Irathane Systems Inc.

Designed to handle heavier loading than conventional materials, these pads can be used for load bearing and leveling applications, and as an economical replacement for laminated rubber pads, the company says. They can be manufactured plain, with holes, with rivet grooves, tapered or to custom shapes and sizes. Currently available in 70, 80 and 90 durometer (nominal), all pads are designed to be resistant to attack from ozone and hydrolysis in wet applications. They also resist degradation in most chemical environments and retain durability at a temperature as low as -40 F, the company says.
