U-Channel edge trim is used as a protective edge for shaker screens in aggregate applications and can be used on other industrial equipment as a protective edge. Polyurethane U-Channel Edge Trim offers better wear and long service time when compared to Rubber U-Channel saving on replacement downtime. EPDM Rubber U-Channel Edge Trim offers better flexibility for a greater range of temperatures, while remaining a cost-effective option. Dependability in U-Channel Edge trim is essential, and both materials offer great benefits for ensuring reliable coverage of rough edges.
EPDM Rubber U-Channel material has excellent resistance to heat, light, and ozone. With EPDM’s capability to withstand higher temperature environments, it is capable of being used in outdoor environments for many years, without degradation. The flexibility of EPDM U-Channel is good into lower temperatures as well, maintaining its elastic properties in temperatures as low as -22°F. Due to the nature of EPDM rubber, it has a poor resistance to fuels, oils and alcohols.
Polyurethane U-Channel is an incredibly strong and versatile material. Unlike many other rubber materials, Polyurethane U-Channel’s high strength and high density make it an excellent material in cases where high abrasion or cutting resistance are deciding factors. Urethane can handle high impact applications where other rubbers would fail, and it has a extremely high tensile strength. Urethane Rubber is also chemical and oil resistant.
Alway choose a U-Channel Edge Trim material that is optimal for the work environment required. Installing U-Channel edge trim is a simple task to accomplish. Always make sure to check that the flexibility of the chosen U-Channel material can properly conform to the shape of the edge. For best results, it is advisable to install U-Channel Edge Trim with a small amount of overlap at connecting edges, so that when butted together, the U-Channel will not experience any stretching. For large installations of U-Channel Edge Trim, use of a pneumatic air hammer may be advisable.
