Hi, does anyone know of a link/source which gives some info re the safety of
Polyurethane elastomer parts in a cured form? (I know that residual
iso-cyanates can be a problem with some PUR's)
I have the MSDS and data sheet for the uncured (components) material but can
find nothing on the cured state.
When its cured its tends to smell, a bit. I want to know if I can post-cure
or wash or something else to get rid of the odour or is it unsafe to let
anyone breath the vapours (even in the cured form)
