It’s common for equipment to fail in the winter, due to the below-freezing temperatures. Without proper maintenance and care, you could end up with costly damages caused by extreme cold. The bad news: we can’t do anything about the weather. The good news: we can help you protect your machinery from malfunctions caused by dropping temperatures.
Urethane and rubber are amazing materials. They are used in a variety of products from footwear and insulation to rubber bands and tires. We use urethane and rubber for coatings, coverings, and molded products because it is so great at absorbing impact, reducing abrasion and resisting corrosion. One of the reasons urethane and rubber are so versatile is due to their varying degrees of durometers.
Since Endurawear Rubber and Endurawear Urethane offer the best protection against abrasion, corrosion and impact, it’s no surprise that they help a variety of industries. In fact, anytime there is a machine or part that needs to last longer and work with fewer repairs, applying rubber or urethane is often the answer.
It may be summer, but learning about the awesome properties and abilities of urethane should never take a break. Polyurethanes mimic the traits of both plastic and rubber to create a product that offers both superior abrasion control and impact resistance. Polyurethane is a mixture of two (or more) liquid chemicals, a prepolymer and a curative, that when combined at the proper ratio and temperatures produce a chemical reaction resulting in a solid finished product.
How often have you had to replace your metal conveyance equipment? Unprotected steel takes a beating from the bushels of corn, soybeans and other grains that tumble down it to silos or trucks. When a spout goes down, all processes are halted and the lost dollar signs start spinning in your head. Instead of sitting on your hands waiting for a spout to be repaired or replaced, avoid the situation entirely by investing in a wear- and abrasion solution like Tuff-Tube[Symbol].
Polyurethane is truly a wonder material! According to the American Chemistry Council, it is used to give clothing extra stretch, for thermal insulation in refrigerators and freezers, in nearly every part of today’s automobiles, in flooring and home furnishings, not to mention in building materials and manufacturing.
Endurawear Urethane is one of our signature products. We use this proprietary blend of polyurethane to enhance the performance of machinery and equipment to provide a longer lasting life. Our Endurawear Urethane is mixed for superior impact resistance, better abrasion resistance and load release to decrease maintenance costs and increase operating margins. Polyurethane is much more than just another type of plastic. Its special characteristics make it uniquely useful for many industries.
