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 benefiting from using polyurethane. Brain are the experts in polyurethane industrial equipment products.
We are specialists in fire retardant and anti-static (FRAS) polyurethane products for the underground mining sector. Brain Industries stock common 10SC32 parts.
Here’s just some of the ways Brain Industries is using polyurethane to benefit customers.
We can vary the polyurethane in terms of its hardness, elongation, tensile, and abrasion resistance. We manufacture most moulds in-house to guarantee quality.
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.
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 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.
Our team are standing by to create genius solutions to make your operation safer, more efficient and more effective.
