Sawmills & Planermills
Many materials age and wear quickly; bronze, brass, rubber and steel are not always the most optimal material for a given application which affects efficiency and production. Using Redco™ Plastic products such as Redco™ Polyurethane and Redco™UHMW will improve performance with little initial cost and long term benefits, as well as reduce wear and noise and minimize product damage.
Redwood Plastics and Rubber was the first in bringing wear solutions to the forestry industry. Solutions such as wear strip, kiln cart bushings and impact pads are just some of the products that paved the way for the hundreds of products that are used today. Redco™ plastics and rubber products have been proven to decrease downtime, and reduce noise, vibration and power consumption. Increase production to its fullest potential by adding Redco™ plastic and rubber products; bringing benefits and savings to your site. Redwood Plastics and Rubber specializes in a variety of applications including; shaft bearings, chip screens, channel, sheaves and conveyor liners. Replacing traditional materials with Redco™ plastics and rubber products has never been so easy with the varieties now available.
Cut costs, reduce wear and increase productivity.

Redco™ 9600 Split Impact Bearings
The Redco™ 9600 Bearing is designed specifically for heavy duty, high impact applications. The unit consists of a tough, abrasion resistant urethane bearing (Redco™ 750 or 750XL), surrounded by a softer, more resilient shock absorbing urethane (Redco™ 70A – 1 15/16 & 2 13/16”) (Redco™ 430 – all over sizes), and then encased in a durable fabricated steel housing.
This unique design allows the bearing to withstand continuous shock loads while greatly reducing fatigue to the bearing housing and structural welds and mill supports. Download the PDF for more information.
