Why Have UV-resistant Polyurethane Elastomers Created Higher $ Opportunity over the Past Half-decade?

Manufacturers of cast elastomers are ramping up production capacity to produce low-viscosity, high-functional, polyester polyols for application such as vibration and noise (NVH) materials for automobiles. UV stable resins with superior tensile and tear strength can be made with the aid of high-quality polyester polyols. As a result of these materials, premium cast elastomers with solvent and oxidation resistance are more readily available.

To extend their supply chains, manufacturers are unlocking revenue potentials in irrigation, pipeline safety, and encapsulation applications, in addition to automotive and power industry applications. The rising demand for UV resistant and long lasting polyurethane elastomer is creating new business opportunities for cast elastomer manufacturers.
