Physical Properties of Polyurethane

Physical Properties of Polyurethane

Samples of both polyether and polyester were immersed for seven days at 75 degrees Fahrenheit. The rating was based on the volume change according to the following key:

(1) = Excellent    (2) = Good   (3) = Fair   (4) = Poor
