Shorter days and colder temperatures only mean one thing: winter is coming. Along with slippery roads and icy conditions, winter has the potential to create unforeseen obstacles that prevent your business from getting the job done. While the status quo can be effective under normal circumstances, winter’s unpredictability can degrade your equipment and freeze your operations in the blink of an eye. Redwood Plastics & Rubber’s wide range of rubber and plastic solutions can help your business conquer winter and continue to thrive even during the toughest weather the north has to offer.
Redco™ Gladiator Snowplow Blade
Built from Redco™ rubber, UHMW, or polyurethane grades, the Redco™ Gladiator Snowplow Blade is the innovative, smart solution to clear residential streets, rugged roads, airport runways, and everything in between. Unlike traditional steel snowplow blades that are rigid and inefficient in harsh conditions, our Redco™ Gladiator Snowplow Blades’ resilient rubber compound is highly flexible and durable, allowing your fleet to plow snow and slush without gouging irregular surfaces or damaging pavement markers along the way.
Redco™ Gladiator Snowplow Blades are built for convenience; simply latch or bolt the rubber blade to your snowplow’s existing metal scooper and your fleet will be ready for high-speed runs in even the harshest conditions. With one simple adjustment to your blade height, you can transition from lightly packed snow to densely packed slush and ice with ease. In tough terrain, the Redco™ Gladiator Snowplow Blade’s impact and shock absorption will minimize stress and abrasion, resulting in a longer life for your fleet. Best of all, since Redco™ Gladiator Snowplow Blades last 400% longer than traditional steel, blade replacements will be far less frequent, allowing you to lower your maintenance costs and limit your potential downtime when your fleet is needed most.
Redco™ Outrigger Pads
Traditional outrigger pads, commonly made of suboptimal materials such as wood or metal, are susceptible to rot, corrosion, and rust in any climate. During the winter months, cold air can make your wooden outrigger pads brittle and weak, potentially leading to structural collapses that can have disastrous consequences for your equipment and operators.
In comparison, Redco™ Outrigger Pads are made from UHMW and nylon that will not rot, corrode, rust, or become brittle as traditional outrigger pads do. Redco™ Outrigger Pads are capable of maintaining its structural integrity while withstanding 1,000,000 pounds of compressive force in frigid temperatures. Not only are Redco™ Outrigger Pads capable of getting the job done in any weather conditions you can throw at them, they are also easily maneuverable with a weight 1/7th that of traditional metal outrigger pads.

Redco™ Tivar® Lining Solutions
Even during everyday operations under normal conditions, truck beds can become abrased over time from moving large quantities of asphalt, rocks, and other aggregate loads. Moreover, truck beds are susceptible to material hang-ups that are time-consuming, frustrating, and expensive. As the cold winter weather sets in, these issues are exacerbated as naturally abrasive ice formations damage truck beds by breaking through cheap liners and clumping with other materials, while snow and ice deposits easily cling to metal, resulting in severe material hang-ups.
Our Redco™ Tivar® Lining Solutions can help you mitigate the damage and frustration that winter conditions can bring. Made from our special line of polyethylene used exclusively for premium lining solutions, your materials will simply slide right off thanks to Tivar®’s low friction coefficient and virtually zero moisture absorption. With resistance to chemicals, abrasion, and corrosion, Redco™ Tivar® Lining Solutions have the versatility to be used in a wide range of applications, including:
- Waste management plants
- Grain processing
- Mineral & metal processing
- Power & coal plants
- Steel mills
- Cement plants
- Chemical plants
- Package handling plants
Redwood Plastics & Rubber offers installation services to make the switch as convenient as possible. Upon request, Redwood Plastics & Rubber also offers Redco™ Tivar® Lining Solutions in custom formulations such as ceramic-filled and static dissipative.

I’m not confident we can be exact with the -80C figure. Better to just stay on the safe side and say “frigid temperatures”. Not your fault
