Millions of sports enthusiasts have them in their homes and use them regularly in their spare time – we’re talking about inline skates. These provide enjoyment for leisure skaters on a gentle skate through parks or along river banks, a rush for speed skaters as they race at a faster pace, or the chance to perfect the tricks and jumps of aggressive inline skating in skate parks. It’s amazing what the little wheels have to withstand – jumping, braking, fast changes in direction – and despite all that, they still need to have a long service life!
What are the most important features of the wheels? These days, almost all inline skate wheels are made from polyurethane. This is a plastic that is pretty hard and can be used to replace rubber or even metal. LANXESS produces polyurethanes under the brand names Adiprene® and Vibrathane®.
“Our family of castable specialist elastomers offers skaters a particularly comfortable ride and good grip. The wheels are very abrasion-resistant, and exhibit low rolling resistance and low heat buildup. This gives them an especially long service life. The material is therefore extremely versatile and meets consumer demand for innovative, comfortable and attractive skate wheels,” explains Michael Timm, head of Marketing and Development.
