We have a specialized urethane seals molding department along with waterjet cutting equipment to produce custom tight tolerance urethane seals. We have found that our seals function well in high stress demanding applications. Available in both polyester and polyether we will learn your application and recommend the best material for your next custom seal requirement. We utilize the best in class polyurethane from world’s leading polyurethane manufacturers and manufacture the industries largest selection of high-quality Custom Urethane Seals some of which include:
Custom Urethane Seals
Urethane Testing Seals: Urethane testing seals are molded to tight tolerances and can be manufactured to withstand harsh conditions while lasting for years in even the most demanding industrial applications. Urethane testing seals are economical in any volume and provide excellent abrasion and chemical resistance. Common cast urethane testing seals applications are for bulk material transfer systems, mobile hydraulics, machining services and gas fittings. Urethane testing seals offer unique solutions which can be manufactured for a wide range of industrial applications.
Industrial Urethane Seals: Industrial urethane seals are one of Plan Tech’s specialty industrial products that we manufacture. Urethane has a great ability to be resistant to most chemicals and has great sealing properties both in high and low-pressure conditions.
Urethane Seal Rings: Urethane seal rings are available in any profile for many industrial applications. Polyurethane seal rings are made from a high-quality TDI material and can be supplied in any color or durometer. Custom cast urethane seal rings are a great solution when traditional seal rings fail or are not available in the size for your custom application. Urethane seal rings are available in all sizes and a variety of additives can be added to enhance wear properties or abrasion resistance.
Urethane Hydraulic Seals: Urethane hydraulic seals are ideal for low-pressure sealing or as dust seals. While high-performance Nitrile rubber dual opposing spring seal lips are required for high pressure sealing urethane hydraulic dust seals and low-pressure seals are ideal for a cost-effective one-off replacement or for high volume sales.
Tight Tolerance Urethane Seals
Urethane Pipe Seals: Urethane pipe seals are found in many industries which include high-pressure gas fittings while others are used in drainage applications. Urethane is a great choice when choosing a seal because of its ability to act like a gasket and the ease of being machined or cast to whatever size the application is needed for. Urethane is the toughest and most abrasion-resistant of all elastomeric materials.
Cast Urethane Seals: Cast urethane seals are molded to tight tolerances and can be manufactured to withstand harsh conditions while lasting for years in even the most demanding industrial applications. Cast urethane seals are economical in any volume and provide excellent abrasion and chemical resistance. Common cast urethane seals applications are for bulk material transfer systems, mobile hydraulics, machining services and gas fittings.
Urethane Spray Nozzles: Urethane spray nozzles are found in hundreds of industries and applications. Custom urethane spray nozzles perform tasks from cleaning, lubricating, dispensing, sanitizing and high demanding applications like media blasting. Urethane is an ideal material due to its low cost while replacement parts can be customized for special applications. Urethane spray nozzle tips have the ability to tackle high demanding applications like sandblasting and will outperform most plastics, nylons and OEM replacements.
Abrasion Resistant Urethane Seals
Polyurethane Seals: Polyurethane seals are made from our best urethane material due to the extreme conditions in a wide variety of applications that we expect our seals to encounter. Plan Tech’s cast polyurethane seals will remain flexible in extreme weather conditions and are rated up to 180F working temperature in a variety of different applications.
Polyurethane Shaft Seals: Polyurethane shaft seals are a popular choice due to urethanes great ability to be molded into any profile while delivering great chemical resistance and sealing capability. Polyurethane shaft seals can be molded as big as 5 inches with tight tolerances for maximum sealing properties.
Urethane Slider Valve Seals: Urethane slider valve seals that are designed and manufactured by Plan Tech boost service life. With our team of experienced in-house urethane molding engineers who are specialized in seals, molding and waterjet cutting equipment, we produce custom urethane slider valve seals that offer the very best of tight tolerance.
Wear Resistant Urethane Seals
Hydraulic Polyurethane Seals: With our world-class facility and the exceptional technical prowess of our team of engineers, we are capable of casting hydraulic polyurethane seals in different hardness. So, no matter the profile of hydraulic polyurethane seals you require for your application, you can rest assured of finding your specification from our line of standard hydraulic polyurethane seals.
Urethane Filter Seals: Urethane filter seals are one of the several urethane products or parts that find applications in different industries due to their remarkable physical properties. The urethane filter seals manufactured by us at Plan Tech possess remarkable ability to resist wear, abrasion, corrosion, and chemicals.
Tight Tolerance Urethane Seals: Therefore, come to us with your drawing, sketch or idea of tight tolerance urethane seals and we will produce a product that will more than meet your expectations. One important factor about cast urethane parts is that the composition of the parts can easily be manipulated. You can choose whether you want an end product that is rigid, flexible or something that is even similar to rubber with a gummy texture.
Custom Urethane Seals
Below are some of the benefits and advantages of urethane seals:
Filling the Gap Between Rubber and Plastic
Urethane seals are outstandingly able to withstand more loads than rubber because they are harder than rubber and yet more flexible than plastics. Their flexibility is accountable for their strength and remarkable ability to resist impact.
Urethane seals 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. Their abrasion resistance ability 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 seals are highly capable of resisting oil and chemicals. This enables them to maintain stability (with minimal swelling) in water or oil etc. If you are looking for elastomer materials to use in subsea, then polyurethanes should be your ideal choice.
Affordable manufacturing process
Productions such as prototypes as well as one time products 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 Plan Tech’s urethane seals are very tough materials!
Made In USA Urethane Seals
Plan Tech fabricates custom urethane seals with a variety of thickness, colors, and hardness. Thickness ranges from .020’’ to ½” are most commonly water jet cut with a thickness tolerance of +/-.010 and are typically supplied in a durometer range between 60A and 90A. We routinely test according to ASTM standards to meet the tight tolerance custom urethane seals specifications. Custom thickness, colors or FDA requirements are also available or any other durometer from 20A to 75D. Another common molding process at Plan Tech is compression molding custom urethane seals. This allows us to have a radius or details on both faces of the part. Between molding, water jet cutting or compression molding we can handle any volume or size of your requirements for custom urethane seals!
Polyurethane is a great choice of material for urethane seals due to being chemical and abrasion resistant with a temperature range from -20F to 180F. Custom urethane seals consistently outperform plastic, rubber, and steel in its capacity to resist harsh environmental factors such as abrasion, heat, oil, acid, solvents and many chemicals. We also incorporate a full line of polyurethane additives for enhanced performance of our tight tolerance urethane seals!
