Polyurethane Motor Mounts

Mounts are the devices that anchor an object in its operating position. Not only do mounts control the transfer of noise and vibration, but they also work well in reducing flexing in critical components so wear and tear can be prevented. Polyurethane mounts are the best possible mounts to replace rubber factory mounts. With brilliant resistance to abrasion, these mounts can function well even under extreme automotive temperatures.

How are Polyurethane Mounts Manufactured?

The manufacturing of Polyurethane mounts often takes place by following these 4 main steps:

Step 1: Custom molds are used to give shape to the mount according to customer design requirements. Molding with thermoset polyurethanes allows for short runs or large quantities.

Step 2: The polyurethane is then machined and dispensed in liquid form into the molds in a conveyor oven heated to 250°F.  

Step 3: The liquid urethane is then cured into a solid while in high-temperature ovens.

Step 4: Once the polyurethane is cured completely, it is taken out of the mold and moved to post-cure ovens

Polyurethane Motor Mounts For AutomotiveFeatures of Polyurethane Mounts

Polyurethane mounts have a lot of qualities that make them better as compared to rubber mounts.

Here’s why Polyurethane mounts are preferred:

•    The unique chemical composition allows it to be used in hot and cold working environments.

•    They show excellent resistance to oil, coolants, grease, and most chemicals.

•    Polyurethane mounts do not crack and last 3 to 4 times longer than rubber mounts.

•    They offer easy customization and provide longer service life than rubber.

•    Furthermore, these mounts are durable and are not easily deformed.

Polyurethane Mounts by MPC

Polyurethane mounts are one of the premium products of MPC. Prepared from top-quality raw material, polyurethane mounts are used by MPC in the form of the following products:

1.    Polyurethane Transfer Mounts: are employed to protect expensive drive trains by reducing their dangerous vibrations and bending. Resistant to oil, grease, and abrasion, these mounts last longer than rubber OEM mounts.

2.    Polyurethane Exhaust Hangers: These devices are used as a better alternative to stock exhaust hangers made of rubber or steel because they provide great resistance to vibrations and road debris and can withstand extreme temperatures.

3.    Motor Mounts: These mounts are used to provide a suitable stabilizer for motor engines and prevent natural vibrations resulting from the internal combustion process.

4.    Transmission Mounts: isolate vibrations and are necessary to support the engine.

5.    Body Mounts: connect the frame of the vehicle to the body and absorb the driving noise and vibrations.

6.    Frame Mounts: provide excellent resistance to abrasion and are a reliable choice to provide breathing space to art.

7.    Marine Motor Mounts: MPC uses these mounts specifically for marine vehicle engines to protect them from salt water with a high resistance to degradation.

8.    Automotive Motor Mounts: Similar to motor mounts, these are specifically employed for automotive engine stabilization.

9.    Poly Motor Mounts: These are used similarly to the motor mounts but are a better choice as compared to the rubber mounts.

10.    Universal Motor Mounts: As their name explains, universal motor mounts offer all the combined qualities required from a standard mount.

11.    Custom Motor Mounts: Custom motor mounts are also used to produce a flexible and compression-resistant mount that can be adjusted by hardness according to the requirements.

In summary, polyurethane mounts surpass traditional rubber mounts in durability, resistance, and longevity. MPC offers a diverse range of Polyurethane mounts tailored for various automotive components, providing superior performance in reducing noise, vibration, and flexing. With exceptional resistance to abrasion, oil, grease, and extreme temperatures, Polyurethane mounts ensure stability and reliability in automotive systems, making them a preferred choice for both standard and custom applications.
