Polyurethane overtakes old fashion Rubber

Red Shore Polyurethane Tyre

The developments in the manufacturing of Polyurethane has made the price difference between PU and rubber negligible. Previously the market accepted that rubber was an inferior tyre material, therefore it was significantly cheaper than PU. Now we are able to offer a hard wearing, injection moulded PU tyre, with Nylon centre, for the same price as the traditional crumb rubber tyre and plastic centre.  This is causing a shift in the market, towards PU.

The benefits of over Rubber

  • Polyurethane tyres is a harder wearing option
  • Higher carrying capacities
  • Used in environments with certain chemicals
  • Non-marking
  • No lumping or splitting
  • Bespoke colours available
  • Lower rolling resistance
  • Lower start up co-efficient
  • Can be used with stainless steel housings and applications

We have a full range of PU wheels, ex-stock. Alternatively there is the rubber tyre option. Revolution would encourage customers to try PU initially.

Something to 'Bearing' Mind.

 

A bearing is a machine element that keeps a Wheel spinning in the desired motion and also reduces friction between moving parts.

FUN FACT...

The first modern recorded patent on ball bearings was awarded to Philip Vaughan, an inventor + iron master who created the first design for Bering in 1794!

Do Brackets Really Matter….????

The ‘Brackets’ are Off!! The tale of the tape on ‘Castor Brackets’ from the Lightweights to the Heavyweights!

Jargon Buster - Brackets

Do Brackets Really Matter?? Here at Revolution Castors we think Brackets are a little overlooked and don’t get the respect they deserve as the focus on a castor is usually directed to the wheel type. Well we think Brackets are similar to Boxers….they need to be STRONG, DURABLE, have good SWIVEL ACTION, EXCELLENT MANOEUVRABILITY and be able to take a PUNCH or a WEIGHT in this case scenario.
