What to Know About Phenolic Wheels Caster

casters and wheels

Phenolic wheels are generally made from the macerated canvas and mixed with the phenolic resin, or molded in high temperature and pressure. The hardness can be compared to the polished maple flooring.


The phenolic caster wheels generally are suggested for the smooth concrete and used for the storage (or standing) loads without any permanent set. The caster wheels are very much resistant to grease, oil, gasoline or mild acids. It isn’t recommended for the wet applications where wheel is standing in the water. They’re affected in different degrees by the strong acids and a few alkaline solutions.

The temperature range will be -40° – +250° F, with the intermittent use over 300° F. The phenolic caster wheels can carry the loads as high as same size of iron wheel. This wheel material might chip and cut from the contact with the steel plate and from rolling on the steel parts on floor. Wheel tread might show some wear from the repeated travel on rough surfaces. The floor wear is a bit except where the floors are starting to deteriorate. The wheels are made with the laminated unmacerated tread for providing 25 per cent of more capacity as well as higher chip resistance.


  • Temperature Resistance to over 300° F
  • Impact Resistant
  • Grease Resistant
  • Gasoline Resistant
  • Oil Resistant

The phenolic wheels are best for the curing ovens, waste bins, heavy material handling, platform trucks, baking ovens, autoclaves, or high temperature applications.


The wide ranges of the phenolic wheels are accessible in the market to select from. The standard black wheels are generally molded with the premium phenolic resins. The laminated phenolic wheels will feature the wound tread with the softened canvas center. The laminated phenolic wheels will have 40% of higher impact resistance as well as carry around 25% of higher load than the standard phenolic wheels.

 (Not suggested for the wet applications where wheel is in standing water. Because of hardness, wheels generally tend to generate important noise from this cart since there’s not any dampening that will be there with the polyurethane wheel.) Smaller wheels are ideal for the light and the compact objects, so they are used in any kind of situation. Materials of this caster wheels make sure you will buy casters that can be best for the industrial building. You will find the cast iron wheels, rubber wheels, elastic wheels, wheels with the polyurethane tires as well as aluminum rims, or wheels with the pneumatic tyres, and resin wheels will withstand the high temperatures, and nylon wheels.
