Elasto-Mix low pressure cast mixing technology
The AutoRIM Elasto-Mix range of multi-component PUR elastomer dispensing units for higher viscosity materials at elevated temperatures. Designed for maximum reliability and also ease of operation. The Elasto-Mix range includes metering, mixing, and dosing machines for cast elastomers, GsPU and epoxy resin systems. The Megamix range of high delivery output units includes the Qube used by processors of filled and unfilled elastomers. This is especially in the offshore oil and gas industries for glass syntactic polyurethanes GSpu.
An elastomer is a polymer with the property of visco-elasticity manufactured from the mixing of a di-isocyanate and long chain polyol at the appropriate temperature, ratio and also output. The mixed elastomer casts (fills the mould/aperture) heat dissipates and the chemicals cure. This then produces a solid polyurethane elastomer of a versatility not easily matched. Invented as a replacement for natural rubber, polyurethane elastomers offer considerable advantages in customising and engineering elastomers. Including, benefits of environmental stability, abrasion resistance and ease of processing.
AutoRIM are pleased to work with leading suppliers of pu chemistry to the urethane industry. These include BASF, Baxenden, Covestro, Dow-Hyperlast, Educhem, Huntsman, IFS Group, Notedome and also Rosehill Polymers for elastomer formulated systems.
