Outrigger Pads: Dual Materials Outrigger Pads: Dual Materials

Timcogrip outrigger pads are manufactured using a co-extrusion process that molecularly bonds a thermoplastic elastomer rubber to a high-density polyethylene. The rubber side grips roads to prevent slippage of outriggers for cranes and other large equipment. The heavy-duty polyethylene distributes the weight, preventing damage to the road surface.

Zero-VOC Paint:  Now Fully Tintable Zero-VOC Paint: Now Fully Tintable

Natura is a zero-VOC acrylic-latex interior paint that is now available in thousands of hues and a wide range of sheens. The zero-VOC status of the paint is unaffected by tinting, thanks to a patented waterborne colorant system that introduces no VOCs during the process.

Wire-rope diagnostic tool: Detects Flaws Wire-rope Diagnostic Tool: Detects Flaws

RopeQ is a diagnostic tool that uses electromagnetic induction to assess the inner and outer strands of wire rope. The tool’s non-destructive testing method is able to detect flaws that are not visible on the surface of wire ropes and thus improve overall safety in lifting applications. RopeQ fastens to wire-rope assemblies and records a series of interior images along the entire length of the wire rope. The resulting data then can be used to pinpoint areas and degrees of degradation.
