As with all standard shaped items in our FORMATHANE product line, molded bars and rods are currently offered in numerous sizes to meet your metalforming needs (55 U.S. and 30 metric). The ability of FORMATHANE to deform when compressed, then recover to its original shape, makes it ideal for many metalforming applications. When a compressive load is applied, FORMATHANE reacts by distributing the force in all directions. This characteristic enables the urethane to exert pressure uniformly over the workpiece. Additionally, FORMATHANE can absorb operator and press errors, reducing damage.
