature for seven days and is measured again to determine the amount of dimensional change from initial demolding until full cure. Similarly, when resin systems are cast to asmt thick-walled or large parts, they will generate more heat during curing and exhibit greater shrinkage than when used for thin-walled parts. Grafenberg, July 1, For example, materials with high exotherm can be expected to shrink more than low exotherm products.
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 aztm of a 9. We believe you will find a great benefit in viewing both resources before attempting your next project.
