The excellent load-bearing and shock-absorbing qualities of urethane, as well as improved cost/performance make it the material of choice in the manufacture of escalator and elevator tire tread. Urethane tread is known to last 3 to 4 times longer than conventional rubber tread.
Urethane parts provide longer service life when compared to plastics and rubber, and lower noise abatement properties when compared to metals. For these and many other reasons product engineers specify urethane components.
Whether you are designing a new elevator & escalator piece of equipment or need to replace an old one, American Urethane, Inc. is the company you can trust to deliver a quality custom-molded urethane part, on time, and at a reasonable price.
