Hawiflex polyurethane gripper strips, reduce personnel / maintenance costs

Gripper strips made of Hawiflex® polyurethane

Avoid material fractures and abrasion residues like those with rubber

Gripper strips are located at the gripping end of gripper arms and are used, among other things, in the sand-lime brick and concrete industry for handling palletized and unpalletized building material packages. Polyurethane gripper strips offer in comparison to the usual grippers enormous advantages for long-term use in terms of abrasion and usability in weather-unstable outdoor applications.

This is due to the fact that our products are free of extracting elements, UV-resistant and highly abrasion-resistant.  The bottom line is that the physical properties remain stable over the entire period of use without embrittlement process, which can ultimately lead to material breakouts. Due to the high abrasion resistance there are also no unwanted black stripes on your stone packages. Our range of gripper strips also includes profiles for truck-mounted cranes or forklift grabs.

  • Reduce personnel and maintenance costs: The material does not become brittle and offers a much longer service life compared with rubber.
  • Avoid material fractures and abrasion residues like those with rubber.
