We are a proudly owned and operated New Zealand company manufacturing a broad range of polyurethanes, epoxy resins and adhesives. Established in 1988, we are an ISO 9001:2000 accredited organisation, committed to excellence in both product development and customer support.
At Uroxsys, we have developed high performance coating systems which address the whole coating process from floor preparation and primers right through to the top coats. Products featured in our coating systems are designed to be used in conjunction with each other, sometimes with alternate product choices available, depending on the type of floor substrate to be coated. Apart from product compatibility, our coating systems are designed to minimise installation or handling errors. Each Uroxsys product has its own Technical Data Sheet with detailed application instructions, as well as Material Safety Data Sheet, all of which are accessible from our technical information page.
We are also very mindful of our impact on the environment and are always looking for ways to make our products more eco-friendly. Our solvent-based systems which are formulated for low free isocyanate levels and are xylene free, have therefore comparatively low installation odour. More recently, we have also developed a high performance water-based two pack polyurethane system whose performance is comparable to our solvent-based systems.
Although Uroxsys has its base in manufacturing high performance coatings for wood and cork substrates, we have been dealing with requests for coatings for a variety of other substrates such as concrete and terrazzo. We also work closely with contractors from other industries to formulate new products especially to meet our customers needs. In addition to manufacturing coatings, we have developed advanced adhesives which are optimised for superior performance and productivity. Our adhesives are used not only in the flooring and furnishing industries, but have also found a niche in the civil engineering and construction industries as well.
Uroxsys has always had a strong research and development focus and is affiliated with various industry associations. Our staff members are at the cutting edge of their field, and are constantly researching new coating methods and products.
Our staff members also play an active role in developing professional expertise in the industry by lecturing in our speciality areas in the Postgraduate (MSc) course in Polymers and Coatings at the University of Auckland.
With an eye to fostering international technological links and further research and development in this field, we also sponsor internships with post-graduate students carrying out their research projects from both the University of Auckland, as well as Fachhochschule Kaiserslautern, Standort Pirmasens in Germany.
