Why do more and more people use TPR casters?

Now more and more users in the market are more and more fond of TPR casters. We see more and more TPR casters in factories, hotels and life. It also gradually appears in everyone’s vision and has become a good partner and helper in our life. Let me give you a brief introduction of why TPR can become a new caster in the fierce market.

Introduction to TPR casters:

1. Thermoplastic elastomer TPR compound has become an important raw material in castor and wheel industry because of its convenient processing and molding (it can be directly molded by injection molding machine), excellent wear resistance, elasticity, shock absorption and low noise.

2. Common casters, such as shelf wheels and cart wheels, are made of hard plastic (such as PP, PA) and soft plastic (such as TPR, TPE, PU, EVA, TPU). As the framework material of casters, hard plastic plays the role of load-bearing, while soft rubber plays the role of anti-skid, shock absorption and noise reduction.

3. At present, TPR caster manufacturers generally mainly use hard plastic copolymer PP, some use PA nylon, and soft plastic uses TPE. TPR accounts for a large proportion of market demand This kind of castor is usually processed by two – step injection molding That is, the first step is to inject hard plastic parts PP or PA; The second step is to put the formed hard plastic part into another set of mold, fix the position, and then shoot and stick the soft plastic TPR to the position where the hard plastic part needs to be covered.

TPR caster benefits:

1. Hardness 55a-95a;

2. Quiet operation without noise interference;

3. And PP have excellent adhesion;

4. Good shock absorption, anti-skid and wear resistance;

5. High bearing capacity, high wear resistance and high resilience;

6. Good UV resistance and chemical resistance;

7. Leave no trace on the floor, unlike the rubber wheel, there will be sulfur and carbon black precipitation;

8. Excellent wear resistance and pullout elasticity, UV resistance and ozone resistance;

9. Weather resistance and no erosion, which can be applied to all kinds of harsh and extreme environments at home and abroad;

10. Wide temperature resistance range, allowing long-term use of the temperature range between – 50 ~ 115 ℃;

Its advantages are not only mentioned above, but also used in hotels, factories and workshops. The application scope of TPR casters is not limited to these fields; Of course, we need to explore and discover its good performance and advantages that have not been mentioned.
