LINCO offers phenolic caster wheels that are ideally used in greasy and oily environments. Made from a special blend of macerated canvas and phenolic resin these wheels are designed to be specifically resistant to slipping in an oily or greasy environment. Phenolic caster wheels are particularly useful in auto garages and industrial settings for this reason alone. Although highly resistant to slipping, phenolic wheels should ideally be used on a smooth concrete surface as a rough surface will cause premature and uneven wear on the wheels leading to early and often replacement. Phenolic caster wheels are also susceptible to water damage and should be kept away from exposure to water as often as possible.
Despite their small list of avoidances, phenolic caster wheels boast the same strength as metal wheels and can insure the safe transport of any weight baring load across the oiliest of surfaces. They also serve as an excellent caster wheel for storage carts in oily greasy environments as they can withstand any spill or spray of such materials with very little damage to the wheel itself. LINCO also offers high temp phenolic caster wheels if the object that they are affixed to will often be carrying a high temperature cargo that could possibly melt or damage a lower temperature grade wheel. Our phenolic caster wheels come in a wide range of colors, bores, and sizes to meet any project or repair need. LINCO phenolic caster wheels are an excellent choice for a slip resistant wheel so long as the surface that it is being pushed on is a hard-flat surface.
