Our urethane is highly inspected post pour both according to the customers specifications and our high standards. Sometimes when the urethane comes out of the molds there is some flash that needs removal. While our molds are extremely tight and defect free, flash does happen from time to time simply based on the part design. Reports from our customers in the past have stated that the flash from other urethane suppliers does not get removed and we are always constantly reminded that we do such a good job with prep and finish of our product. We always want the end user to get the product and put it to immediate use. Look at the before and after shots of our urethane products and you should agree that Acrotech Inc. Lake City has such a high quality product and we welcome you to try it out next. If you have a custom urethane project that needs quoting send us a file of what you are working with. Our quoting process is quick and easy.
Acrotech Inc. is known for all kinds of urethane manufacturing, especially custom urethane molds, custom urethane and sheet metal roll benders. One thing that the general public probably doesn’t know about Acrotech Inc. is that we manufacture mass quantities of precision cast urethane sheets. and our thinnest in the lineup is 1/16 of an inch! You guessed it, YES we stock this size on a normal everyday basis. This material can be used for so many different things, gaskets, seals, pads, liners, the list goes on. At only 1/16″ Thick this sheet is still highly durable and extremely strong and tear resistant. Available in any standard durometer this thin material is also very versatile, easy to cut and use. Please have a look at this picture and see how thin this actually is…
If you think its not thin enough for your application we have gone thinner and have done 1/32″ sheets that were custom to a very large client. That is nearly paper thin and not easy for just any urethane manufacturer to do. The next time you have a need for some thin urethane in any durometer please don’t hesitate to Contact Us. We have the experience to help you complete your project.

Summer and Urethane
Acrotech Inc. Is currently producing three vertical rollers for a special application customer. A short while back we had a customer contact us with the desire to make a special part consisting of a half round strip of stainless steel metal with a clamping system on it. They sent in prototypes of the band and had us roll several different diameters. They liked the outcome so much that they decided on three urethane vertical rolling machines (Acrotech V-1006) for their new product line. With these rollers they will be spitting out parts at a blazing 22 Feet Per Minute. (not including feed time) The best thing about the vertical rollers is that they release the part much quicker than our standard rolling machines allowing for more parts per hour than most any other machine on the market.
If you have an application that you think will fit within the capabilities of the V-1006 Urethane Vertical Rolling Machine please Contact Us to speak with an engineer about your application. Remember we will gladly accept your sample parts to test roll before you make a decision on purchasing a unit. In addition we will gladly roll small batches for you at very reasonable prices if you are just starting out or prototyping a production part.
