Urethane Outlasts Rubber

REDCO™ 80A GRIPPER PADS

A producer of concrete construction blocks, slabs and pavers was having problems with one of it’s production lines. A piece of equipment called an antiquer had gripper pads made of rubber that were wearing out prematurely. The antiquer takes a split face block and pulls it through a set of carbide tipped flapper wheels to give the surface an antique appearance. The gripper pads are on the top and bottom of the chain to pull the blocks through.

We suggested moving to Redco™ 80A (polyurethane) and put 100 pads in place. The urethane pads are outlasting the rubber pads and standing up  much better, even with their most “ugly” blocks.
