What is the Average Thickness for Urethane Coating?

August 19, 2013 | Custom Wire Baskets, Stainless Steel Baskets

Urethane molecule modelUrethane (or more formally polyurethane) is an artificial polymer. As a protective coating on metal baskets, it is durable and very protective under UV rays. It is not great at inhibiting rust, but that is less a factor when coating rust-resistant material such as titanium, stainless steel or aluminum. The average coating thickness for urethane is 0.032” to 0.058”.

One resource on the topic is the Urethane Blog.
