When you require urethane products that have varying degrees of hardness, ESCO Plastics can provide multi-durometer custom castings that are suitable for a wide variety of manufacturing applications. Urethane parts can be poured with both hard and soft segments on the same part. The different hardness materials bond together without the need for screws or other fasteners, making them superior in terms of strength and durability.
Some parts require a soft segment to seal in an application while a harder segment provides the structural support that is needed. Multi-durometer parts perform well in these applications.
Multi-durometer parts often do away with the need for metal backing or support plates. A simple change away from these expensive metal backing plates reduces costs, improves delivery, and removes the corrosiveness of the metal. Improve your application’s performance by utilizing the versatility of this multi-durometer process.
