When manufacturing machines break down, they don’t produce products on-time which can negatively impact your bottom line. One of the main reasons for a machine to break down is wear-and-tear due to abrasion, friction and impact. Applying rubber or urethane to your machines and its parts helps them last longer, reducing downtime and saving you money.
A good pair of clamp pads helps warehouse operations go off without a hitch. These rubber-coated forklift attachments (made of steel or aluminum and coated with a rib-designed rubber) allow workers to easily handle rolls, barrels, boxes and much more. When clamp pads wear out, work is halted waiting for a new pair to arrive. But, it doesn’t have to be that way.
Since Endurawear Rubber and Endurawear Urethane offer the best protection against abrasion, corrosion and impact, it’s no surprise that they help a variety of industries. In fact, anytime there is a machine or part that needs to last longer and work with fewer repairs, applying rubber or urethane is often the answer.
It may be summer, but learning about the awesome properties and abilities of urethane should never take a break. Polyurethanes mimic the traits of both plastic and rubber to create a product that offers both superior abrasion control and impact resistance. Polyurethane is a mixture of two (or more) liquid chemicals, a prepolymer and a curative, that when combined at the proper ratio and temperatures produce a chemical reaction resulting in a solid finished product.
How often have you had to replace your metal conveyance equipment? Unprotected steel takes a beating from the bushels of corn, soybeans and other grains that tumble down it to silos or trucks. When a spout goes down, all processes are halted and the lost dollar signs start spinning in your head. Instead of sitting on your hands waiting for a spout to be repaired or replaced, avoid the situation entirely by investing in a wear- and abrasion solution like Tuff-Tube[Symbol].
Abrasion, heavy impact and corrosion are three problems that damage your expensive machinery. Daily wear and tear leads to breakdowns, and until you’re back up and running, you’re losing money. We understand this better than anyone which is why we’ve developed an entire menu of rubber and urethane products that help your expensive equipment last and keep production moving.
Polyurethane is truly a wonder material! According to the American Chemistry Council, it is used to give clothing extra stretch, for thermal insulation in refrigerators and freezers, in nearly every part of today’s automobiles, in flooring and home furnishings, not to mention in building materials and manufacturing.
