Cast Polyurethane Wheels and Sprockets Manufacturer

Polyurethane wheels and sprockets offer superior impact and abrasion resistance compared with rubber and ensure superior noise reduction and dampening.

hey don’t corrode the way many metal wheels will, deliver better cold weather performance than many plastic wheels, and tend to be more flexible and cost-effective than other solutions.

When you combine polyurethane’s versatility with Novathane’s strong problem-solving capabilities, you get a solution that outperforms other efforts. Novathane prides itself on bringing a variety of different perspectives to a customer’s problem, which include its strong experience, technical competency, and “real world” savvy. Customers value our commonsense approach, which is why so many come back to us time after time.

Trust Novathane to solve your most immediate issues as well as the problems that plague your legacy equipment. We’ve helped customers repair and refurbish 40-year-old equipment by reverse engineering damaged parts and replacing them with new polyurethane solutions that work better than the original components.

Typical Applications

Wheels and/or sprockets are used in virtually every industry worldwide. From assembly line conveyors to supermarket shopping cart wheels to food processing drive sprockets to farm equipment and amusement park rides, these polyurethane products are either currently available or probably will be in the future due to their flexibility and cost-effectiveness. Polyurethane’s ability to achieve tight tolerances makes it superior to rubber and many other solutions when it comes to meeting customer specifications for a uniform fit. Novathane’s expertise in formulating polyurethane to meet exacting customer needs ensures that the solution you receive is optimized for the job.

Polyurethane’s Advantages

Polyurethane wheels provide high durability and are impervious to oil, grease, and many chemicals including solvents. They won’t mark floors the way rubber can and are resistant to abrasion. They provide superior load-bearing capacity and you can specify the hardness levels required. Sprockets made of polyurethane are quieter than metal ones, reducing ambient sound levels in processing systems and conveyor belts. They also tend to be significantly less expensive than metal sprockets.
