The caster material must be selected according to the requirements the caster needs to meet. Generally speaking: No material can meet all of the requirements equally well.

Due to its relative hardness, however, it makes great demands of the floor, because the load is concentrated on a very small contact area.

The properties of polyamide and solid rubber, for example, differ widely with regard to all parameters. Polyamide is usually the best choice for transporting heavy load, or when the equipment is moved on hard-wearing floors – however, the noise of the moving wheels can quickly increase on uneven floors. With sensitive floors and lower load, polyurethane meets the requirements and at the same time offers extremely floor-friendly properties.
