Marine & Transportation

The demanding nature of the marine and transportation industry has enabled the team at Midas to tackle a range of exciting projects. We’ve used our extensive experience in RIM moulding to produce quality parts for a range of uses including diesel tanks, foundries and transportation pods for offshore crews.

Using tried and tested techniques, we’ve successfully designed and developed a range of polyurethane mouldings for use in harsh environments. Our understanding of the marine and transportation industry’s stringent rules and regulations has allowed us to create products that are flame retardant, structurally secure and stable.
