Extreme weather is nothing new for Midwesterners. Rain, snow, sun, or floods, we must be ready for almost anything in the Midwest. And our machinery needs to be, too. With below-freezing temperatures in the winter, machinery is often the first victim to heavy snow and freezing temps. Fortunately, Sioux Rubber & Urethane has you and your machinery covered! With high-quality urethane products, we keep your equipment tougher than the weather and lasting longer.
Urethane is derived from ethyl ester and is a crystalline compound that is colorless and odorless. Although urethanes are not quite rubber, they fall into a category of materials known as rubber. Urethanes fall somewhere between plastics and rubber. They are more pliable and softer than plastic, but also harder than rubber. It is these qualities that contribute to their exceptional load-bearing abilities, impact resistance, and overall toughness.
Whether you need custom cast urethane parts or clamp pads, here at Sioux Rubber & Urethane, we tackle it all; whatever it takes to fight abrasion, corrosion, and impact damage on equipment of all shapes, sizes, and functions – we can make it happen. Some products are custom-built and applied individually, while others are designed to fit industry specs. The rubber and urethane protection that we provide serves equipment from a wide variety of OEMs with one goal in mind: to extend the life of equipment.
Here in the Midwest, we’re not strangers to extreme weather. Each of us has sweated it out in the blazing sun and bundled up in subzero temps – anything to get the job done! But perhaps you’ve asked yourself, “How much cold can my machinery take?” as the temperatures begin to drop. 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.
