Materials made from polyurethane have a much shorter lead time than their conventional thermoplastic counterparts, as well as significantly more economical tooling costs. Their outstanding performance and durability in harsh environments also mean that you will be replacing and repairing parts and products far less often than you would with other, more traditional products. This will save both time and money, two valuable resources, for your company. If you work in an environment where there are concerns about parts being exposed to specific elements such as electricity, water, or oil, then you definitely need to contact ESCO Plastics and learn how our polyurethane rollers can save money for your company.
At ESCO Plastics, we know that sometimes you need polyurethane rollers that will be used for very small-scale jobs, and other times you need extra-large rollers. We have the versatility and equipment needed to cover minute rolls that require meticulous attention to surface finish and tolerance, as well as larger rolls up to 14 inches in diameter that measure up to 120 inches long. Our urethane rollers come in hardnesses from 10 Shore A to 80 Shore D, and our experienced machine shop can hold rigid tolerances as needed. Whether you have an existing urethane roller that needs recovering, or a core that needs to be covered for the first time, ESCO Plastics provides the full-range of professional services you that need to produce high-quality goods.

Polyurethane products have such a diversity of properties that they are considered the leading choice of engineers who are looking for long-lasting materials that can handle harsh conditions such as extremely heavy loads and high-stress environments. They routinely outperform comparable products manufactured from rubber, plastic, and even steel. Some of the harsh environmental factors that urethane products can resist include: abrasions, heat, solvents, oil, and acids. They also produce much less noise than their plastic, rubber, and metal counterparts. For example, chain-drive designs, conveyor belt systems, and assembly line systems all benefit from the noise abatement that urethane products provide.
Polyurethane rollers consistently outperform and outlast all other products when tried in the harshest conditions. They are generally both wear and cut resistant and can carry up to four times the load that rubber products can handle. If you are looking for a product that can handle a harsh environment, as well as save your company time and money, then you need to look at urethane rollers from ESCO Plastics.
Most people are familiar with the saying, “Time is money,” and it has never been more true than today. When your system has to stop for part repairs or replacements, you are losing money. Polyurethane rollers are incredibly durable, and this quality will help increase your company’s profitability. Picture having parts and components in your system that outlast your typical rate and then calculate the money saved from that extension of production. You can begin to see the value of investing in quality, molded urethane products. Urethane products have strong bonding properties, which means that they can bond to a wide range of products like plastics, metals, and wood. This makes them ideal materials to use for wheels, rollers, and inserts.
