Automotive Castable Urethane Products
The invention of the automobile has brought widespread societal change, influencing where people work, live, and play. For dependable operation, however, they need thousands of interconnected components to function reliably.
Take your automotive application to new levels of operational performance with castable urethane products from Whitefield Plastics. As an ISO-certified manufacturer of polyurethane parts, we offer innovative solutions for the automobile industry and its supply chain partners.
The Polyurethane Edge for Automobiles
Urethane casting creates durable and sturdy polyurethane parts with precision. The process uses a 3D-printed master pattern and silicone mold to deliver high-quality components in a fraction of the time and cost of injection molding.
Polyurethane products can improve automotive applications in a variety of ways. Castable urethane parts are flexible, which enables them to reduce structural stress and strain or component vibration. They are also capable of encapsulating and protecting electrical components, pipes, and cables. Here are some additional advantages of castable urethane parts.
- Repels water
- Resists chemicals
- UV stabilized
- High strength
- Capable of operating in humid and moist locations
- Doesn’t oxidize
- High load-bearing properties
- Absorbs vibration and shock
- Dampens noise
- Withstands abrasion
People use automobiles to get from Points A to B in a range of environmental conditions, including snowfall, heat, dust, and rain. Durable and versatile, automotive polyurethane products are a perfect way to ward off the elements. They resist aging and tearing as well as extreme temperatures and moisture intrusion, which keeps away mold, mildew, and fungus. The ability to fill gaps blocks the entrance of debris, cutting down on abrasion and wear.
Polyurethane can be fabricated into almost any shape or size. Here are common uses for castable urethane in motor vehicle applications.

Cast urethane starts as a liquid polymer that’s dispensed into a mold and post-cured in ovens. The process is capable of including auxiliary hardware like thread inserts or over-mold existing parts. Additionally, it can incorporate surface texturing and in-mold decoration. Polymer materials can be formulated to exhibit an array of characteristics.
Adaptable and customizable, urethane casting is suitable for the production of prototype designs and new applications. It’s also ideal for the development of custom components designed to replace traditional metal, rubber, or plastic parts that have failed.
