Mearthane Products Corporation Acquires Creative Urethanes, Inc.
Mearthane Products Corporation announced today that it has completed the acquisition of Creative Urethanes Inc., a provider of Reaction Injection Molding (RIM) and other polyurethane manufacturing services based in Winchester, Virginia.
Creative Urethanes is the right choice.
Over the past 30 years, our business philosophy has never changed - present the problem and if it should be solved with urethane, Creative Urethanes will solve it. We have taken hundreds of concepts and turned them into reality by serving our customers needs.
The industrial applications of urethanes are almost limitless! Within an industrial setting, you can benefit from urethane products where rubber, steel, aluminum, and other plastic processes are now being used.
Economic Molds... Molds can often be made directly from your prototype components for cast elastomer parts. For RIM, machined aluminum molds are typically more economic than other mold solutions.
Durability... Hardness ranges from the flexibility of Jello-like components to the rigidity associated with nylon gears. (Shore 20A to Shore 75D).
Solvent Resistance...Urethane provides excellent oil and solvent resistance.
Machinability...Harder urethane compounds can be machined, drilled and tapped on standard metal working equipment. Softer compounds can be ground.
Abrasive Resistance...It is common for urethane cast components replacing metal, rubber and plastics to have life improvements of 3 to 1.
Noise...Urethane components help reduce noise in many applications.
Electrical...Urethanes feature a favorable combination of electrical properties, i.e., resistivity, dielectric strength, dielectric constant and power factor.
Impact Resistance...Even the hardest urethanes have significantly better impact resistance than plastics.
Colors...A rainbow of colors is available.
Weight...Urethane can reduce your component's weight by over 50%, even when replacing aluminum!
