How Buschman’s In-house Manufacturing Process Ensures Precision and Produces Superior UHMW PE Rod Holders

  • Customized: Buschman controls all steps of the UHMW polyethylene rod holder production process in-house. We custom-engineer all parts using state-of-the-art CAD software.
  • Consistent: Highly specialized equipment, designed and built in-house, allows us to accurately control critical dimensions within 0.13mm (0.005in), ensuring that every rod holder you receive will be consistent with previous shipments.
  • Accurate: Precise process and quality control procedures ensure that each UHMW rod holder we produce is manufactured to your exact specifications.

Benefits of Polyethylene Rod Holders v. Rubber / Polyurethane

  • More Rigid: More rigid rod holder lips help keep rod surfaces cleaner during operation, especially smooth rods.
  • More Durable: Due to its higher durometer and lower coefficient of friction, UHMW polyethylene holders tend to last longer.
  • Better for specialty shapes: Since polyethylene is machined from a solid rectangular block, there are no upfront tooling or mold costs associated with small runs.
  • Weather & chemical resistant: Impervious to ozone, sunlight, oxygen, and weather conditions; resists breakdowns from exposure to oil, grease, gasoline, and solvents.
  • Longer life: Abrasion, tear resistance, and superior load-bearing capabilities lead to longer life.

“The quality of Buschman’s products is excellent. In the ten years we’ve been purchasing coating rods from them, we’ve had maybe two or three issues and they are minor issues. For the number of coating rods we purchase, that’s incredible. Their quality has been so high and they work so well with us that we don’t even consider looking at other vendors for our coating rod needs.”
