Polyurethane solid tire VS Rubber solid tire

Rubber has been in the history of tires for more than 100 years and we are very grateful to scientists who invented rubber and tires, they have improved the quality of our lives. The status of rubber tires is unparalleled,they have their place either on car or other fork trucks.

But with the improvement of people's quality of life, people pay more and more attention to product quality and environmental issues.

Tire users in the use of the process also continue to reflect some of the problems, as shown below:
▲Rubber tires are replaced frequently

▲Rubber tire are not wearable enough
High maintenance costs
easily deformed
severe pollution

Poor heat dissipation

Black braking traces, Cause highly floor cleaning costs
▲The rims are easily split ring and damage to the tire

For the above reasons, our factory began to carry out research on polyurethane solid tires on 2010. Over the five years, polyurethane tyres have been developed through numerous studies and trials.The advantages better than rubber are as follows:

5 times more wearable than ordinary rubber tires
▲Tire working life over 10000 hours
Cost-effective,save about 45-67.8% of your cost
Explosion protection
Environmentally protection,Material recyclable
▲Dust invisible,trace no-marking
▲Special rims,promise Never slip ring
Good vibration performance

Cutting and Tearing Resistance
▲Comfortable performance ,high tensile strength
Light weight, lower rolling resistance
