TEP Technica stocks a wide range of thermoplastic polypropylene wheels and castors. You can buy polypropylene castors at very competitive prices online from our castor shop. All our polypropylene castors are manufactured in Western Europe to a very high standard. Polypropylene is a very good material to be used as the tread and/or hub centre. Castors and wheel centres made of polypropylene are fracture resistant, vibration and noise dampening, high load capacity and low cost when compared to similar materials.
Polypropylene (PP) is a thermoplastic polymer most commonly used for plastic moldings. Polypropylene (also know as polypropene) is injected into a mold while molten, forming complex shapes – making it an ideal material for high volume, low cost castor fabrication.
Polypropylene castors are resistant to various greases and oils and suitable for applications with a temperature range of -20°C to +60°C. Polypropylene wheels are typically less expensive than nylon wheels and only have marginally less superior characteristics.
