PRLog - Feb. 25, 2013 - RUTHERFORDTON, N.C. -- Since its synthesis, polyurethane has replaced many different types of materials in a variety of fields. Polyurethane products come in many forms and are extremely versatile. One of the most common uses for polyurethanes in the industrial sectors is the production of drive wheels. Drive wheels are an integral part of many industrial mechanisms.

What are polyurethane drive wheels used for?

1. Conveyor Belts
Polyurethane is excellent for driving conveyor belts, as it is much less noisy than metal, and has a higher load bearing capacity than plastic. Polyurethane is also highly resistant to warping through constant use.

2. Forklifts
Forklifts' drive wheels need to be able to withstand repeated use and heavy loads, so quality is key. Due to its high load bearing capacity, as well as its chemical resistant properties, polyurethane drive wheels (http://www.sunray-inc.com/index.php?page=drive-wheels) are an ideal choice for forklift drive wheels.

3. Pulleys
Polyurethane’s ability to withstand the elements, combined with its resistance to oil, abrasion and warping under stress, make polyurethane an excellent material for producing low-maintenance pulley wheels.

4. Escalators
The driving systems in escalators are built to accommodate large groups of people, possibly carrying heavy loads. The incredible load bearing capacity of polyurethane lends itself greatly in these systems, in addition to its lack of chemical reactivity, and its resistance to wear and tear.

Due to its physical and chemical properties, it is plain to see why polyurethanes enjoy such extensive use in the industrial world. Today, modern polyurethanes have replaced many inferior materials previously used in the production of drive wheels, going above and beyond the capabilities of most plastics, rubbers or metals.
