Taking care of business.

Advances in the fabrication of polyurethane continually generate new applications for this versatile material. Office automation equipment, copiers, printers, collators, and transportation systems have all benefited.

MPC’s business machine components demonstrate improved abrasion and wear characteristics, chemical resistance, resiliency, and sound dampening in a broad range of applications. Our accomplishments have been at the forefront of advances in the business machine industry for nearly half a century and we continue to be a technology leader today.

Starting in 1967, MPC pioneered the development of polyurethane rollers for copiers and five short years later introduced the microcellular urethane platen for postal meters. The Company’s intellectual properties for conductive urethanes used in electrostatic dissipation and tribocharge management include conductive polyurethane rollers and pads for the following applications:
