Caster Wheels - Quick Summary

Our Caster Wheel selection covers all of the bases. With both hard and soft materials, we have just the right wheel for your application. Our Caster Wheels are not only for our casters but may be used as replacements in your current equipment. Many of our customers buy our caster wheels for special projects and they are never even installed in casters. For tips on choosing the right caster wheel, go to our Tips Page. See our Products Page for our entire line of Casters and Caster Wheels. Below is our summary for Caster Wheels.

Caster Wheels - Premium Rubber PREMIUM Rubber Caster Wheels

PREMIUM rubber caster wheels have a special compound of highly resilient soft rubber bonded to thick aluminum wheel centers. Unlike Conventional Moldon rubber caster wheels, PREMIUM rubber caster wheels can be moved manually when loaded to their rated capacities.

SUPER CUSHION Rubber Caster Wheels

SUPER CUSHION rubber caster wheels have a noise absorbing and shock isolating extra resilient soft rubber tread bonded to thick aluminum wheel centers. They are ideally suited for moving fragile or delicate cargo. They are more resilient than pneumatics with none of the maintenance problems associated with air filled wheels.

Extra Soft Rubber Caster Wheels

The extra soft rubber on these caster wheels helps to absorb vibration and shock, thus protecting the load or cargo while in transit. Another benefit of these extra soft rubber caster wheels is noise reduction. These caster wheels are designed for use in Hospitals, Electronic and Scientific Laboratories, Hotels, Department Stores, TV and Movie Studios - wherever vibration and noise should be eliminated.

Caster Wheels - Moldon Rubber Conventional Moldon Rubber Caster Wheels

These Conventional Moldon rubber caster wheels have soft rubber tires molded onto iron centers. Soft rubber provides more desirable operating characteristics than any other wheel material. It is quiet, absorbs shock (prolonging equipment life and protecting cargo), can roll over small objects, protects costly floor surfaces, and minimizes vibration.

Caster Wheels: Gray Rubber Gray Rubber Caster Wheels

These caster wheels have gray non-marking injection molded rubber mechanically and chemically bonded to a polyolefin center. These caster wheels provide a softer ride than polyurethane and yet withstand exposure to many chemicals and solvents. They can be used in industrial applications which do not involve shock, overloading, abuse, obstructions, poor floors or storage (standing) loads.

Caster Wheels: Solid Polyurethane All Polyurethane (Solid Poly) Caster Wheels

These solid all polyurethane caster wheels are non marking and non conductive. The absence of a metal center eliminates bond failure as a cause for wheel replacement. These caster wheels are especially suited for use with stainless steel casters in wet and corrosive applications. Standard color is Blue.
Caster Wheels: Polyurethane with Iron Centers Polyurethane Caster Wheels with Iron Centers (PY)

Polyurethane is superior to rubber in resistance to grease, oil, cutting, chunking, and abrasive wear. These caster wheels can be used on almost any dry factory floor. As with moldon rubber, the bonding agent which holds the polyurethane tire to its iron center can be affected by exposure to some chemicals, impact, overloading, and the buildup of heat.

Polyurethane on Glass-filled Nylon Caster Wheels (UG)

These caster wheels have a liquid cast non-marking polyurethane tire chemically bonded to a Glass-filled Nylon core. Liquid cast polyurethane has a greater load capacity and tends to be more durable than injection molded polyurethane. The Glass-filled Nylon core prevents corrosion.
Polyurethane Caster Wheel with Polyolefin Center  Polyurethane Caster Wheels with Polyolefin Centers

These caster wheels are non marking injection molded polyurethane tires mechanically and chemically bonded to a polyolefin center. They withstand exposure to many chemicals and solvents. They can be used in industrial applications which do not involve shock, overloading, abuse, obstructions, poor floors or storage ( standing ) loads.

Caster Wheels: Phenolic Phenolic Caster Wheels

Phenolic caster wheels are made from heavy weave canvas duck, impregnated with phenolic resin, and molded under high pressure and temperature. Its hardness is comparable to polished maple flooring. Phenolic caster wheels are recommended for smooth concrete or wood floors, and can be used for storage (standing) loads without permanent set.

Polyolefin Caster Wheels Polyolefin Caster Wheels

These polyolefin caster wheels are especially suited for use in wet and corrosive applications. They are injection molded from a blend of thermoplastic polymers, forming a one piece solid sanitary design. Temperature range 30° to +180° F. In a cold dry environment, such as in a refrigerated storeroom, polyolefin may become brittle. Caster wheels are standard with a plain bore, Delrin bearing, or a Roller bearing. Polyolefin is very resistant to many commonly encountered liquids.

Polyolefin Caster Wheels High Temperature Caster Wheels

A new high temperature special material designed specifically for autoclaves, sterilizers, bakery ovens, and other high temperature applications. These solid black caster wheels come only with a hard surface tread designed for high capacity and easy rolling on smooth floors. Temperature rating: 450° F continuous.

Gray Iron Caster Wheels Gray Iron (Semi-Steel) Caster Wheels

These iron caster wheels provide high capacity and are less expensive than forged steel caster wheels. They are practical for use on wood block or hardened smooth concrete. On untreated concrete they tend to cause rapid floor deterioration. Although the treads are machined smooth to minimize floor wear, iron caster wheels are not recommended where floor or cargo protection is needed.

Caster Wheels - Ductile Steel Ductile Steel & Forged Steel Caster Wheels

Where loads are too heavy for floor protective wheels, or where unusually severe service factors are present, forged steel & Ductile steel caster wheels will do the job. Usually in these applications the user will not consider floor wear as too great a penalty considering the work that is being done. Forged steel caster wheels will damage most factory floors, and thus are generally used on steel plate, in channel, or as V-groove wheels rolling on angle iron track.

V-Groove Caster Wheels V-Groove Caster Wheels

V-groove caster wheels are designed to guide equipment by rolling on inverted angle iron track. Elevated track minimizes problems caused by floor debris. The relief groove at the base of the "V" equalizes the load on each face of the angle. Forged Steel V-groove caster wheels minimize wear of the V-groove sides and are best for frequent operation.

All Stainless Steel Caster Wheels (SS)

Solid Stainless Steel with Stainless Steel Roller Bearings. Capacity up to 1500 lbs. per wheel. Available in 4" x 2" and 6" x 2" Sizes.
