Model board protective coating

This was a project to polyurethane spray coat a CNC machined model board tool.

Model board (Styling Board or Tooling Board) is great for rapid prototyping but can be brittle and easily damaged. Our polyurethane spray coatings provide protection against knocks and wear.

We can spray a variety colours and texture can be smooth or stipple effect.

Walther Trowal CD1600 repair and reline

The beast is bare! The largest vibratory bowl to be relined at Lima has just been stripped of its old lining and blasted ready for inspection. This behemoth Walther Trowal CA1600 will take approx 400 kilo’s of polyurethane to reline. Over the next 2 weeks we will post images of the finished bowl.

Urethane Coated Bearings

We are now supplying urethane coated bearings in a wide range of sizes.

Urethane is moulded directly onto a single or double bearing.

Applications include, material handling, conveyor systems, skates, cable guides etc.

Now offering standard polyurethane products

For many years we have provided bespoke polyurethane products and components. We are now also offering standard polyurethane products in wide range of sizes.

To start with we will be offering Cylinders (rod), Bar (rectangle – square), Disc and Tubes (tubing).

Many of these items will be in stock but due to the vast range of sizes and hardness, there might be a 4 week lead time.

Coating foam with Polyurethane

Over the last year we have been developing a process of coating foam with polyurethane. We are working with various foam companies to develop methods for coating all types of foam.

Using polyurethane and polyurea spray we are able to give foam substrates increased durability and impact resistance.

Typically foam products are quite fragile when not covered and fall apart very easily. Polyurethane coatings will provide an increased resistance to those stresses caused by bending and deformation.

In the past foam products have typically been covered by stitched pvc covers. These are time consuming to produce and limited to simple shapes. Polyurethane coatings can be sprayed onto any shape and retain intricate detail.

Bonding agent is applied to steel roller prior to the moulding process being carried out. Brush or spray application. Polyurethane is dispensed, placed under a vacuum to remove any enveloped air and poured into the mould cavity.
Excess polyurethane is faced of the roller on a lathe. This is part of the trimming operation.
Rollers are palletised and inspected ready for dispatch to the customer.
