Tech Tips Before casting a urethane part, an accurate assessment of shrinkage is a key to obtaining dimensionally accurate results. Similarly, when resin systems are cast to form thick-walled or large parts, they will generate more heat during curing and exhibit greater shrinkage than when used for thin-walled parts.
After the mass of polyurethane is mixed and poured into the mold, it is allowed to cure overnight before being demolded. Casting size and wall thickness Shop temperature Peak exotherm of the polyurethane Mold material and temperature As a starting point, the manufacturer-supplied shrink characteristics of the polyurethane being used should be considered.

Innovative has developed two new ways to access instant help when using our materials to create your polyurethane projects. For example, materials with high exotherm can be expected to shrink more than low exotherm products.
Cured Shrinkage Tested by ASTM D2566
We believe you will find a great benefit in viewing both resources before attempting your next project. While the ASTM D shrink results are helpful in estimating how a particular polyurethane will aztm in a real-world application, the values cannot sstm fully relied upon because the tests were conducted in the controlled laboratory setting with mold dimensions that are probably different than that of the customers parts.
In addition, the physical characteristics of a resin system will affect its shrinkage. The polyurethane sample then cures at room temperature for seven days and is measured again to determine the amount of dimensional change from initial demolding until full cure.
