Redco™ Vypur™ Fras is a high-performance elastomer grade of polyurethane designed for applications where exceptional wear and abrasion resistance is required due to shock, vibration and impact. These properties are coupled with MSHA certified Fire Retardant and Anti-Static properties in accordance with MSHA IC-297.
Cast polyurethanes are tough, rubbery materials that can be depended upon to retain their original shape and properties for a long service life. They are cost effective and dependable elastomers that combine some of the performance advantages of engineering plastics, metals and ceramics along with the resiliency and flexibility of rubber.
Redco™ Vypur™ urethanes are renowned for their high load bearing capacity, high impact strength, high abrasion resistance, high resilience and excellent resistance to oil and grease. Often chosen where resistance to the actions of sliding, stretching, load-bearing, impacting, cutting and tearing, compression, torsional forces, aging and oil-resistance are involved.
Redco™ Vypur™ Fras is a specially formulated range of grades available from 85 Shore “A” through 75 Shore “D” hardness and can be molded or machined into parts of virtually unlimited configuration. Most common urethane parts can also become MSHA compliant by molding them using Redco™ Vypur™ Fras.
Conveyor Headrigs, Take-Up and Idler Pulleys, Belt Cleaners, Scrapers and Wipers, Skirtboards, Transfer Chute Liners, Pivot & Hanger Bearings, Bumpers, Conveyor Load-Out Bars, Cable Protectors & Crossover Mats, Chain Flights, Sprockets, Bearings & Bushings, etc.
Also available: MSHA approved Redco™ Tivar Burnguard™. This UHMW-PE grade has many applications in mining involving coal bins, bunkers, chutes, hoppers, feeders, slider beds and skirtboards. The material is UL 94V-0 registered. Burnguard also meets ASTM E-662 and Bombardier 800 standards.
