The Cold or Wet Storage Specialist

Cushothane® EZ™

Condition
• At critical low temperature, polyurethane can reach its glass transition point and the hardness + brittleness increase exponentially.

Major issues
• Many Polyurethanes have a relatively high glass transition temperature and many cold storage facilities maintain temperatures approaching this level.
• As the Polyurethane reaches the glass transition temperature it will harden -  causing the tire to lose traction and spin, increase the braking distance and accelerating chunking.

Solutions
• Use Specialty Polyurethane that has a significantly lower glass transition temperature.
• Cushothane® EZ™ 85A is our compound of choice in this application for both tires & load wheels.
• Grooving and siping will provide better traction for tires when used in the presence or water/liquid.
