Rogers, Connecticut -- A multi-year joint development project is paying off for Rogers Corp. and PolyWorks Corp.
The two companies said they signed an agreement under which Rogers is licensing North Smithfield, Rhode Island-based PolyWorks' technology for moulding Rogers' high-performance foam brand, Poron microcellular polyurethanes, into three-dimensional shapes.
The deal, finalised 2 Nov, follow a period during which the two firms adopted PolyWorks' moulding technology to Rogers' urethanes. It will enable Rogers to expand its Poron offerings beyond its continuous sheet foam, said the company.
Rogers is also buying a custom moulding machine from PolyWorks and a license to use the technology. It will install a new line at the company's Suzhou, China, plant to produce the company's new offerings.
