Polyurethane Sheeting

GP Products are major suppliers of polyurethane sheeting to trade & wholesale customers across the UK & Ireland. We are able to supply your requirements for high quality sheeting to a maximum size of 3 Metres x 1 Metre in virtually any thickness. Delivery time is usually 3-4 weeks from order placement.

All our products conform to current European standards & are made to exacting specifications.

Polyurethane is one of the world’s most versatile materials. There are many applications where Polyurethane offers major advantages over traditional rubber components especially where friction is an issue. Popular uses include conveyor belting, chain guides, shock resistant pads, industrial wheel coverings, roller coverings, industrial flooring, blast screens, gaskets & shims, motor mounts etc.

Polyurethane Sheeting

We can produce sheeting in shore hardness’s from 65-93 & in formulations that suit operating temperatures from -40°C to +70°C on a continual basis (+100°C for short periods).

Our technical sales team will be pleased to advise the correct grade for your requirement. We can supply you with the correct product for use in environments where noise reduction is required or where the item is to be machined.

Some polyurethane is also suitable for use in water & all is highly resistant to ozone & oxygen attack. These products also have very good insulating properties & make them ideal for electrical insulation & mounting conductive rails.
