There is no denying the importance of snowplows to those communities who live in areas that see the presence of snow. Sometimes, a snowplow is required to engage in heavy-duty activities that call for more durable parts. Rubber-Cal offers a rubber plow edge that is made from 2000 PSI tensile strength skirtboard rubber. These rubber plow blades have a very high tensile strength of 2000 PSI, meaning that they are very durable products that can endure higher levels of physical abrasions before they reach a breaking point. This particular type of rubber cutting blade is meant for the more heavy duty and intense snowplowing applications. It is only available in a thickness gauge of 1” and comes in two width options of 6” and 8”. Custom thickness and widths are available upon request.
Superior Abrasion Resistance: This high tensile rubber cutting edge is made from skirtboard rubber. This synthetic elastomer is a mixture of SBR and Gum rubber. It is a popular choice for many industrial applications due to its excellent physical durability. It can resist physical abrasions at a superior level when compared to other materials. This contributes to its high level of tensile strength. Tensile strength essentially refers to how much physical abuse a product can take before it breaks. With a tensile rating of 2000 PSI, these rubber plow blades are our most durable plow edge products available.
Reduced Damage to Surfaces: A rubber cutting edge on a snowplow is meant to make contact with surfaces. Some snowplows operate with metal or polyurethane blades. These materials can be awfully damaging to both the surfaces being plowed and the vehicle itself. A rubber cutting blade, on the other hand, possesses a level of elasticity that metal and polyurethane lack. A plow edge made of rubber will be softer against concrete, asphalt, and cobblestone, therefore reducing any damage that may come to the existing surfaces that the snowplow vehicle goes over.
We realize that not every snowplow will have identical means of attaching rubber plow blades onto them. Your specific vehicle may require attachment holes or slots placed at specific points. If you do not have the time to drill the holes yourself, you can place your confidence in us. Our expert staff will ensure that the installation holes/slots are made on the plow edge according to your exact specifications. All we need from you is a drawing of where you want the holes drilled. Our aim is to give you a ready to use rubber cutting blade from the moment you receive it.
Conforms to uneven surfaces
Can be used in temperatures as low as -20° F
Rubber cutting edge absorbs impact and shock
Rubber plow blades are far quieter than metal blades
Available in custom lengths or standard rolls of 50ft in length
2000 PSI Rubber blades exhibit superb abrasion resistance, hence excellent for all commercial use. Rubber blades are more flexible and elastic than metal blades, therefore absorb impact, shock, and conform easily to the road surface. Rubber will reduce damage to the road surface, making it the ideal choice for use on concrete, parking garages, brick, pavers, cobblestone, or any other uneven surface.
