Our long-term emphasis has always been on product durability, innovation and quality, all of which are demonstrated by our polyurethane edged products.
Skilled toolmakers make moulds in-house, and using low pressure injection moulding machines, specifically designed for us, we are able to cast around the mould creating any desired edging profile.
We operate two polyurethane systems within our process:-
Reaction Injection Moulding (RIM) is the result of a reaction between isocyanate and polyol as they are injected into a closed mould at low pressure. The two components are mixed together as they flow into the mould as a low viscosity liquid, and the reaction, which increases the temperature and the pressure at the surface of the tool, forms the polyurethane part in the tool cavity.
We are increasingly specifying RIM parts as a more repetitve and cost effective alternative to GRP parts, and because this process is conducted in-house, we are able to maintain control of product from tooling design through to manufacture.
Our RIM parts have a Shore hardness of 80D (hard), and can be supplied primed, painted or surface treated with graphics to simulate various textures.
