What Does It Mean to Be MSHA Approved?
This high-performance flexible polyurethane foam is MSHA-approved and has excellent abrasion and cut resistance. Plei-Tech® 15 also performs well in oil and solvent environments. The Mining Safety and Health Administration's (MSHA) Approval and Certification Center (A&CC) approves and certifies certain mining products for use in underground coal and gassy underground metal and nonmetal mines. Technical experts evaluate and test equipment, instruments, and materials for compliance with Federal regulations. Meeting these exacting standards shows our flexible polyurethane foam part's ability to stand up to difficult situations.
When your application is not demanding enough for Plei-Tech 15 foam, our PT-10, 22, 92, and 93 systems can be processed into foam products.
Polyurethane Foam Parts made from Pleiger Plastics' foam systems typically weigh between 40 and 4,000 grams; however, parts as large as 40kg have been made. Mold pressures as high as 200 psi require more expensive molds, resulting in lower cycle times.
