Retlaw Industries Produces Durable Plastics
As with all of our plastic products, we stand behind the quality and craftsmanship of our pulleys. Glass-reinforced nylon idler pulleys produced by Retlaw possess many advantages over standard steel pulleys:
- Runs Cooler – Thermoplastic idler pulleys have lower heat conductivity than steel or other metals, reducing wear over the long term.
- No Rivet Fatigue – Our pulleys are produced as one piece, eliminating the use of riveting which tends to become weak over time.
- Longer Belt Life – Due to a lower conductivity coefficient, less heat buildup gets transferred to the belt, giving it longer life.
- No Corrosion – Glass-reinforced nylon thermoplastic will not corrode the pulley in the way ferrous metals will.
An Idler Pulley for all Applications
Retlaw Industries Inc. has manufactured OEM products for use in a host of industries and a spectrum of products. Satisfied Retlaw customers have installed our idler pulleys, sprockets and adapters in products ranging from lawnmowers to home gyms.
Our inventory of pulley wheels offers many sizes and styles including:
- Cable Idlers – Rounded, deep channel to accommodate standard steel cable gauges
- V-Belt Idler – Idler built to be used with V-belt, which offers excellent protection from lateral belt slippage
- Round Belt Idler – Rounded channels meant to control rope and round rubber belts
- Flangeless Idler – Often used to support sections of conveyor belts, these channel-less adapters can accommodate wide belts
- Flat Idler – Shallow, flat-channeled pulley wheel used with standard drive belts
