Urethane Solutions for the Mining Industry

Durability and Performance You Can Trust

The mining industry demands tough, reliable equipment that can withstand harsh conditions. Downtime due to broken parts can significantly impact your bottom line. At Universal Urethane, we understand these challenges.

Polyurethane offers a superior alternative to traditional materials commonly used in mining applications. Polyurethane’s exceptional strength, abrasion resistance, and tear resistance make it ideal for components that endure heavy wear and tear. Unlike rubber, which can degrade when exposed to oils and chemicals, polyurethane maintains its integrity even in harsh environments. Furthermore, urethane’s excellent dampening properties can minimize vibration and noise, improving operator comfort and equipment longevity.

By incorporating our high-performance urethane products into your mining operations, you can experience reduced maintenance costs, improved efficiency, and extended equipment life.
