BJB brings colour to flexible urethanes

1 min read

Industrial adhesive, glue and tape distributor Techsil offers a range of brands, including BJB’s polyurethane elastomers, which has some material news.

The main difficulty with these systems is dealing with the natural amber base colour of the material and the urethane odor. When tinted using light-colour pigments and/or exposed to the sun, the colour shift can be swift and dramatic. Trying to colour-match or create bright white parts can also be a big challenge due to the amber base.

BJB’s new ColorFlex range changes this with a semi-translucent, neutral white base colour that accepts a wide range of BJB’s 6800 series pigments and Techsil liquid pigment blends. The material is colour stable when exposed to moderate UV light.

One more major feature is the smell; it’s low-odour.

In terms of performance, Techsil says that it exhibits good rebound, abrasion and tear resistance and is currently available in durometers between 50A and 95 A, with either fast or medium work times.

In line with EU standards, this new range is also: mercury-free, phthalate-free and RoHS/REACH compliant.
