We Manufacture All Types Of Urethane Bumpers
Urethane Snow Plow Bumpers: Urethane snow plow bumpers have been attached to plow trucks and ATV’s for decades to eliminate metal on metal contact and prevent slamming while providing some vibration protection and shock resistance to the equipment. Urethane snow plow bumpers are typically made from a solid urethane in a low-cost mold that is customized to fit any piece of equipment by water jetting holes or slots into the urethane bumper to fit OEM factory bolt locations.
Urethane Gun Recoil Bumpers: Custom cast urethane gun recoil bumpers are made from proven urethane prepolymer’s from world leading chemical companies. One specialty type of polyurethane is the Adiprene line which has been in service for over a decade. The polyurethane materials are a proven material on many repeating parts making reproducing existing urethane gun recoil bumpers easily available.
Urethane Dock Bumpers: Most common urethane dock bumpers are cast from a 60A material that is about the same hardness of a car tire. Our most popular bumper is in the shape of a ball with a thru hole for a chain or rope attachment and bolts on bumpers with a molded insert that will not pull out no matter how hard a boat hits the bumper.
Tight Tolerance Urethane Bumpers
Urethane Boat Bumpers: You can trust our urethane boat bumpers for applications in saltwater, and our first-grade quality urethane ensures our boat bumpers don’t absorb water. It would, therefore, not be wrong to say that our urethane boat bumpers offer high-performance ability and the fact our urethanes are non-marking means you needn’t worry about the side of the boat being marked by the bumper.
Urethane Mounting Bumpers: All we require from you for our team of world-class engineers to help you actualize your next project is a simple sketch. You can count on our urethane mounting bumpers to withstand an onslaught of repeated impacts while still managing to return to their original shapes.

In other words, our counterbored urethane bumpers offer high-performance ability and long service life both of which help in reducing operating cost. We share your goal of becoming or maintaining your status as an industry leader, and that makes us the ideal company to handle your counterbored urethane bumpers’ project or any other urethane project for that matter.
Impact Resistant Urethane Bumpers
Impact Resistant Polyurethane Bumpers: Impact Resistant Polyurethane Bumpers are widely used in almost all the industries across America. Since polyurethane is resilient and quite strong, durable and has an extremely a long service life, it is used in various industrial applications. The automobile, distribution manufacturing and agricultural industries are just a few of the many industries that use impact resistant polyurethane bumpers. Polyurethane is also a very good shock absorber always returning to its original shape.
Best Polyurethane Bumpers: Our best polyurethane bumpers are quite durable and are used in a variety of applications. Applications range from gun recoil bumpers to loading docks. As polyurethane has a longer life than various conventional rubber or plastics, Plan Tech’s best polyurethane bumpers are used across America. Polyurethane can absorb shocks and return to its original shape, it is used in places that have repeated impacts.
Polyurethane Molded Bumpers: Polyurethane molded bumpers have the best elasticity to strength ratio. These bumpers are abrasion resistant and durable. From prototype to high volume when it comes to creating custom polyurethane parts, there’s no material – be it an elastomer, plastic or metal – that stands up to abrasion like urethane does. Polyurethane molded bumpers of all shapes and sizes are manufactured in our fully equipped manufacturing facility in the USA our urethane bumpers are the best you will find in the industry.
Custom Urethane Bumpers
Our custom manufactured urethane bumpers may have a metal insert or core to add to the integrity to the bumper or be able to fasten to another piece. Plan Tech uses the best high-quality polyurethane material available. Urethane bumpers are normally made with an ester polymer that will have less rebound and be especially strong against abrasion. Urethane custom cast bumpers are common to have a hardness of 70A but we custom manufacture urethane bumpers from 20A to 75D. We offer a full in-house machine shop dedicated to making molds and performing secondary operations for our customer’s urethane bumpers if needed. Any color is available and a variety of additives can be added to enhance wear properties of the customer urethane bumpers. A metal detectable additive can also be added to the urethane bumpers for X-ray equipment required for FDA requirements. We also cast FDA Dry food approved urethane bumpers.
Below are some of the benefits and advantages of urethane bumpers:
Filling the Gap Between Rubber and Plastic
Polyurethanes are outstandingly able to withstand more loads than rubber because they are harder than rubber and yet more flexible than plastics. Plan Tech’s urethane bumpers flexibility is accountable for their strength and remarkable ability to resist impact.
Polyurethanes are the perfect choice for applications against severe wear regardless of low temperature. For some decades now, they have been the most used materials for environments that are highly abrasive owing to their super ability to resist abrasion. No other form of elastomers, metals, and plastics has a better abrasion resistance than polyurethanes. Urethane bumpers unique ability with high wear and abrasion resistance is rated to be 10 times better than what other materials can provide.
Oil and Chemical Resistance
Like their abrasion resistance ability, the properties of polyurethane materials are highly capable of resisting oil and chemicals. This enables our urethane bumpers to maintain stability (with minimal swelling) in water or oil etc. If you are looking for elastomer materials to use in a wide variety of applications, then polyurethanes should be your ideal choice.
Affordable Manufacturing Process
Productions such as prototypes as well as one time products, urethane bumpers or one-off parts are often manufactured using polyurethanes.
Resilience is generally a product of hardness. Polyurethanes are the perfect choice for elastomer applications that can absorb shock. They have a high vibration frequency or outstanding ability for quick recovery. Their remarkable resilience ensures polyurethanes are very tough materials and an excellent choice for urethane bumpers.
