During the late 1980’s there were major developments within polymer composites and the incorporation of highly engineered ceramics compounds with a high level of abrasion resistance which were becoming more readily available and user friendly.

Founded in 1992 by Robin Pettigrew, Unique Polymer Systems has become an established family run company with over 27 years of experience in supplying specialist engineering repair composites and high-performance protective coatings.

The start of the 2000’s industries started to demand more unique solutions to their problems. Rather than having to opt for the extortionate cost of buying new OEM with the likelihood of the same problems re-occurring again in the future. This new drive meant UPS started working even closer with worldwide customer to provide solutions to ever occurring problems faced by the engineers.

Repair Don’t Replace” became the main objective for companies, that wanted to save on their production costs becoming more competitive in their respective markets, especially with the economic downturn when business confidence in investment was at an all-time low.

At Unique Polymer Systems, we embraced these new, innovate, engineering products to not only protect, but also upgrading the original equipment to perform better and have longer service life.

Specialising in the emergency repair on leaking pipes, vessels, supplying corrosion resistance coating for all types of substrates and in most applications, such as tanks floors, roofs, infrastructure or providing composite elastomer repairs to conveyer belts.

In 2018 Unique Polymer Systems updated their logo & website to stay in touch with the high speed of technology. The primary focus remains ‘Repair Don’t Repair’, which we have entail, ‘Innovate | Rebuild | Enhance’.

Continually researching new products and solutions to help reduce the maintenance budget, enabling equipment and structures to stay in service longer between overhauls. We are committed to give all our customers a positive user experience, priding ourselves on listening to our customers comments and suggestions. Training our Distributors in application techniques remains a priority element with Unique Polymer Systems.
