Offshore applications

Featuring Vulkollan’s® optimal mechanical properties and a proven bonding agent, Vulkoprin’s heavy load wheels guarantee reliable performances and a maximum life span in extreme, rough weather.

We know from experience that the extreme environmental conditions of offshore applications have a negative effect on the durability of standard PUR wheels. That’s why we’ve developed a special Vulkollan® formulation with anti-hydrolysis additives and a proprietary bonding process to prevent premature debonding from rust. Several anti-corrosive paint systems help to prevent corrosion of the wheel centers.
