ProCut Squeegees

Gum Rubber Squeegee Blades

A man-made synthetic that is typically beige or tan, Gum Rubber squeegees offer maximum water collection on indoor floors that are smooth and even. Gum Rubber is not recommended for use in oily environments as it absorbs oil, which changes its structural integrity and dramatically reduces its effectiveness. Gum Rubber squeegees will wear faster than any of the other types of squeegee blades but are usually the least expensive.

Ideal environment: General purpose. Smooth, even floors with light traffic. Indoors.


 

Genuine PREMATEK™ Rubber Squeegee Blades

Engineered from Natural Rubber using advanced technology to perform as good as or better than Linatex®. Excellent tear resistance.

Ideal environment: Excellent results in many conditions, especially uneven and abrasive surfaces.


Red Gum Rubber Squeegee Blades

A man-made synthetic engineered to perform like Linard®. Excellent tear resistance. This is a harder material than Premium Red that helps reduce squeegee noise. Primarily specified for front squeegees.

Ideal environment: Excellent results in many conditions.


 

Urethane (Polyurethane) Squeegee Blades

Urethane squeegees are amber or opaque in color. They are extremely chemical-resistant and perform well in environments where oil or chemicals are present. Urethane squeegees are the best for use on rough surfaces and on old or uneven floors. They are typically the most expensive blades, but due to their excellent wear life, offer a great value.

Ideal environment: Applications that require oil and chemical resistance. Rough surfaces.


 

Neoprene Squeegee Blades

Neoprene was the first material introduced specifically for use in oily environments but has been replaced in many cases by Urethane. It is still a very cost-effective material for oil resistant applications.

Ideal environment: Applications that require oil and chemical resistance but where price is a factor.
