Did you know: You can replace metal chain sprockets with UHMW and reduce noise?

Solving Chain Wear: Though using a UHMW channel already we were still having wear problems as the chain was sliding which also cause noise as it meshed with the sproket. We were reffered to Redwood Plastics  & we tried their recommendation, a custom “Titanium” UHWM (we were using Virgin). It had 2-3 times better wear  & replaced the metal sproket with UHMW…it’s elimnated the noise & the chain moves properly on the track.
Hard to believe that there are plastics out there that can outperform metal!
