Reading, PA (PRWEB) March 27, 2014
Quadrant Engineering Plastic Products, the global leader of machinable plastics, is bringing the leading portfolio of dump body liners, cast components , and near net shapes to the Mid-America Trucking Show (MATS) on March 27-29, 2014. Quadrant specializes in metal-to-plastic conversions that improve material quality, reduce costs, and streamline manufacturing in the trucking industry.
Quadrant's plastic and polymer specialty components are superior when it comes to high impact strength, fatigue life, and wear capabilities, and can be molded into complex shapes at a much lower cost than machining metal components. Plastic cast components are lighter in weight, reducing fuel expenses while enhancing performance and overall product value. Featured specialty components include Nylatron® wear pads, Nylatron® GSM sheaves, gears and sprockets, Monocast® outrigger pads, track plates, and QuickSilver® side rails (now available in colors).
According to QuickSilver® National Sales Manager Tom West, “Our cast components and near net shapes fill the performance gap left by metals by delivering higher performance, weight reduction, and eliminating costly repairs. Our chain sprockets made from lightweight, self-lubricating Nylatron® GSM require less energy to operate, allowing more power to be used to drive the chain, which provides a cost-effective and durable solution.”
Along with its five-star lineup of trucking products, the legendary QuickSilver® and Durapro dump body liners will also be on display. “QuickSilver® high performance dump truck liners are designed for rapid release and to clean-out and clean-up some of the toughest materials like hot asphalt, rocks, gravel, sludge and wet dirt – they really are made to haul it all. Combine that with the industry's best warranty and it's really a no-brainer,” says Tom. Quadrant's lining materials are the industry's only lining product that carry a non-pro-rated lifetime warranty against cracking, breaking, and seam failure.
Get your “truck-on” at booth #20085 at MATS 2014. Application specialists and technical experts will be in attendance to answer questions about factory installs, on-site retrofits, and metal to plastic conversions.
