Industrial Polyurethane Products

Brain Industries supplies a range of products with the option of polyurethane coatings to protect and extend the life of equipment. Our genius engineers also custom design industrial polyurethane products to solve our customers’ business issues.

Clients from a range of industries – from mining to agriculture, oil & gas, marine & shipping, transport tunnelling to waste management – are benefitting from using  polyurethane. Brain are the experts in polyurethane industrial equipment products.

Here’s just some of the ways Brain Industries is using polyurethane to benefit customers.industrial 

We can vary the polyurethane in terms of its hardness, elongation, tensile, and abrasion resistance.  We manufacture most moulds in-house to guarantee quality.

Benefits of Polyurethane

Long lasting to extend the life of existing products – It typically exceeds the life of the product it’s being used in. It outlasts rubber by a factor of 10 in wear applications.

Fire safety. Depending on the choice of starting materials, short-term heat resistance up to 250°C can be achieved.

Flexible. It moulds endlessly, with no joining or splicing

Efficient, cost effective and sustainable. It prevents wearing of existing infrastructure. In some products, such as pulleys and conveyors, it reduces downtime because change outs do not need to occur as often.

WHS benefits – Help reduce OHS risks and to prevent injuries occuring from abrasion, impact, pinch-point, crush and trips. If you’re changing out equipment less often, that reduces WHS risk. 

Customised Brain Polyurethane solutions to your business problems

And they said it couldn’t be done!

One example of our customised solutions is the project we did for a wire rope manufacturer. We have put a 6mm Brain polyurethane coating on the belt of their 4 groove rubber V pulley.

Brain's Genius Industrial Polyurethane Products

Brain's polyurethene products guarantee quality

Brain Industries use the latest, state of the art manufacturing equipment and sources premium polyurethane from the largest supplier of high performance prepolymers in Australia and Asia.

Our two large polyurethane ovens mean we can offer quick turnaround on projects. The ovens measure 4 by 3 by 2.5m so no job too big (or too small). They heat up to 160 degrees Celsius.

Importantly we have our own degassing equipment on site which ensures the product is not porous.

Our Australian owned and operated supplier, ERA Polymers, has more than 25 years’ experience specialising in the field of polyurethane chemistry. Being owned and operated by industrial chemists, they have built an enviable reputation for outstanding product quality.

ERA Polymers is certified to AS/NZS ISO9001 Quality Management System and  accredited for compliance with ISO/IEC 17025 (www.nata.com.au) This ensures testing is to strict guidelines for consistency and repeatability.

FAQ

Most frequent questions and answers
Polyurethane is a plastic material which safely and effectively shield exposed surfaces from the elements and various forms of pollution, so that they look better and last longer. Polyurethanes are versatile, modern and safe. The durability, corrosion resistance and weather resistance of polyurethanes makes them suitable for coating all kinds of surfaces. They are used in a wide variety of applications to create all manner of consumer and industrial products that play a crucial role in making our lives more convenient, comfortable and environmentally friendly. Polyurethanes are formed by reacting a polyol (an alcohol with more than two reactive hydroxyl groups per molecule) with a diisocyanate or a polymeric isocyanate in the presence of suitable catalysts and additives. Because a variety of diisocyanates and a wide range of polyols can be used to produce polyurethane, a broad spectrum of materials can be produced to meet the needs of specific applications.
The underlying chemistry is the result of one man’s genius. Prof. Dr. Otto Bayer is recognised as the “father” of the polyurethanes industry for his invention of the basic diisocyanate polyaddition process. The origin of polyurethane dates back to the beginning of World War II, when it was developed as a replacement for rubber.
