Amera-Thane is our own outstanding formulation of thermo-set polyester polyurethane. It is uniquely molded to produce a superior impact resistant plate with the smoothest surface possible and a low coefficient of friction. Amera-Thane is certified as complying with FDA Article 121.2522, and can be used as the contact surface for grain and other dry bulk foods.

Amera-Thane is poured to order, and is also available with 16GA expanded steel backing for rigidity and installation.
