Wear and tear resistant polyurethanes

Features and benefits

Wear and shock resistant

Likonflex™ is a high end polyurethane that is highly resistant to wear and shocks.

Where these properties are of the upmost importance, Likonflex™ is far superior to much used elastomers, steel and nylon.

The greater flexibility, elasticity and shock absorbing properties of Likonflex™ clearly stand out.

Below is an overview of different grades.

Chemical properties

Likonflex™ parts show excellent chemical properties:

  • high resistance to ageing at room temperatures
  • resistance to chemicals, solvents and cleaning agents and oil
  • ozon and oxygen show no effects on Likonflex
  • special hydrolisis resistant qualities and high-temperature resistant qualities

Hot casting, extrusion and injection moulding

Likonflex™ parts can be hot casted, thus enableing manufacturing of small series at low totall costs.

LIKON also supplies extruded and injection moulded (TPU) parts.

 “The proof of the pie…”

Hot casted Likonflex™ is far superior to injection moulded qualites where mechanical properties are concerned.

Although this won’t allways show from datasheets, our extensive experience has proven. If your demands are high, you should choose our casted qualities.

Likonflex™ grades

  • Likonflex T – standard quality for low to average load.
  • Likonflex HT – heavy duty quality, high tear resistance, high abrasion resistance and excellent dynamic properties. Low hear buil-up and superior hydrolysis resistance compared to other polyurethane grades.
  • Likonflex NS – non-static, very good mechanic properties and good abrasion resistance. Chemical resistance to oil, fuel, ozone and weathering.
  • Likonflex S – abrasion resistant grade for combined hydrolysis and abrasion. Very low micro-organism build-up.
  • Likonflex S-FDA – FDA grade of Likonflex S.
  • Likonflex D – very good abrasion resistance, high tear strength and chemical resistance. For diluted chemicals environment and application that need be resitant to chemicals in general.
  • Likonflex E – high rebounce and excellent dynamic properties. Particularly suited for moving parts. Use in wet conditions.
  • Likonflex A – high tear strength. For applications where good chemical resistance and a large temperature range is required.
  • Likonflex K – high temperature resistant and especially for high load applications. Good chemical resistence.

Keeping up with COVID-19

This rapidly evolving corona-virus (COVID-19) has imposed an unsettling, fluid situation upon our community and its businesses. While the team here still aims to maintain a “business as usual” approach, we are making a number of significant changes to our operations to account for a situation that is far from normal. Governmental orders in the fight against the spread of the corona-virus (COVID-19) lead to the partial or complete closing of several production lines or designation of lines for the production of crucial parts for essential industries like food and pharma. As a direct result confirmed or usual lead times may not be met. In the current situation the delay cannot be determined. With the closing of factories in certain areas we need to make some changes to standard terms. To can keep operational and safeguard our financial position we must change certain terms. These will be announced and confirmed upon receipt of orders. Apologies for the inconvenience. Take care of yourself so you can take care of others!!
