Heavy Duty Polyurethane Wheels
To view technical information and datasheets on our range of polyurethane wheels please click here
Polyurethane (PU) wheels are a synthetic rubber providing the elasticity of rubber wheels with the strength and durability of metal wheels. PU wheels are made by combining chemicals which are then poured into a mould and cast. Polyurethane wheels can be manufactured to range of hardness dependent on the intended application. Ranging from soft to very hard, polyurethane wheel fabrication is controlled by the compound ingredients and through the production process.
Key considerations for selecting the right Polyurethane wheel
The fabrication process will determine the characteristics of the polyurethane wheel depending on the application. Different environments or applications will require a different type of PU wheel. Considerations include:
PU wheels are generally non-marking and function efficiently on hard surfaces like concrete, ceramic tiles and even hardwood. For softer floors e.g vinyl, soft wood flooring call us for a recommendation on: 01256 763744.
Ensure you select the appropriate wheel for your application. PU wheels are fabricated to withstand various temperatures – high speed applications can cause some PU wheels to overheat and ‘blowout’. If you are ensure which polyurethane wheel you require get in touch with our technical team on: 01256 763744.
Continuous or Occasional Operation
Softer polyurethane wheels, if not operational for long periods of time may develop flat spots under load. Ensure you select the PU wheel suited to your operation – for heavy equipment trollies that are stationary for large amount of time select a hard PU wheel. Our technical advisors are on hand to help you decide which wheel is best suited to your requirements.

Soft polyurethane keyway wheel with heavy-duty steel centre. Manufactured in Germany, this wheel has a high-grade soft polyurethane (78 Shore A) tread directly bonded to a steel centre complete with a keyway according to DIN 6885. The polyurethane tread has been specially developed to offer high dynamic load capacity while significantly reducing starting and rolling resistance. The tread is non-marking and wear and tear resistance with good sound and vibration dampening.
This replacement polyurethane tyre guarantees an excellent fit every time. Arguably the best replacement tyre on the market, it comes with a high-grade polyurethane tread directly bonded to a solid steel band. Produced in Germany using the latest bonding technology and quality raw materials, it is an ideal solution for medium to heavy duty applications. Precision engineering to ensure an excellent fit to existing wheel centres.
At our UK warehouse we hold a large stocks of polyurethane wheels that can be dispatched on a next day delivery service. We offer a wide array of wheels to suit a variety of industrial and commercial applications.
