UW-ELAST IN POLYURETHANE INDUSTRY
UW-ELAST AB has been active in the polyurethane industry more than 40 years. Today, our 50 employees produce more than 300 tonnes of polyurethane products annually.
The offshore industry and companies operating in the marine sector are amongst our regular customers. Consequently, we are closely involved with specially engineered materials for use in tough, humid conditions. Slitan®, our in-house developed polyurethane, meets severe requirements in respect of hydrolysis resistance, wear and operational durability. Our new production facility for very large parts makes us easily the most important polyurethane manufacturer in Scandinavia.
UW-ELAST AB co-operates with partners in the rubber industry that have experience in roll coating with rubber.
UW-ELAST IN THE OFFSHORE INDUSTRY
Our orders to the Offshore Industry has increased considerably during the past 7 years.
Our present production for the offshore industry includes dynamic bend stiffeners, static bend stiffeners, bend restrictors and cable and flow line protection.
A bend restrictor (BR) is used where the loads on a cable (umbilical/flow line) are static rather than dynamic (a bend stiffener is more suited for this latter).
Injection moulding of polyurethane works the way that a fixed raw material is melted under high pressure and rapidly injected inte a mould.
