Oil & Gas Castable Urethane Products
From extreme heat and swirling dust to bitter cold and powerful ocean swells, the oil and gas industry regularly operates in harsh offshore and onshore conditions. The equipment used to explore, drill, extract, refine, and transport the energy that powers societies must stand up to stress.
Improve your oil and gas application with castable urethane products from Whitefield Plastics, a principal supplier of high-quality polyurethane parts for demanding applications. We offer a range of urethane casting solutions tailored to meet the needs of the oilfield industry and its service providers and supply chain partners.
Made for Harsh Operating Environments
Urethane casting creates robust and high-performing 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.
Oil and gas polyurethane products can enhance oilfield applications in a variety of ways. Castable urethane parts can flex, which reduces the stress and strain of structural materials or vibrating components. They’re also appropriate for encapsulating and protecting electrical components, pipes, and cables. Further advantages of castable urethane parts include:
- Temperature resistance
- Doesn’t absorb water
- Resists corrosion
- UV stabilized
- High strength
- Resists the growth of algae and fungus
- Capable of operating in humid and moist locations
- Doesn’t oxidize
- High load-bearing properties
- Absorbs vibration and shock
- Dampens noise
- Resists abrasion
A lot of oil and gas operations take place outdoors, which means vital machinery and equipment are exposed to the elements. Immense strength enables polyurethane to withstand the harshest weather conditions. Because of this, it’s ideal for drilling, marine environments, and hydraulic fracturing, where pressure, heat, and water present various challenges.
Castable urethane parts are also extremely resistant to chemical corrosion. As a result, they’re used for fracing, drilling, hardware protection, and more. Safeguarding equipment from chemical corrosion reduces repair and replacement frequency, which saves money and avoids downtime.

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.
