Custom is King Part 2 – Our Innovative Processes

To us, being a leader in our industry means more than offering the most extensive selection of products and services. At MPC, it’s all about creating custom solutions for the unique needs of our valued customers. When we manufacture components from high performance semi-conductive urethanes, they need to be machined in order to achieve the exact specifications and traits required for the purpose they serve. As we outlined last week in our Custom is King blog, it’s a combination of machining techniques and expertise that allows us to confidently produce machined urethane products with the precision and accuracy that our clients deserve. In that blog, we discussed the cutting tools we use, and featured 3 of our advanced machining processes, including drilling, parting and milling. Today we will discuss the other machining services we offer, including contouring, grinding, sawing, facing and turning.

Machining Cast Polyurethanes, Part One

Here at Mearthane, we frequently get asked a lot of questions about the process of machining cast polyurethanes, from the steps involved to the traits of the finished product, and everything in between. As urethane experts, we’re always happy to take some time to sit down and share helpful information with our valued customers so that they may better understand what we do, and how much care we put into the custom urethanes we produce. Today we’ll be discussing machining cast urethanes, including the differences in how urethanes of different durometers involve different types of machining, the different tools involved, and so much more. Curious about how the urethane experts machine cast polyurethanes to create custom products? Let’s begin! (more…)

4 Impressive Urethane Properties you never knew about


urethane ringsOver the past several decades, Urethane has swiftly become the material of choice for so many of today’s performance-driven applications, and with good reason. Urethane offers unmatched mechanical and physical properties, excelling where other materials fail. The simple truth is, urethane can be formulated to be lighter, stronger, faster, quieter, and cheaper than most alternative materials. Urethane’s biggest strength is arguably the potential for so many unique formulations which make it more resistant to abrasion, cutting, and tearing, or more flexible. Of all the important traits and benefits of different urethane formulations, some features hold more value in industrial applications, solidifying urethane’s importance in our country’s infrastructure.
