Polyurethane Rods

Cast Urethane Rods

Custom Abrasion Resistant Polyurethane Rods

With a long history of outstanding quality, superior product performance, and excellent customer service, PSI is a trusted provider of custom urethane rods and urethane rod stock. 

Urethane rods offer several important benefits due to their elastomeric properties. PSI’s urethane rods are made of tough, crack-resistant, and abrasion-resistant polyurethane, which lasts significantly longer than conventional rubbers and plastics. We provide custom diameters, lengths, hardness, and colors with little or no tooling costs.
