Guards against dust and maintains lubrication of Heavy Equipment joints
Worcester, MA – Jefferson Rubber Works, Inc. (JRW), a leading manufacturer and provider of custom-engineered, injection-molded rubber solutions, offers protective dust boot covers for off-road vehicles. For over 30 years, JRW has designed and manufactured rubber protective boots for Constant Velocity (CV) Joints used in large off-road construction vehicles and heavy equipment.
The CV Joint in off-road equipment provides consistent drive shaft speeds regardless of the operating angle of the joint, and requires proper lubrication to maintain functionality. Jefferson’s rubber boots have proven exceedingly effective at maintaining the necessary volume of grease to keep the joint lubricated while protecting against dirt and water in an off-road environment, where dust makes the joint more susceptible to failure.
Using only the most durable synthetic rubber, JRW has ensured a longer operating life for CV joints in heavy construction equipment and off-road vehicles. Now with free-prototyping, Jefferson Rubber is the market standard for custom-injected molded rubber solutions. Jefferson’s continued commitment to quality products is rivaled only by the company’s devotion to customer needs.
