Is it jockey wheel with rubber wheel better than that with plastic wheel?


Body of the jockey wheels are made of iron, but the wheels can be made of different materials. Main material is rubber and plastic. Weight capacity of a jockey wheel is determined by the wheel largely. The wheel also determines how long time a jockey can be used. This article mainly introduces the difference between rubber and plastic wheels.

1. Maximum load capacity

Wheel is a very important part of the jockey wheel, which also determines the weight capacity of the jockey wheel.

Compared to rubber wheels, plastic wheels of the same size will carry more weight. This is because polyurethane is harder than rubber. Therefore, a jockey wheel with 6'' plastic wheel can load more weight than a jockey wheel with rubber wheel.

2. Flexible comparison

Raw material for rubber wheels is rubber. Material for plastic wheels is polyurethane. Rubber is softer than polyurethane. So rubber wheels have better elasticity and cushioning.

If you want the jockey wheel with good elasticity, rubber wheels is the best choice.


3. Abrasion resistance

Although rubber wheels have good elasticity, they are far less wear resistant than plastic wheels. Rubber wheel will lose pieces of tread over time. In general, the life of plastic wheels is 2-3 times longer than that of rubber wheels. Therefore, the jockey wheel with plastic wheel is more durable than a jockey wheel with rubber wheel.

 

Plastic wheels of the same size will be a little more expensive than rubber wheels. So the jockey wheel with plastic wheel is a little expensive than a jockey wheel with rubber wheel. But it has a greater load capacity and is more durable.
