From the start in 1971 LUC specializes in producing and processing hot cast and cured polyurethane (PUR) elastomers. Polyurethane elastomers combine the strength of plastic with the elasticity of rubber. The enhanced properties make their use in many cases preferable over that of the classic rubber. The strength of LUC is the fact that the company has a very profound knowledge of polyurethane chemistry, which is especially reflected by the numerous formulations and processing methods.
