TPA…-ELS – Wheel and castor series

Electrically conductive wheels and castors with thermoplastic rubber tread and polypropylene wheel centre

The tread of electrically conductive wheels and castors in the TPA series is made from a high-quality thermoplastic rubber-elastomer (TPE) with a hardness of 85° Shore A. This material is cast onto a polypropylene wheel centre. The tread is non-marking and forms a strong, unbreakable bond with the wheel centre. The wheels and castors in the TPA…-ELS series offer a particularly low level of rolling and swivel resistance and are electrically conductive with a maximum ohmic resistance of 104 ohms.

They are frequently used for medical equipment and measuring and testing equipment which needs to be protected against electric discharge.
