Foaming Polyurethane protects hydraulic roof supports from debris.
Rocky Hill, CT 06067
Jun 26, 2014
Pour-in-place Loctite® MR5898™ bonds to pockets and hydraulic cylinders. By foaming up to fill entire cavities and adhering to edges, foam blocks out debris, particulate, teeth, or tools that might damage equipment while remaining flexible enough to allow free movement of hydraulic leg. This self-extinguishing, low-odor foam, intended for use underground and in confined spaces, has 2-part formula that begins to foam minutes after mixing, and becomes tack-free within minutes of pouring.

Drape Forming can create desired shape without vacuum.
Emco Industrial Plastics, Inc.
Cedar Grove, NJ 07009
May 29, 2013
Drape Forming consists of process whereby plastic sheet is heated to state where it can be pressed, bent, or formed into or over mandrel to create desired shape. Since plastic is typically not stretched during process, it retains its full dimensional thickness from that of its original form. If sheet is clear or textured, it will also retain surface features post-processing. Typical applications include motorcycle and boat windshields, as well as medical devices that match up to human form.
