We have recently successfully completed an interesting project for a new consumer products company. The customer required a bespoke polyurethane drip tray moulding, which would form part of a new piece of high-end bar equipment.
One of the key customer requirements was a bubble and blemish free finish to the polyurethane and in addition they required a variety of colour options.
Our Production and Sales teams worked closely with the customer throughout the process to produce one off-tool samples. Initially the surface finish and hardness of these first samples was not suitable for the customer’s needs.
With the customer’s feedback our team made some amendments to the tooling and the casting technique and produced further samples for them. These had a smoother finish and were at a slightly harder Shore A hardness, which the customer was very happy with.
Initially the Production team produced these parts in a black polyurethane material but have been able to manufacture them in blue also. It is always possible to colour match to a RAL number provided to us, which gives the customer a full range of colour options going forward.
The customer was happy with the finished product and commented:
“Clifton Rubber produced bespoke polyurethane mouldings for us to our design and worked closely with us to develop our product. We’re very happy with the end result and would recommend them to others”
