Polyurethanes are omnipresent in industry. The GROUPE MAILLARD INDUSTRIE has added to its plastics processing offer by including polyurethane elastomers.
GMI is involved from product definition right through to production. The group has the skills to find appropriate solutions to all technical issues from design to industrialization, managing the research, modelling, prototypes, tooling, pre-series and series phases of polyurethane part production for its customers.
GMI fulfils the requirements of manufacturers from different sectors.
GMI has extensive experience in casting and spraying polyurethane.
We manufacture parts for use in industry and have the necessary expertise to oversee your project:
— Design and manufacture of moulds to ensure perfect control of all production parameters
— Over-moulding of inserts
— Bonding of polyurethane on all materials (ferrous and non-ferrous metals, plastic, wood, glass…)…
In the field of expanded polyurethanes, the GROUPE MAILLARD INDUSTRIE carries out the foaming of parts with foams of variable density according to previously defined recommendations.
The GROUPE MAILLARD INDUSTRIE has several machines, make it possible to produce parts of different densities simultaneously.
Characteristics of polyurethane elastomer
— Hardness: from 45 shore A to 90 shore D
— Many colours
— Formulas adapted to required properties
Polyurethane elastomers are commonly used in industry as they are able to fulfil many mechanical and chemical requirements:
— Very high breaking, notch and puncture resistance
— Ageing resistance
— Exceptional resistance to abrasion, cutting and ripping
— High coefficient of adhesion
— Protect areas of contact or friction
— Absorb vibrations or shocks
— Avoid deterioration of parts during handling and transport operations
— Increase the lifespan of products and equipment
— Fill hollow parts or cavities for thermal insulation, waterproofness or to make a part more rigid
