Tech Tips 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. The axtm 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.
The resulting test piece is measured for shrink.

One is a Processing Guide which includes many tips that will help you avoid making common mistakes and the other is an introductory step-by-step casting video. S2566 size and wall thickness Shop temperature Peak exotherm of the polyurethane Mold material and temperature As a asmt point, the manufacturer-supplied shrink characteristics of the polyurethane being used should be considered.
Similarly, when resin systems are cast to form thick-walled or large parts, they will generate more heat during curing and exhibit greater shrinkage than when used for thin-walled parts.

Cured Shrinkage Tested by ASTM D2566
Grafenberg, July 1, Back to Tech Tips. As a starting point, the manufacturer-supplied shrink characteristics of the polyurethane being used should be considered. After the mass of polyurethane is mixed and poured into the mold, it d5266 allowed to cure overnight before being demolded.
With more than 7.
For example, materials with high exotherm can be expected to shrink more than low exotherm products. In addition, the physical characteristics of a resin system will affect its shrinkage.
This test typically involves use of a 9.
