Wheels for Casters

Rubber – Thermal Plastic Wheels

Softer than polyurethane, Rubber-Thermal Plastic caster wheels can withstand exposure to many chemicals and solvents with less than 10% acidity. This material also climbs easier over obstacles, uneven floors, joints, and gaps, better grips slippery floors, absorbs shocks, and protects floors.
