Why Use Polyurethane?
Polyurethane combines the elasticity of rubber with the durability of metal, making it the perfect material for a wide array of applications. The following are just a few of the major advantages of choosing polyurethane:
- Polyurethane is highly versatile and can be customised to be as hard or soft as you need it to be
- Polyurethane is a non-conductive and non-sparking material
- Polyurethane is easily mouldable and can be produced to allow for elastic memory
- Polyurethane is great for noise reduction
- Polyurethane is lightweight
- Polyurethane is cost-effective
One of the major advantages of choosing polyurethane is that it is extremely hard wearing, and won't be affected by elements that can damage plastic and metal components. Polyurethane is resistant to:
- Cuts and tears
- Dry heat
- Cold flow
- High impacts
Another huge benefit to choosing polyurethane is that specialised additives can be incorporated to better suit your specific needs. Among the additives we offer at Polymac are:
- Impregnated graphite: Reduces friction, increases service life and reduces service wear (typically used for truck suspension bushes)
- FRAS (Fire Resistant Anti Static): Frequently used for underground coal mines and tested by the Mine Safety Technology Centre
- Ceramics: Increases polyurethane wear resistance in abrasive environments (typically used for conveyor belt cleaners)
Our polyurethane products are available in a wide range of colours, including:
- Sky blue
Fluro and natural colours are available.
At Polymac Australia, we can manufacture customised polyurethane products for a broad range of industrial, domestic, rural and mining applications . The following are some examples of the specialised products we produce for clients throughout Mackay.
Caterpillar (Cat) Parts
Polymac has been involved with the refurbishing of quality Mackay Cat mounts for more than 18 years. We currently service the 3500 and 3400 series, though we plan to service other Cat mount types in the near future.
Polymac Truck Bushes
We produce 2 grades of 90A high-performance grade polyurethane for suspension: the straight polyurethane 90A high performance for suspension (red) and graphithane 90A graphite blended polyurethane (black/silver). Our truck bushes are long lasting and will not wear your housings or bind in. Bushings for most kinds of trucks and machinery are available.
Truck, Car, Trailer Suspension Components
Our team can fabricate a range of suspension parts, bushing and other components for a wide range of vehicles. We can customise our polyurethane for your specific model of car, truck or trailer - we guarantee durability as well as quality.
High Weld Self Lubricating Grader Turn Table & Slide Parts
We use graphithane LF75D (a product that has replaced steel in a wide range of areas). Replacement parts for 12, 14 and 16 grader types are offered by our team, and all of our products are low-maintenance.

Polymac power caps are non-corrosive and can suit 60amp, 125amp, 150amp and 300/425amp. Our power caps have stainless steel locking pins and are coloured according to Australian safety standards.

The sheets and billets we manufacture are available in a range of colours, sizes and duros. They can be cut to size for benchtops as well as screen doors and a range of other applications.
