Why Urethan Rollers Used By Many Companies

by Alfredo Harper

Urethane rollers have been around for a little while now, and they have started to become one of the more popular options for manufacturers. While they may cost a little more than traditional options, there is a reason why so many people are making room in their budget for them. If you are in need of new rollers, whether you are building a new business or renovating your old one, then here are a few reasons why you should consider choosing a urethane roller as your primary option.

So Many Different Applications

Some types of rollers are specifically built for one purpose, either on a conveyor belt or perhaps as part of a pulley system. Urethane rollers can be used across a range of industries and in a variety of environments, which makes them one of the most versatile options you will find on the market. It can be made special for each individual application, or you can buy just a standard urethane roller if it is not vital that you have it tailored to your specific needs. The best way to find out if you urethan rollers will work for you is to contact your local manufacturer, as they will be happy to help get you the rollers you need.

Very Low Impact

Because of the materials used in the creation of a urethane roller, there is very little impact on the items that they come into contact with. They will not damage them in any way you do not intend to (for example, some people use them in ringer or pinch rollers where the purpose is to apply pressure) and they do not leave stains or tears. This makes them great for more delicate materials and also good for long-term use, as there will be no difference between the first use and the thousandth use. 

Stronger Than Rubber

Rubber is what has generally been used in most rollers not covered in polyurethane, but that is slowly changing as more and more companies and warehouses realize that polyurethane is actually stronger than rubber. This allows it to work in the toughest of environments for longer, whereas you might have to replace rubber rollers on an almost weekly or even daily basis. Try out a urethane roller and see for yourself just how strong they are, you might just be surprised.
