Performa wheels offer the advantages of both hard and soft tread materials in a single wheel. Like a hard tread wheel, Performa rolls easily and is very durable. Like a soft tread wheel, it rolls quietly, protects floors and resists impacts with a cushion ride. It also features maximum weather-ability, low temperature flexibility, resistance to chemicals, water and steam, and rejects floor debris such as metal shavings. Non-marking thermoplastic elastomer tread is permanently bonded to a ribbed polyolefin wheel core.
Designed for hard impacts and heavy loads, this wheel is injection molded from an exclusive Colson polyolefin compound. The unique ribbed design adds strength. Very light in weight, yet the impact strength of this wheel is far superior to hard rubber wheels. It offers superior resistance to most oils, chemicals, grease, gasoline, cooking fats and acids. In addition, the wheel is stain resistant, non-marking and provides zero water absorption.
Thermo wheels feature a standard operating temperature range from -70°F (continuous service) to +525°F (intermittent service, +480°F continuous service). These wheels are molded from an exclusive engineered resin compound that offers non-marking floor protection, near zero water absorption, high load capacities and long service life. A special manufacturing process enables the wheels to retain a consistent bearing bore even when exposed to elevated temperatures. Furthermore, Thermo wheels are 100% recyclable, and they are highly resistant to animal fats, vegetable oils and salt solutions. The life expectancy of Thermo wheels is three times longer than high-temp phenolic wheels, and they offer an equal load capacity. Unlike high-temp phenolic wheels, Colson Thermo wheels have no outer skin that can break and absorb water or other fluids.
Colson ThermoTech Wheels feature a rubber tread that can take the heat. They are quiet and non-marking for superior floor protection. The rubber tread is an advanced technology rubber compound bonded to an aluminum core.
TPE HI-TEMP wheels are perfect when you need an economical alternative for moderately high temperature environments. The wheels are crafted of grey thermoplastic elastomer tread chemically bonded to a white polyolefin core and feature a single insert molded stainless steel radial bearing. TPE HI-TEMP are ideal for medical applications and environments requiring wash down.
Polyurethane tread is bonded to a polyolefin core. Tread is molded in, around and through a ribbed extension of the core to prevent debonding. Standard colors are maroon tread on grey core. This is a very attractive, all purpose wheel. Resistant to most chemicals, solvents, water and acids.
Rubber HI-TECH wheels are made of a thermoplastic cushion rubber tread bonded to a rugged polyolefin core, with capacities to 150 pounds each.
