Experts in metal to PU bonded products, Bonaprene has over 25 years’ experience in this field. Our moulding products are popular with the automotive industry given their strong torsion and compression loads.
Manufacturing body mounts, engine mounts, pan-hard bushes and roll bar bushes, our experience and technology enables us to produce bonds of strengths that even exceed those of Bonathane polyurethane.
We also specialise in making many parts for vehicle suspension bushes requiring polyurethane to metal bonding.
Bonaprene Products have been manufacturing polyurethane, PU, to metal bonded mouldings for over twenty years. In this time Bonaprene have mastered the technology and necessary high standards to produce bonds of strengths that even exceed the strength of the Bonathane polyurethane. The photo of the red engine mount being stretched to over 200% of its original length indicates the power of the bond Bonaprene can achieve.
Bonaprene makes many parts for vehicle suspension bushes that require polyurethane to metal bonding where the bonds are subjected to very high torsion and compression loads. Applications include wishbone bushes, radius arm bushes, Panhard bushes, strut mounts, leaf spring bushes, shackle bushes, body mounts, subframe mounts and many more.
Similar applications to vehicle suspension bushes are the bushes Bonaprene make for reciprocating conveyors. These are conveyors with mounting arms that control the forward thrust & re-bound strokes. the repetitive oscillating actions cause rubber bushes in the arms to overwork and melt.
Bonaprene’s polyurethane bushes much higher compression modulus & torsional strength gives a much longer lasting bush. This, in turn, means operators can keep their conveyors running longer between service times.
