We process polyurethane using the two principal methods of open pour casting and closed injection moulding. Each process has key benefits depending on order volumes, product complexity and required physical properties of the component’s end use. This production flexibility means that we are best placed to provide our customer with the best solution whether producing high volumes or single run bespoke items.
As a company we have regularly invested in the latest polyurethane processing and dispensing technology to ensure consistent accuracy during the mixing and dispensing process over thousands of cycles.
