Wheel materials for special requirements

VULKOLLAN® 95° Shore A

VULKOLLAN®1 95° Shore A is a highly elastic polyurethane elastomer based on Desmodur® 15 for demanding and dynamic areas of application. The excellent mechanical properties of the material include very high dynamic load capacity, very high abrasion resistance and wear propagation resistance, very high mechanical wear resistance and very low compression set. We recommend VULKOLLAN® 95° Shore A for use in the transport of very heavy loads and at high speeds.

Long service life

  • Very high load capacities
  • Very high speeds
  • Minimal flat spots

VULKOSOFT®

VULKOLLAN® is a highly elastic polyurethane elastomer based on Desmodur® 15. Like all VULKOLLAN® varieties, the material has excellent mechanical properties including good dynamic load capacity, good abrasion resistance and wear propagation resistance, high impact resilience and low compression set. With a Shore hardness of 85° Shore A, VULKOSOFT® combines high load capacity with good noise reduction and vibration damping and is therefore particularly suitable for use on surfaces where care is needed, for example on tile floors.

  • Medium load capacities
  • Medium speeds
  • Good noise reduction and vibration damping
  • Floor saving

VULKOLLAN® -ELF

VULKOLLAN®-ELF is our developed and patented special material for discharging electrostatic charges based on Desmodur® 15. Through the addition of electrically conductive components, the discharge is carried out through the entire tread and over the entire contact area, regardless of the wear of the tread. VULKOLLAN®-ELF comfortably exceeds the requirements set by the DIN EN 12527 ff standard for electrical volume resistance and is particular suitable for use in operations where there is risk of fire or explosion, in areas with highly densified, charged air or with extremely concentrated dust particles.

Bullet points:

  • Prevents electrostatic charges
  • Medium load capacities

TRACTOTHAN®

TRACTOTHAN® is a VULKOLLAN® composite material developed by us with the same properties as VULKOLLAN®. Special TPU granules incorporated into the tread ensure increased wheel grip, thus improving starting properties, preventing slip and improving braking effects. TRACTOTHAN® is therefore particularly suitable for in-plant transportation and use on wet and soiled surfaces.

  • Increased braking effect
  • Reduced risk of sliding
  • High load capacities
  • High speeds

TRACTOSOFT®

TRACTOSOFT® is a TRACTOSOFT® composite material developed by us with the same properties as TRACTOSOFT®. Special TPU granules incorporated into the tread ensure increased wheel grip, thus improving starting properties, preventing slip and improving braking effects. Thanks to the lower Shore hardness of 85° Shore A, TRACTOSOFT® is particularly suited for use in transportation on wet and soiled surfaces where noise reduction and protection of the products being transported are also important factors.

  • Reduced risk of sliding
  • Medium load capacities
  • Medium speeds
  • Floor saving

VULKOLLAN®-Quarz

VULKOLLAN®-Quartz is a VULKOLLAN® composite material which we have developed for use on extremely wet, slippery and greasy surfaces. With the addition of quartz sand, the material has significantly better traction, while the excellent properties of VULKOLLAN® are preserved as much as possible. VULKOLLAN®-Quartz is therefore particularly suited to the most extreme types of usage in the fish and meat industries or in creameries, although it does have an abrasive effect due to its structure, which can damage the coating on industrial floors.

  • Very high braking effect
  • Very low risk of sliding
  • Medium load capacities
  • Medium speeds

VULKODYN®

VULKODYN® a highly elastic polyurethane elastomer which we have developed for extremely dynamic applications. The material has excellent properties such as approximately 20% lower rolling resistance, higher load capacity at the same speeds, better driving comfort thanks to good damping, lower risk of flat spots during stoppages, hydrolysis resistance and better traction. VULKODYN® is therefore particularly suited for use at high speeds.

  • Long service life
  • Very high load capacities
  • Extreme speeds
  • Minimal rolling resistance

PEVODYN®-Soft

PEVODYN®-Soft 78° Shore A is a new high-quality polyurethane elastomer that we have developed with high dynamic load capacity and significantly reduced starting and rolling resistance. The excellent mechanical properties of the material include high cutting, tearing and abrasion resistance. Thanks to its good noise reduction and vibration damping, PEVODYN®-Soft is particularly suitable for use on surfaces where care is needed. And with its hydrolysis resistance, the material is ideally suited for use in tropical climates.

  • Medium load capacities
  • High speeds
  • High energy efficiency
  • Good noise reduction and vibration damping
  • Floor saving

PEVOSOFT®

PEVOSOFT® is a high-quality polyurethane elastomer which offers good dynamic load capacity, high elasticity, good mechanical wear resistance and good compressive set quality. PEVOSOFT®is also significantly more resilient than rubber. With a Shore hardness of 75° Shore A, it is suitable for all areas of application where better noise reduction and vibration damping, floor-saving usage, high driving comfort or secure transportation of delicate goods are required.

  • Lower load capacities
  • Lower speeds
  • Floor saving
