Era Polymers


The original company was started in April 1986, in a home office in Sydney, Australia, by George and Tina Papamanuel. It began by specializing in the field of polyurethane elastomer chemistry, to help its customers serve important markets in the mining and industrial sectors, where the abrasion resistance and versatility of polyurethane elastomers was desired.

Since those humble beginnings it has grown to become the largest Polyurethane Systems House in Australia, and from there, it began to export its products around the world.
