Let’s make your CAST URETHANE parts. Right now.

Reduced cast urethane costs by 60%

Made possible with Fast radius

Every day we’re working with the world’s leading product manufacturers to make the parts that matter most to their businesses.

Common Cast Urethane Applications

Cast urethane is often used in low to medium volume part production. It can also be a smart option for prototyping components, as a new tool can be cured quickly for each design iteration.

Joints

Ideal for producing mechanical joints with overlapping features.

Logos

3D logos with raised or recessed lettering.

Prototyping

Low up-front cost and quick turnaround times.

Low volume production runs

Producing plastic components needed in small quantities.
