A lot of regions in America see snowfall. Northern and Eastern areas are accustomed to experiencing snow every winter. As fun as snow may be, it can unfortunately bring some hazards along with it. As a result, people need to use snowplow machines to clear away snow from their driveways, streets, and parking lots. A vital part of any snowplow is the snowplow cutting edge. Rubber-Cal’s rubber plow blades are made of tough and durable skirtboard rubber that has a tensile strength of 725 PSI. Tensile strength refers to a material’s ability to withstand physical stress before it breaks or fails. Rubber like this is a great material for use as a plow edge because it is far more flexible and elastic than metal. Consumers also benefit from the wide variety of gauges that these rubber plow blades are available in.
Superior Abrasion Resistance: The secret behind the durability of this snowplow cutting edge lies within the skirtboard rubber material used to make it. Skirtboard is a popular synthetic rubber that is a blend of the SBR and Gum rubbers. People love to use it for industrial applications that require rubber parts that can take a beating. At 725 PSI, this skirtboard plow rubber has a good level of abrasion resistance. As a result, it can be dragged along rough surfaces like concrete, asphalt, and cobblestone without you having to worry about any damage to the road or the snowplow.
Meant for Residential Use: With a medium level tensile strength of 725 PSI, these rubber plow blades are great for light to medium duty residential applications. It is in residential areas where they truly shine. These cutting edges are meant for homeowners who need to clear away snow from their driveways or their neighborhood streets and sidewalks. Thanks to its elasticity, it can be dragged along residential surfaces like concrete and cobblestone with ease. The chances of this plow rubber causing damage to such surfaces are far less than if metal or polyurethane blades are used.
Cost-Effective Rubber: Skirtboard rubber plow blades have a key advantage in terms of affordability. This type of snowplow cutting edge is far more affordable than the polyurethane or metal blades that are normally geared towards snowplows. Rubber is more readily available. Despite its affordability, this product does not skimp on function. Rubber is perhaps the most cost-effective material to use as a plow edge. It is hard to find other materials like this plow rubber that combine durability and elasticity.
