How Are Rubber Tracks Made?
What are the differences Between Rubber Tracks and How are they Made?
Thinking about using rubber tracks for your heavy equipment? It is important when considering your options to use only high-quality rubber tracks on your Mini Excavators, Compact Track Loaders (CTL) and all other heavy rubber-tracked equipment. Not doing so can lead to all sorts of problems down the line such as punctures and tears. Low-quality rubber tracks tear and wear out faster, slip off rollers and have to be repaired or replaced frequently which is not ideal or cost-effective.

That is why here at Monster Tires, we are always fully stocked with the best-quality, highly-engineered Compact Track Loader rubber tracks and Mini Excavator Rubber Tracks on the market that are durable, high-performing and tear-resistant!
What makes our tracks puncture-proof and highly durable you might ask?
The tracks we offer are made of a mixture of both synthetic and natural rubber compounds that make them highly resistant to tears and cuts and provide a longer service life. This blend allows for heavy machinery to operate effectively on a lower vibration and reduced noise level as well as offering increased flotation, higher speeds and a smoother ride overall. No matter how powerful your equipment operates, our rubber tracks are designed to withstand torque caused while your equipment is in use.
There are two types of rubber tracks on the market
- Continuous steel cord
- Non-continuous steel cord
We Specialize in the following Tracks
Rubber tracks that utilize continuous steel cord technology have continuous steel belts inside them that are circular and not spliced. This continuous steel guarantees that there are no weak spots along the steel cord. They also do not overlap which is usually ideal.
To strengthen the rubber tracks, the rubber tracks have internal steel cables embedded and the forged steel core is dipped in and coated with a tough rubber adhesive to bond the steel to the rubber. Rubber tracks that utilize a forged steel core, like the tracks we supply here at Monster Tires, last longer than the cast iron sometimes used by some producers of rubber tracks.
Cast iron might be a cheaper route to take but they tend to break and crack easily and in the grand scheme of things, we do not recommend that you go with this option. That is why all our rubber tracks only use high-quality, break-resistant steel reinforcements.
