Polyurethane Tread Material

Caster Concepts processes polyurethane tread material in house, allowing us to create custom formulations to conquer specific challenges. We offer tread materials to help with ergonomics, high speed powered applications, harsh environments, chemicals, moisture and many more challenges.

By processing in house, we are able to offer a high level of customization and flexibility, and quick turn around. Eliminating the delays, hassles and errors associated with shipping out to a 3rd party.

We can offer

  • Custom colors, thickness or surface shape
  • Formulations for common goals or industry applications
  • Custom formulations available for your unique challenge


  • Conveyor Rollers
  • Drive Wheels
  • Dunnage for Transporting
  • Caster Wheels

    Hard Tread

    Hardest, toughest tread we offer, ideal for heavy loads, non marking and wear resistant. This extra hard polyurethane has good water resistance, but is not solvent resistant. It has excellent dynamic performance and very good physical properties. Wheels treaded in hard polyurethane can carry a heavier load than wheels of the same size treaded in standard polyurethane. The harder material makes for an easier to roll. but •noisier’ wheel. (Shore 70D Hardness)

    Ergo Tread

    Our ergonomic polyurethane formulation that returns energy resulting in reduced energy exerted. Ergo Tread helps reduce risk of injuries due to overexertion and accumulated strain due to repetitive activities. The unique formulation achieves a high resistance to debris, reduces noise and won’t damage most flooring. (Shore 84A Hardness)

    HPPT Tread

    A High Performance polyurethane formulation that is ideal for dynamic applications. HPPT resists heat buildup. and can carry higher weight capacities, making it ideal for AGVs, Tuggers and other higher speed, higher weight applications. Has a higher resistance to tearing, permanent deformation and abrasions, than most tread materials. Resistant to many solvents, but has minimal water resistance. (Shore 92A Hardness)

    T/R 95 Tread

    While many polyurethanes offer a 95A Shore hardness, our T/R 95 tread achieves a higher tear resistance and greater strength for extended wear in difficult applications. While maintaining a higher hardness, TIR 95 has greater elasticity resulting in ergonomic benefits and longer use life than standard 95A poly. This formulation achieves good solvent and oil resistance, but is not water resistant. T/R 95 is not recommended for hot and humid environments. It can be used in wet and dry food contact. but requires changes to the standard catalyst and colorant. (Shore 95A Hardness)

    T/R Tread

    Designed to roll easily and quietly. the TIR 85 tread is ideal for applications that require the industrial strength, with a softer touch. This formulation is very resistant with high tear and debris resistance, and moderate solvent and oil resistance, but Is not water resistant. Not ideal for applications in hot and humid areas due to microbial attack. (Shore 85A Hardness)

  • 08200-68-19

    Standard Tread

    Our general purpose material that is good for numerous mainstream applications. It is non-marking with high tear strength and resistance to flat spotting, as well as good solvent and water resistance. (Shore 95A Hardness)
