WHAT CAN ELASTOMERS DO ?
All Mining Applications including Lining of Chutes, Coupling Rubbers, Scrapers & Wear Strips, Engine Mounts and Couplings for Marine, Automotive and Industrial Applications, Conveyor Rolls, Elevator Wheels, Nylon Bushes, Wheels and Rollers, Wheels and Castors Re-moulded, Gaskets and Seals, Sheet, Tube, Rod and Strips, Boat Rollers,Suspension Bushes, Truck Parts.
Superior cost advantage and performance has led to many instances of replacing metal, rubber, wood and plastic with polyurethane elastomers. Some applications are shown in the following table.
|Automotive||Engine mounts, bearings, bushes, flexible couplings.|
|Building & Constructions||Moulds for concrete, gate seals, concrete pump ports.|
|Electrical||Encapsulation, insulation, potting, cable joining.|
|Engineered components||Gears, sprockets, wire guides, rail draft gear, stripper plates, press brake pads, textile yarn guides, cutting boards, business machine belts, couplings, sound deadening, anti-vibration.|
|Food||Chute lining, grain buckets.|
|Mining||Bucket liners, conveyor rollers, scraper blades, floatation cell impellers, pump linings, grading screens, lined pipes, cross-over pads.|
|Oil, Chemical and Marine||Bushings, bearings, hydrocyclones, engine mounts and couplings, pipeline pigs and scrapers, fenders, valve seats.|
|Rollers||Board rollers, nip rollers, metal forming, woodworking, printing, conveyor, can coating, paper mill.|
|Seals and Gaskets||Pneumatic and oil seals, diaphragms.|
|Wheel and Tyres||Fork-lift tyres, heavy duty castor wheels, escalator wheels, roller skate wheels, roller blade wheels.|
