Urathon® Return Roll

Advanced Non-stick Solution

It’s not even a competition! The properties of polyurethane always outlast, outperform and outrank old-fashioned elements like steel or rubber. Introducing the Urathon Return Roll.

In comparable material handling applications, urethane lasts at least 3X longer than rubber and infinitely exceeds the performance of steel. How quickly can you calculate your reduced maintenance costs?

Our polyurethane is homemade, which allows shorter lead times, better quality control and an understanding of chemistry you don’t get when you outsource production.
