Polyurethane board (also known as model board) is described as machinable boards that are supplied to order in various densities.
How are Polyurethane Boards Shaped?
Polyurethane boards are cut and shaped by hand, or via CNC machining in the case of higher densities. CNC machining produces dimensionally accurate patterns of composite materials. They are supplied in varying thicknesses and density depending on your requirements and the desired end-use.
Why choose Polyurethane Board over Epoxy?
Polyurethane boards are chosen over epoxy boards mainly due to cost. Polyurethane is lightweight and versatile but much cheaper than the epoxy counterpart due to it being restricted to use in lower temperature applications only. They are commonly used in prototype modelling work as well as for product modelling on film sets.
What industries use Polyurethane Boards?
Many industries make use of Polyurethane Boards as part of their process. Some of these include:
- Film production and media
