Pleiger Plastics offers a vast array of high performance polyurethane compounds tailored for transport polyurethane roller and wheel applications. Our molded rollers and load wheels handle high speed and the harshest service environments with great success. The Pleiger team can recommend the best urethane compound for your roller or wheel application.
Plei-Tech 15® (Vulkollan®) and Plei-Tech® 95 provide the industry's highest load capacities. Plei-Tech® 15 (Vulkollan®) is the industry’s premier polyurethane compound for roller and wheel applications. Its excellent hysteresis properties provide outstanding performance and longer wear-life than other elastomers in the most demanding applications. Plei-Tech® 15 is commonly used for narrow aisle fork lift wheels and tires, guide rollers, casters, nip rollers, automated guided vehicles (AGVs), corrugated rollers, load wheels, and much more.
Pleiger’s Soft Touch® transport rollers are recommended for applications where it is important not to mar or damage a surface while still retaining excellent abrasion resistance.
Plei-Tech® polyurethane compounds have excellent bonding characteristics with steel, aluminum, stainless, and plastic composites. Pleiger takes advantage of this characteristic by offering customers the service of stripping and recoating urethane wheels and rollers. This process offers a great savings advantage to the customer because they are not buying a new steel hub or core. With our expertise in stripping the worn material (urethane, rubber, or any other plastic) and prepping the core to be recoated with Plei-Tech® polyurethane, the roller or wheel can be brought back to life. Why throw away valuable steel hubs that are in good condition when savings can be passed onto the customer by reusing them.
