Era Polymers - The Company

Founded in April 1986, out of a home office in Sydney, Australia, by George and Tina Papamanuel - specializing in the field of polyurethane elastomer chemistry

The original company was started in April 1986, out of 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.

Era Polymers USA is the latest addition to the network, with the purpose built prepolymer facility in Stanley, NC, allowing the company to serve the North and Latin American business markets.
