Polyurethane Wheel

Product Description

Most entrepreneurs’ polyurethane wheel is one of their top choices for caster and industrial applications because it benefits their business and customers. It also acts as a shock absorber while passing through potholes, significantly reducing the operation’s noise level to protect the employee or customer’s hearing. Polyutherane has a good grip on the flooring, and it has excellent traction to produce less friction and makes carts easy to maneuver even though it has heavy loads.

Manufacturing Process

A caster is a device that helps movable objects, like furniture or industrial machines, to be rolled smoothly along the ground. The manufacturing process of a polyurethane wheel for caster application is divided into two main steps: preparing the polyurethane mixture and casting the wheel.

  • The first step in manufacturing a polyurethane wheel for caster applications is to mix the necessary ingredients. This mixture starts with liquid polyurethane mixed with various other chemicals to create a soft, dough-like consistency. Once everything is mixed together, this material is then poured into a mold that will shape the final product.
  • The second step in manufacturing a polyurethane wheel for caster applications is to let the mixture harden and set. This step involves letting the mixture set for a period of time, which causes the polyurethane to harden and become firm. Once this has occurred, the wheel can be removed from its mold and used in the caster application.

Benefits for Caster Applications

Polyurethane caster wheels are becoming more popular in the market because they offer several benefits over traditional rubber caster wheels. Polyurethane is a synthetic polymer known for its durability and resistance to abrasion, making it perfect for applications where the wheel wears out is common. Polyurethane caster wheels are also non-marking, meaning they won’t leave black marks on your floors as rubber caster wheels can. Additionally, polyurethane caster wheels offer better traction than rubber, making them ideal for industrial and commercial settings where slick floors are common.

Advantage and Disadvantage

There are many advantages and disadvantages of using polyurethane wheels in the business. One advantage is that they are very durable. Polyurethane wheels can last up to 10x times longer than a traditional rubber wheel. They also have a low noise level, making them perfect for businesses that need to keep a low profile. Polyurethane wheels offer better traction than rubber, making them ideal for industrial and commercial settings where slick floors are standard. However, polyurethane wheels also have several disadvantages. One disadvantage is that they are more expensive than rubber wheels. Another disadvantage is that they are more difficult to maintain. When a wheel wears out, it must be replaced with a new one. The replacement process requires refinishing the wheel and applying a new coating to the whole wheel.

Difference between Metal Wheels and Polyurethane Wheels​

There are many types of materials that can make a wheel for a skateboard. The two most popular types of wheels are metal and polyurethane. Each type of wheel has its benefits and drawbacks. Metal wheels are heavier than polyurethane wheels, but they offer more durability and a smoother ride. Metal wheels also last longer than polyurethane wheels and are less likely to get damaged if they hit a curb or other obstacle. However, metal wheels can be more expensive than polyurethane wheels, and they require more maintenance, such as regular lubrication. Polyurethane wheels are lighter than metal wheels, making them easier to control and spin. Polyurethane wheels also absorb shock better than metal wheels, making them ideal for beginners.

Features of Polyurethane Wheel

  1. Noice and Vibration reduction – seamlessly work in a quiet environment compared to iron or metal wheels.
  2. It gives maximum protection to the floor – and prevents damage, especially if a building has expensive tiles or floorings.
  3. Strong corrosion resistance – like strong chemicals, grease, or gasoline.
  4. Durable – can withstand any terrain and act as shock absorption.
  5. It can operate in any extreme weather condition with minimal drawbacks.
  6. Ideal for commercial, industrial, engineering, and residential usage
