PHYSICAL PROPERTIES OF SPECTIS MOULDING PRODUCTS
SPECTIS products are made with high density polyurethane with an overall density similar to white pine at 14 to 18 pounds per cubic foot. The Spectis process provides a greater skin density than core density for increased durability.
SURFACE PROPERTIES AND FINISHES
All products are manufactured with a white or beige colour coating. Further, these products receive a primer finish coat before they are shipped to customers. The combination of the integral shell-like skin, the barrier coat, and the primer top coat provide an excellent substrate for durable finishes.
Ultra violet rays do not affect properly coated products.
The compressive strength of polyurethane products falls within the 800-950 P.S.I. Range. (The parts are not intended for structural use.)
The tensile strength of polyurethane products falls within the 550-650 P.S.I. range. (The parts are not intended for structural use.)
The degree of flexibility of any given polyurethane product is determined by the size and shape of its cross section. However, due to the inherent flex characteristics of polyurethane products, they will follow some curvatures and uneven surfaces.
Spectis polyurethane has a closed cell structure which provides protection from most solvents and renders it almost completely hydrophobic. It will not rot!
All Spectis polyurethane products resist the growth of mildew and fungus and provides no nutritional value for other organisms such as small rodents.
