SuperPro Polyurethane Suspension Bushings
Why Polyurethane Bushings?
Rubber has traditionally been used for automotive suspension bushes. It has the advantages of low cost, is easy to work with, it can be used a wide variety of applications and is able to provide a level of insulation between steel components. However, it has some significant disadvantages:
The consequence is that the bush will quickly cease to function as it was originally intended – even if the car is not used. The driver will experience reductions in quality of handling, steering responsiveness & ride quality, plus a reduction in the life expectancy of tyres & suspension components.
By comparison, Polyurethane as a bushing material is not vulnerable to abrasion, does not deteriorate when exposed to air, light or chemicals and retains a perfect memory of its original shape. Fitting polyurethane bushes will therefore ensure that the suspension components retain their designed geometry giving better handling & steering response, longer component & tyre life and an improved ride quality over worn rubber bushes.
It will also last significantly longer than the equivalent rubber component.
The significant disadvantage of traditional polyurethane bushes, where the original rubber bush is replicated using standard industrial grade material, is an increase in the transmission of Noise, Vibration & Harshness through the vehicle suspension – when compared with NEW rubber. Successfully addressing this issue through the use of unique materials & innovative design has been Superpro’s mission.
Features & Benefits of SuperPro polyurethane bushings
What is SuperPro?
Super Pro is a polyurethane elastomer base material, and is a class of “Thermosetting” synthetic Cross-Chain polymer that involves the reaction of various types of isocyanate resin with curing agents, to give an extremely durable material with the best features of rubber and plastic.
Super Pro is unique, it is the only polyurethane product range fully backed by a professional research and development program based on many years of hands on experience in the suspension industry.
Since the introduction of polyurethane into the aftermarket suspension industry in the early 80’s many have tried but few have succeeded in manufacturing accurate, durable parts consistently. Anyone can take two jam tins and mix part A with part B, pour it into a mould and get a result. It takes proper management and high technology to achieve the right result every time.
