The poly(urcthancimidc) (PUI) elastomers, based on poly(oxytctramcthylcnc) glycols of MW 1000 and 2220, aromatic diisocyanatcs and dianhydridcs of aromatic tetracarboxylic acids, were characterized by investigation of prepolymer solution viscosity, stress-strain properties thermal and hydrolytic stability. The highest tensile strength (30-45 MPa) and good thermal stability of PUI, due to a high polyimidc content, was reached after full imidation by annealing PUI films at 160°C in vacuum. PUI exhibited better mechanical properties and hydrolytic stability in hot water than the corresponding polyurethane extended with 1,4-butancdiol. The temperature resistance of PUI, characterized by tensile strength of films, was dependent on the PUI structure and imide/urethane ratio. The flex life of PUI (up to 2 500 00 flexures at room temperature) was also strongly dependent on the film thickness.
