Cast Polyurethane Rollers and Bumpers Manufacturer

Novathane designs, engineers, and manufacturers polyurethane rollers and bumpers for either new or replacement applications.

As a polyurethane manufacturer, we have significant experience dealing with legacy parts and equipment that need to be refurbished but lack engineering drawings or blueprints. Sometimes the failed parts are made of a different polymer or rubber, which Novathane can reverse engineer to replace with a more robust polyurethane replacement.

The combination of Novathane’s broad competence and polyurethane’s versatility gives customers the flexibility they need to develop new products and revitalize legacy equipment. Polyurethane’s versatility in terms of hardness levels makes it ideal for manufacturing rollers and bumpers, and Novathane’s intense focus on communicating with customers ensures the solution overcomes the challenges dealing with custom solutions can present.

Typical Applications

Rubber rollers are often utilized in material handling, assembly, and manufacturing operations. Urethane bumpers are designed to guard, stop, align, and protect a machine or workpiece during the manufacturing process. Uses range from making rollers that apply the undercoating varnish on cans before their labels are applied to equipping conveyors used with underground boring machines. Novathane rollers and bumpers are used extensively in the steel and metal industries, including for aluminum extrusion production. Other industries include paper, oil & gas, woodworking, and other process-heavy environments.

Polyurethane’s Advantages

Polyurethane can be formulated to have superior wear and abrasion resistance, making it ideal for use as a roller or bumper. It is also high-impact tolerant and can operate under a wide temperature range.

  • Abrasion and wear resistance
  • High impact tolerance
  • Wide temperature range
  • Tear resistance
  • High tensile strength
  • Chemical and oil resistance
