Astrak have been supplying rubber pads for steel tracked excavators for almost 10 years and over that period have supplied more than a million pads for a wide variety of machines in many applications. As the market has become more competitive and costs have been driven, quality likewise has been driven down with more and more recycled rubber and filler being commonly used in standard quality rubber pads.
While for many applications, this reduction of quality is acceptable as representing value for money our experience is that many operators are now looking to return to a better-quality product that will offer a life similar to OEM quality pads. Driven by this need in the market place we set about looking for a new source of premium quality rubber pads that would perform as well as the original.
After two years of research and development and with the help of a specialist Malaysian rubber company, we have designed a comprehensive range of pads manufactured from premium quality abrasion-resistant rubber, suitable for a wide range of machines and applications. Independent test results show that these pads offer more than 52% increased durability compared to standard quality rubber pads.
DuraLine Plus is just the product the market has been asking for.
DuraLine Plus Rubber Pads – ROADLINER STYLE
The DuraLine Plus Roadliner Pad is a chunky one-piece vulcanised pad which bolts directly on to the steel track chain.
The strong internal steel core is specially treated to ensure excellent bonding during the vulcanisation process and is fully encased in rubber to prevent any possibility of damage to finished surfaces. The abrasion-resistant, anti-chunking rubber compound ensures excellent durability and consistent wearability.
Ideal for machines from 4T to 26T for a wide variety of applications including rail infrastructure work, individual pads can be replaced quickly and inexpensively as required.
