Polyurethane tyres appear on electric lift trucks that are used indoors where the surface is smooth and even.
Polyurethane is favoured in this application because its load capacity greatly exceeds rubber and can be used on compact forklift types.
Machines fitted with poly tyres (poly wheels) respond differently in situations encountered during normal work activity. This includes:
· Rolling Resistance
· Load Capacity
· Wear and Abrasion Resistance
· Cutting and Tearing Resistance
· High Speed Operation
· Floor Marking
· Response on Wet Floors
· Chemical Resistance
The cushioning ability of a tyre is directly related to its durometer or hardness. The higher the durometer number, the harder the tyre. What is so important about this is that a softer tyre absorbs more impact. Rubber tyres have a range of 67 to 75 durometer while polyurethane tyres have a range between 83 and 95.
