Design Your Deadplate

Deadplate-Pads
Posted by on March 1, 2017

Redco Deadplate by Redwood Plastics is a shock absorbing polyurethane design for use in lumber mills. Deadplate’s elastomeric properties cushion the blow of lumber reducing rebound and protecting machinery. Getting a quote on a custom Deadplate application isn’t as complicated as you might think. You need to be able to provide four pieces of information:

  1. Size (length x width) of impact zone to be covered
  2. Maximum weight of lumber that may hit the Deadplate
  3. Maximum dimensions of lumber being processed
  4. Speed the lumber hits the impact zone (important!)

Based off that information the Redwood Plastics representative can figure out a design. Usually the Deadplate has a metal backing it is bonded to and is then bonded to a face of either steel or Redco 500 urethane – essentially creating a “sandwich”. The Redco 500 is the most popular except in cases of very large lumber being processed. The process from gathering information, to design, to quote is usually 24-36 hours.
