With the enormous variety of urethane formulas and combinations Polymer Components understands the benefit of all applications. We produce urethane parts and components in diversified hardness from 5A to 85D. Urethane products are measured by properties and benefits such as:

  • Hardness
  • Tensile strength
  • Tear and abrasion resistance
  • Out performs steel and rubber
  • Immense load bearing capacity
  • Reduction in sound and vibration
  • Resistant to oil and chemicals
  • Insulating properties
  • Non- Marking
  • Wide range bonding capabilities
  • Wide variety of colors, shapes and sizes

Agricultural Industry

If you work in the agricultural industry you recognize the many challenges and cost within this trade . With equipment being the farmer’s largest expenditure, protecting their investment is very important. Urethane can do just that, with our knowledge and years of experience, we can offer you the ability to extend the life of your farm machinery. Urethane can offer you the following advantages:

  • Resistant to cut and tear
  • Abrasion resistant
  • Weather and UV resistant
  • Light weight
  • Resistant to oil and chemicals
  • Reduced maintenance cost
  • Higher performance from your equipment

We offer many components to meet your needs such as wheels, guides, pulleys, rods, tubes, nozzles, seals, scraper blades, shock absorbing pad, and liners.

Automobile Industry

Polyurethanes can be found throughout an automobile. For example bumper, ceiling panel, spoiler, doors, windows, instrument panels and seat components.  The advantages in using polyurethane during the manufacturing process include:

  • Reduction in over-all weight of the vehicle
  • Increase in fuel economy
  • Rust resistant
  • Insulating properties
  • Noise reduction

Corrugated Industry

In the early 1900’s the first rubber products were introduced in the corrugated industry, with thriving technology the production continued to grow at a rapid pace, meeting demand in the transportation industry. At Polymer Components we have the ability to help the corrugated industry implement:

  • Self-adjusting rollers
  • Feed rollers
  • Liners
  • Anvil covers

Medical Industry

No one understands the importance of urethane in the medical industry like a patient.

When an individual is suffering from loss of limbs the urethane liners can provide a cushion, distribute pressure, and reduce irritation. Liners range in thickness and stiffness which can be used above the knee and below the knee. Other urethane medical applications include:

  • Hospital bedding
  • Medical carts
  • Tables and panels
  • Spoke casters

Polyurethane is utilized in many medical devices and the usage continues to expand. Advantages of using polyurethane in the medical application include:

  • Resistant to impact, cut, tear and abrasion
  • Outstanding flexibility with remarkable elastomeric memory
  • A wide variety of colors available
  • Bonds to metal
  • Non-marking

Mining Industry

The mining industry is part our infrastructure, natural resources have been mined for centuries and plays a major role in the world today. Just a small example of the resources provided by the miners around the world:

Coal – Electricity for worldwide use, steel and cement production

Gold – Jewelry, investing, dentistry, phones, computers, medical technology and aerospace equipment

Diamond –   Jewelry, industrial application (polishing, cutting, polishing and grinding)

Copper – Coins, construction, electronics, industrial machinery, heating and cooling systems

The mining industries equipment has to withstand brutal abuse; at Polymer Components we understand the importance of protecting your equipment. With the following urethane product you can lengthen the life of your investment:

Conveyor rollers and belts
