Polymer Product Spotlight: Over-Molded Foam

Overmolding is the process in which a tube, metal part, or plate is being molded over by a foam application. Like traditional Polyform®, overmolding components create a more simplified process, reducing the number of parts to inventory. Polymer Technologies makes the overmolding process easy for our customers by purchasing whichever piece is in need of molding so that the customer does not have to purchase separate foam, or a separate plastic piece, for example.


Molded arm rests used in various types of vehicles are a popular use for a molded foam application, where the foam is overmolded on the outside of the metal interior of the arm rest. Overmolding can also be used as a thermal insulation around a rubber hose, plastic housings, or other metal welds, creating a bond surrounding the structure.

Robust Recycling Initiative Significantly Boosts Sustainability & Inspires Employees

In an effort to reduce our carbon footprint, Polymer Technologies began working with Waste Masters and Blue River Resources this past July. PTI launched an aggressive recycling initiative in order to help protect the environment from the waste that results from excess insulation materials and manufacturing. "We all came together as a family to take on the challenge of changing the way we recycled at Polymer Technologies, in every way," Jarred Prybutok, Executive VP & General Manager of Polymer Technologies explained. "As a company - and a family - we are committed to reducing our carbon footprint and helping the environment."


How did Polymer do it? Today, Polymer Technologies compacts recyclable insulation materials into bales, stores the bales in a trailer provided by Waste Masters, and once every three weeks, arranges for the trailer to be transported by Waste Masters to the Blue River Resources facility (just south of Wilmington, DE).


Polymer Technologies also wanted to inspire other Delaware businesses to embrace the power of recycling to keep our environment a friendly one! Read more about our recycling program.

Polymer Technologies, Inc. Receives Silver Boeing Performance Excellence Award

Earlier this year, PTI received a 2012 Boeing Performance Excellence Award.  The Boeing Company issues the award annually to recognize suppliers who have achieved superior performance.  Polymer Technologies maintained a Silver composite performance rating for each month of the 12-month performance period, from Oct. 1, 2011, to Sept. 30, 2012.


"We are profoundly happy to have received this award from The Boeing Company," said Robert Prybutok, Polymer Technologies Founder, President & CEO.  "It is an honor to be recognized for our dedication to performance excellence.  Every day, each member of the Polymer team contributes to ensuring our customers receive the highest level of service and product performance.  Each one of us shares this award equally."


In 2000, Polymer Technologies introduced their POLYDAMP® Hydrophobic Melamine Foam (PHM) to The Boeing Company.  PHM is an extremely lightweight insulation material which exhibits exceptional resistance to heat, flame propagation, and smoke.  Perhaps the most integral feature of PHM is its resistance to water.  PHM also possesses excellent acoustical insulation properties.  Boeing issued sole source procurement of PHM.  Today Polymer Technologies PHM material is used in every Boeing aircraft produced.  Read more about our award in the news section of our website.
