Generally, thermoplastics have two major disadvantages: low heat resistance when compared to metals and low resistance to chemicals. So what material can we use to produce parts that will be in contact with chemicals or that will be used at temperatures above 212°F (100°C)? The answer is Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE)!
Polyurethane is the name given to materials produced by the reaction of isocyanates with polyols. I say "materials", in the plural, because polyurethanes are extremely versatile and allow as the manufacturing of hard products as elastomeric/rubbery products and foams/sponges.

This is a very common question on the day-to-day... Especially for anyone who ever needed to change a car headlight, motorcycle windshields, an awning or bathroom enclosure.
