Phenolic & Polyolefin Wheels

Phenolic and polyolefin wheels are commonly used in industrial material handling applications.

Phenolic wheels are made from a composite material consisting of phenolic resin and macerated canvas fibers. Polyolefin wheels are made from a blended polymers, which includes materials like polyethylene and polypropylene. Choosing between phenolic and polyolefin wheels depends on factors such as load capacity, the type of surface they will be used on, the presence of chemicals, and the desired level of durability.

As with any wheel, there are tradeoffs when it comes to selecting the correct material. Rely on your application to determine which material is most appropriate.
