The steel industry started to boom late 1800’s and early 1900’s in America. It is the heart of America’s infrastructure from colossal bridges, buildings, airplanes, roller coasters, to the medical equipment used in the operating rooms around the country. Each piece of steel goes through a rigorous process, mining of the iron ore requires drilling the land, blasting in the designated area and hauling the iron ore to the processing plant. Once the iron ore is received for processing the ore, fluxes and coal are formed into molten steel. The molten steel is then processed into billets, wire, slabs, sheets and rolls. The steel created is shipped throughout the world to be used by our Military, Government, Contractors, Shipyards, Railroad Systems and many more industries. Without the steel industry we would not have the massive infrastructure we do across the world.
Urethane plays a vital role in modern steel production. Many parts that were once composed of strictly plastic or rubber have been replaced with urethane due to it’s superior qualities:
|Urethane vs. Rubber||Urethane vs. Plastic|
|Cut & Tear Resistance||Elastic Memory|
|Superior Load Bearing Capacity||Abrasion Resistance|
|Very High Abrasion Resistance||High Impact Resistance|
|Resistance to Radiation||Thick Section Molding|
|Castabl||Low Cost Tooling|
|Low Pressure Tooling||Variable Coefficient of Friction|
|Thick Section Molding Without a Curing Gradient||Efficient Noise Reduction|
Urethane products built by Polymer Components are abrasion and tear resistant, chemical and oil resistant with the ability to withstand the continuous brutal operations found in the steel industry.
