From roads and bridges to buildings and parks, the infrastructure people use daily is not possible without the construction industry. While hulking steels often garner attention, a structure’s success often hinges upon the lightweight and long-lasting castable polyurethane products.
Improve your construction application with castable urethane products from Whitefield Plastics. We’re a leading supplier of high-quality polyurethane parts for infrastructure and construction projects.
Benefits of Infrastructure Polyurethane Products
With urethane casting, obtaining custom durable parts for construction applications is simple. 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.
Integrating castable urethane products into an infrastructure project brings an array of benefits. They can flex, which curbs stress and strain on vital structural materials. Furthermore, castable polyurethane is perfect for encapsulating and protecting electrical components, pipes, and cables. Here are some additional advantages of castable urethane parts.
- Doesn’t absorb water
- Soft and pliable
- UV stabilized
- High strength
- Doesn’t oxidize
- High load-bearing properties
- Absorbs vibration and shock
- Dampens noise
- Resists abrasion
- Hydrolytic stabilization
- Resists chemicals
Castable urethane products have strong weather resistance. Resilient against aging and tearing, they stand up to extreme temperatures and block moisture intrusion. This keeps away mold, mildew, and fungus.
Polyurethane can be fabricated into almost any shape or size. Here are common uses for castable urethane in construction 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.
Versatile and customizable, urethane casting is perfect 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.
When building the structures that societies depend upon, functionality is the utmost priority. Failure can endanger bystanders and the environment as well as bring transportation and commerce to a halt.
At Whitefield Plastics, we stand behind our work. Material is purchased from reputable suppliers, and compliance is verified upon arrival. Our inspection team uses precise testing and measuring equipment to ensure every part produced surpasses applicable industry standards and customer specifications. All orders are audited for accuracy before shipment.
