Hamilton Caster (Hamilton, OH) announced the release of a new polyurethane tread wheel series: DuraGlide. Designed for extra heavy loads, the new wheel features 1-inch thick tread of dynamically responsive polyurethane molded to a heavy duty cast iron core.
The thicker 1-inch tread reduces heat stress on the bond line and lowers the internal stresses of the material. Engineers also formulated the polyurethane to be less susceptible to damaging ultraviolet rays and essentially impervious to moisture. The new poly formulation in a thick tread profile provides less stress fatigue and results in a wheel that outlasts and outperforms other similar polyurethane wheels.
DuraGlide wheels are well suited for applications in the heavy manufacturing, automotive, aerospace, military, ground support, and food manufacturing industries.The new wheel is offered in various sizes including 6, 8, 10, and 12 inch diameters with load capacities ranging from 1600 – 8000 lbs. per wheel.
