Urethane Bumpers – Polyurethane Bumpers
Urethane Bumpers are found at just about every amusement park or loading ramp around the world. Urethane Bumpers are an important part in high demanding applications that have repeated abuse or abrasion because of urethanes unique ability to absorb an impact and return to its original shape even after years of repeated impacts. Many applications require urethane bumpers which include boat ramps, loading docks, Go-Karts and race tracks. Polyurethane bumpers can be as small as 1/4’’ or as long as 8 feet! Large custom urethane bumpers and shapes are no problem for Plan Tech. Some common types of urethane bumpers that we manufacture include:
Urethane Bumper Feet: Urethane bumper feet are a critical part in many applications from chair leg tips to high-tech medical equipment. Custom urethane bumper feet have the ability to give traction and dampen vibration while capable of holding heavy loads. Custom urethane bumper feet will hold up best in tough applications and will outperform rubber and plastics while holding up to most outdoor conditions.
Urethane Slide Bumpers: Urethane Slide Bumpers can be custom formulated to suit your exact needs. Plan Tech specializes in manufacturing both high rebound urethane slide bumpers and low rebound urethane slide bumpers. Custom cast urethane slide bumpers will re-direct product to continue on track down an assembly line or direct products for packaging.
Urethane Bump Stops: Urethane Bump Stops are a block of urethane with a core for easy bolt on application. Urethane bump stops will absorb an impact and return to its original shape even after years of repeated abuse making urethane the number one choice. Custom profiles of urethane bump stops are no problem for us!
Custom Urethane Bumpers
Our custom manufactured 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 TDI based Ester material available. Polyurethane 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 if needed. Any color is available and a variety of additives can be added to enhance wear properties. A metal detectable additive can also be added for X-ray equipment required for FDA requirements. We also cast FDA Dry food approved Urethane bumpers.
