History

Founded in March 1974, polyurethane specialist Urethane Moulded Products (UMP) supplies a diverse range of cost-effective wear solutions to the mining, infrastructure and engineering sectors. We later expanded into steel fabrication and machining. In 2013, we developed our own proprietary methods for large-diameter steel bends up to 900 NB.

Highly corrosion- and abrasion-resistant, UMP’s polyurethane formulations are engineered to outlast conventional polyurethanes, polyethylenes, rubber and steel in order to reduce maintenance, downtime and replacement costs and deliver superior life-cycle performance.

 

 

 

 

UMP has 47 years’ experience in polyurethane, mouldings and linings. We were the first company in South Africa to line pipes, having developed the polyurethane pipe lining technology in 1980.

Our services range from contract manufacturing for Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) through to proprietary designed and developed products for the mining, infrastructure and engineering sectors.

UMP’s business is divided into five dedicated areas of excellence:

  • Custom Polyurethane (PU) Mouldings and Linings
  • Pipes and Pipe Lining
  • Manufacturing and Fabrication
  • Engineering, Research and Development
  • Project Partnerships
