Armorglide filled urethane capture the benefits of UHMW without the expensive process. Depending on the application high or low friction formulations may be achieved when using armorglide between 5% and 10% mixture. At Plan Tech we will high speed mix the armorglide into the urethane with state of the art urethane mixing machines to achieve a superior mixture between the armorglide particles and the urethane resin. The benefits of using with these surface-activated particles will increase abrasion resistance while reducing the coefficient of friction. Many cast urethane parts, and other wear surfaces are now being made using armorglide filled urethane to reproduce high wear parts at a fraction of the cost of similar materials.
Armorglide filled urethane increases abrasion and tear resistance and a reduced coefficient of friction when compared to traditional urethanes. In high wear applications, a hard hardness of 95A to 75D is recommended for long life service when using armorglide filled urethane. Normal operation temperature for optimum life span is between -10 and 170F. From prototype pieces to high volume Plan Tech can help with design changes and unique challenges. Often times OEM UHMW parts will be discontinued or a special profile will be needed in custom equipment. Armorglide filled urethane will solve most of these applications at a fraction of the cost vs. similar materials.
Plan Tech will learn the application and recommend the best polyurethane material for conditions. Being able to learn the applications allows us to tailor the material to provide high-quality urethane parts for many applications. For over 30 years we have focused on using speed and precision to rapidly deliver the highest quality industrial cast urethane products and FDA approved urethane parts to our customers. Our custom cast polyurethane facility maintains world-class capabilities and equipment, combined with excellent quality systems. A particular strength is the breadth of our in-house capabilities which, when combined with our extensive experience, enables us to rapidly deliver cast urethane parts while maintaining the quality control and cost effectiveness our customers need.
