Redco™ 81X Channel


Fight friction and reduce costs with long-wearing Redco™ UHMW Belt and Chain Channel.
Redwood Plastics carries many standard profiles in-stock with custom extrusions available.

SKU: R-5007 Category:


5 foot sections of Redco™ UHMW Channel (U Channel)

Redco™ UHMW Channel reduces chain or belt wear by reducing friction. Unlike metal-to-metal contact, because of UHMW’s very low coefficient of friction and self-lubricating properties, metal chain glides along the plastic channel with extremely reduced abrasion.

Replacing steel channel with plastic channel also reduces power consumption and saves premature replacement costs of both the chain and equipment.
