The previous team used a product called PolyShield, which is a tough, flexible dip that protects, insulates and seals almost any surface. Color codes all items for safety, and reduces corrosion, noise and shock. Cushions grip surface and lasts for years. Weatherproof ability seals out salt, acids, and other liquids. Seals to prevent fraying of rope and fabric. Also works like a paint for corroision protection, but won’t crack or chip like dried films. Helps shatter proof glass parts. It also works well on wheels for a rescue robot. However, the manufacturer has gone out of business. Oh noes.
Ever since the shutdown of PolyShield, we have been looking for different products to apply to ours wheels. We have been looking at other alternatives, we are thinking of applying something very similar to what was done last year. We will be experimenting on different ways we can solve this problem these experiments include using rubber (or something similar to rubber) tires or trying an alternative to PolyShield.
