The results of the physical test performed on Bumper Specialties’ polyurethane material are summarized in the table below. Please note, these tests were performed on hand mixed samples and the values are averaged. Values obtained from machine mixed samples would be better due to improved mixing and reduction or elimination of entrapped air.
