Durastan phenolic wheels are made from macerated cotton canvas and mixed with a quality premium phenolic resin compound. They are molded under high pressure under controlled conditions to produce a maximum density, superior strength product. Durastan phenolic wheels are extremely hard 90 Shore D, and roll very easily. They are not as loud as steel wheels and provide better floor protection. They are a very popular wheel and are used in a wide range of industrial applications including manufacturing, warehousing and bakeries. Durastan phenolic wheels are very economical. They are capable of withstanding heat ranges fro –50 to 250° Fahrenheit. Special high temperature Durastan phenolic wheels are available for –45 to 475° Fahrenheit applications found in industrial bakeries and other high temperature applications.
Extra heavy-duty Durastan phenolic wheels are also available. They offer a 25% higher rated capacity and added shock load capacity. All Durastan phenolic wheels are resistant to oils, grease, gasoline and most commonly used chemicals and water. Durastan phenolic wheels are not recommended for submerged or constant wet environments. Durastan phenolic wheels should not be towed at high speeds or used on poor or damaged floor surfaces.
Polyolefin wheels are an excellent low cost wheel. Polyolefin is a very durable plastic material. It has superior resistance to water and chemicals. It has better abrasion resistance than hard rubber and a remarkable ability to withstand impact. Polyolefin wheels can be used in a wide range of applications including bakeries, meat processing and packaging, dairies, food processing, laundries, supermarkets, offices, warehousing and manufacturing.
Most sizes of polyolefin wheels have a slightly crowned tread offering excellent rollability and maneuverability. Various sizes, bores and bearings are available for our polyolefin wheels. Our standard color is black, but it can be ordered in white.
Nylon wheels are solid white nylon. Nylon wheels are exceptionally durable, have high impact resistance and are excellent for wash-down applications and other applications that may require steam cleaning. The white color is preferred by industries requiring a clean environment as dirt and grime show up easily if missed in cleaning. Nylon wheel applications may include pharmaceutical manufacturing, food processing, restaurant equipment, slaughterhouses, meat packing, institutional and medical environments.
Nylon wheels are available with roller bearings, delrin bearings and sealed precision ball bearings.
