Polyurethane (PUR) is an insulating material for cables with the DIN/VDE designation
11Y. Polyurethane is halogen-free and self-extinguishing. The application temperature range is between -50°C and +85°C. The abrasion resistance is considered to be very high, the resistance to UV light, chemicals and oil is very good. Polyurethane cables are suitable as outdoor cables
and for moving applications. In addition, such cables can be used in highly contaminated environments. Polyurethane foam is also used for packaging electrostatic sensitive devices (ESD). In this case, the chips to be packaged are inserted into the polyurethane foam with their terminal pins. Black polyurethane foam is conductive, pink colored has antistatic properties. The foam is also used as an absorber material in low-noise rooms.
