Tsurupinsk, Ukraine — OSV Technology will use materials from Australian Era Polymers for its new polyurethane products.
According to the company, the products – gaskets and seals – are not new to the country's polyurethane industry, though they've largely been imported in the past.
OSV spokesman Yuriy Shafran said the company had generally used Era cold castable grades Eracast RT 45A and Eracast RT 70A for manufacturing gear tape for some industrial applications for clients and as wheel covering for an OSV casting machine for pultrusion.
Shafran said Era Polymers – specialists in polyurethane chemistry – will provide raw materials for production.
He described Eracast RT 45A and Eracast RT 70? as two-component polyurethane elastomers with excellent performance tensile strength, elongation and resistance to chemical attack, said Shafran.
