The material used in the moulding process is called Baydur®, a thermosetting polymer produced and distributed by the company Bayer Material Science.
Baydur® 60 is a medium-density structural polyurethane, which by virtue of its sandwich structure – a compact external skin with a foam core – opens a wide range of design possibilities. This polyurethane system is particularly well suited to the production of large size mouldings.
The moulded elements can sustain thicknesses of 4 - 20 mm at densities between 500 and 700 kg/m3.
Baydur® 110 is a compact microcellular engineered polymer for reaction-injection moulding (RIM), with a density of 1050 - 1150 kg/m3, notable primarily for being highly economical to work with.
Its short ejection cycles make it possible to produce articles at competitive costs which are mainly between 4 and 6 mm thick and have high stiffness and mechanical strength. The use of aluminium equipment offers high competitiveness in equipment costs; finally, the production process conforms to environmental standards
