Custom Polyurethane Products
Engineering Support to Help You Beat Tough Problems.
PSI Urethanes, Inc. welcomes the challenge that custom polyurethane products can bring. When other companies have turned away potential clients, we welcome the opportunity to do the unusual and, the seemingly impossible.
Our in-house engineering and technical assistance staff can help you create custom urethane molded parts that meet your application needs and solve your problems. We have a wide range of formulations that can be geared specifically to your requirements.
In-house resins include TDI ethers and esters, MDI ethers and esters, and aliphatic resins. With these resins, we can manufacture durometers from 25 shore OO (soft as a marshmallow) to 70 shore D (hard as a bowling ball). All our formulations can be produced in a wide variety of shapes and sizes. If you require a resin that we do not carry in-house, we can order it and manufacture your products.
Our in-house mold making shop has been updated to include a versatile range of processing machinery, including a CNC Mill and multiple CNC Lathes. This new machinery has opened our capabilities to machine aluminum molds that are more intricate than ever before. With this new equipment, we are able to cut our lead times for your custom production orders with more efficient mold manufacturing and in most cases, by cutting out a secondary machining process to finish out parts.
If you have a unique, one-of-a-kind project that requires only a few parts or if you are needing to test out a part prior to purchasing a multiple cavity metal mold, PSI Urethanes now offers 3D printed molds for producing small runs. There can be some limitations, such as design, size and surface finish, however the cost is significantly lower and lead time is faster than producing a custom metal mold. Ask your sales associate if your project is a good candidate to be produced with a 3D printed mold.
PSI produces urethane products ranging in size from less than a gram to over 2500 pounds. We are known for our willingness to do short-run production, prototypes, as well as high volume components.
Cast polyurethane is an ideal material for constructing parts that require tough physical properties and superior impact resistance.
Bonding and Recovery
We have the capability to bond our polyurethane to metal and many other substrates. If you have rollers or wheels that need to be recovered, we can strip off the old material and recover them with the polyurethane formulation that best fits the application. That is a cost-saving for many customers, especially when the cores or inserts are intricate or costly.
Our technical representatives and design staff will work closely with you to meet your specifications – from concept to prototype to production. PSI has spent over 50 years setting the industry standard in custom urethane products, staying on the cutting edge of advances in new materials, designs, and processing technologies.
