Since 1957, Iracore has manufactured top-quality components for use in heavy industry across North America. We have a proven track record of engineering innovative products that resist abrasion, corrosion, and wear, all while delivering unrivalled performance under the most demanding working conditions.

Today, Iracore uses proprietary polyurethane compounds to create the next generation of load-bearing pads for the North American railroad and construction industries. Read on to discover how Iracore load-bearing pads offer superior strength, durability, and value that can take your project to the next level.

Engineered for Performance

Urethane’s durability and cost-effectiveness have made it a favoured alternative to rubber-based compounds in a wide variety of industrial uses. In load-bearing applications, urethane has superior abrasion and ground-level ozone compared to rubber, neoprene, and other traditional solutions. Whereas many natural and synthetic rubbers will eventually crack and deteriorate, urethane-based compounds offer superior durability to stand the test of time.

Unlike other urethane manufacturers and distributors, Iracore sources raw materials directly from major chemical producers to engineer polyurethane compounds suitable for specific applications and use cases. Our formulations have been developed through decades of field knowledge to meet rigorous operating conditions, including the unique challenges of the railroad and construction industries. Iracore compounds have been proven time and again to stand up to the harshest environments, offering superior load-bearing capabilities compared to the competition.

Iracore load-bearing pads are engineered to outperform and outlast conventional polyurethanes, polyethylenes, rubber, neoprene and steel in any environment. Our compounds are proven to retain performance and durability at temperatures as low as -40ºF, making them suitable for the harshest North American conditions. This makes them a cost-effective, competitively-priced alternative to conventional rubber and neoprene pads, offering consistently superior capabilities in every use case.

Built to Every Specification, Including Yours

Iracore load-bearing pads are approved by all major railroad companies, including CN, CPR, BNSF, and AREMA. No matter where you are or who you’re working within during your next project, Iracore load-bearing pads exceed regulatory requirements and standards, making them a superior choice for operations across North America.

Iracore offers custom-engineered bridge load-bearing pads to meet design needs. No matter what your next project calls for, our team can create and fabricate load-bearing pads to exacting specifications, including custom dimensions, holes for clearing bolts, and more.

Our manufacturing facility is capable of high-volume output, allowing us to support projects with the most demanding requirements. We are committed to our ISO 9001 quality management system, allowing us to deliver top-quality products on-schedule for operations of all sizes and scopes.
