Cast Polyurethane Pads and Bushings Manufacturer

Novathane makes polyurethane pads and bushings in a wide variety of shapes, sizes, and formulations.

We focus on understanding exactly what our customers need by making extra effort to communicate with them clearly and proactively.

Our strong problem-solving capabilities coupled with our potential breadth of resources and technical knowledge enable us to specify and formulate the pad or bushing you require.

Our urethane pads can be formulated to reduce noise, vibration, and harshness (NVH) on machinery and other equipment, thus extending the service life of the machinery and improving the quality of its output. Polyurethane bushings act as independent plain bearings but unlike conventional bearings have no rolling parts. In many ways, they provide superior performance compared to rubber bushings. They do not degrade as quickly and offer better abrasion and wear resistance under rough use. Trust Novathane to provide perfectly formulated pads and bushings for your application.

Typical Applications

Polyurethane bushings are great for suspension parts like upper control arms, motor mounts, or shackles, and work well in applications requiring good vibration dampening. They are also used in many other industrial applications in the automotive, oil & gas, mining, aviation, paper, and construction sectors. They are often found in applications exposed to high degrees of wear.

Polyurethane pads work well in applications requiring strong abrasion resistance and exceptional load-bearing performance. Polyurethane pads find service as bumper, mounting, and impact pads and sometimes, as gaskets. They often can serve as vibration dampers to protect fragile parts or equipment during processing. They’re often used on conveyor belt systems and bumpers and stops since they readily absorb the impact of products moving on the system.
