Polyurethane cutting sticks are used in a number of different industries such as metal sheet, plastics, paper, cardboard, polythene and print trimming manufacturers, with a variety of uses.
One of the more common uses is blade protection when cutting other materials. The cutting stick will be located after the material to be cut, and will protect the blade from damage caused by hitting the machine surface. Polyurethane is an excellent material for this use given:
- its ability to withstand higher loads, high resistance to cuts and tears than rubber
- its higher impact resistance, elastic memory and resilience than plastic.

They are available in a range of 8 standard colours and of dimensions.
