Polyurethanes (PUR) are materials that show high strength, elasticity, significant elongation, and high chemical resistance among others. These properties are result of a difference in their chemical structure. Considering this properties PUR are used in coal mining industry very often. In this application polyurethanes have not enough thermal stability. One of the methods to increase this factor is using nanofillers. Addition of small quantity particles to polyurethane can change its properties and create new class materials. The most common nanocomposites are composed of polymers and organically modified boehmite.
