    • Abrasion Resistance
    • Elastomeric Memory
    • Non Brittle
  • Advantages Versus Rubber
    • Abrasion Resistance
    • Microorganism Resistance
    • Clarity, Translucence
    • Non-Marking & Non-Staining
    • Cut and Tear Resistance
    • Oil Resistance
    • Harder Durometer Range
    • Ozone Resistance
    • High or Low Hysteresis
    • Pourable & Castable
    • Higher Load Bearing
    • Versatility

 

5. How is the Patented Precision Pro Redefining the Caster Industry?

The Swivel-EAZ® Pro Precision Caster is maintenance free and will create the finest ergonomic and engineered caster system for limitless motion and ease of movement available through the unique patented design the Swivel-EAZ® Pro opens new doors.
