What is POLYURTHANE (PU) Body kits ?
There is probably no more versatile material for so many high-performance applications than polyurethane. With a molecular structure composed of four of the most common elements – carbon, hydrogen, oxygen, and nitrogen – polyurethane has a combination of properties which are not available in any other thermoplastic material.
Some key properties of RIM and R-RIM include:
• Excellent impact strength even at low temperatures
• Minimal restrictions on part size and weight
• Unique balance of rigidity and toughness
• Ideal for in-moulded inserts
• Good chemical resistance
• Good paintability
• Low weight
PUR bodykit Features
Polyurethane is a unique material that offers the elasticity of rubber combined with the toughness and durability of metal. It can be manufactured in a variety of hardness, ranging from rubber band soft to bowling ball hard. Depending on the durometer, urethane can elongate up to 800% and returns to its’ original dimension without a significant loss of memory. Our RIM Polyurethane material is a specially developed and formulated composite for the manufacture of high quality automotive body kits.
Developed primarily for all major automotive manufacturers, our composite polyurethane has a combination of properties which are not traditionally present in any other materials. Unlike traditional fiber glass kits there is minimal distortation or splitting, and its so tough that it will blend before it breaks. Our polyurethane material also has tremendous shape memory and retention characteristic.
Polyurethane can replace either rubber, plastic or metal to create the ultimate material in abrasion resistance and physical properties. Polyurethane is perhaps one of the toughest, most wear and abrasion resistant material available today.
Advantages & Disadvantages of PU Body kits
Polyurethane ( PU ) automobile body kits have many great acknowledged excellences such as anti-bumping, non-distortion, toughness, heat & cold-resistance (-40 to +80) and contamination-free. Therefore, polyurethane has been widely adopted by international top grade automobile industry as the best materials for car body kits.
The above great excellences of polyurethane automobile body kits are much more superior than regular materials like traditional cheap fiber glass(FRP) body kits.
Polyurethane automobile body kits have standard specification, distinctively decent appearance and beautiful paint effect and also are very easy for installing. These superior merits would bring many advantages over rivals regular body kits items (PP fiber). Installation is very easy due to standard specification from exact steel mould. Due to molding by perfusion of liquid polyurethane material, it has unique smooth appearance and beautiful paint effect.
