Rubber is often the ideal material to resist impact and abrasion damage in minerals handling equipment. Abrasion resistance is many times that of bare mild steel and the resilience of rubber returns impact energy to the material, minimising degradation, noise and damage.
Hard and sharp materials and are best handled by 60 Shore hardness rubber and wet and fine materials (especially <10 mm) by softer 40 Shore.
Rubber linings are usually cold bonded in place using special adhesives and primers. MHP has great experience in this process to ensure the security of the lining, even under quarry conditions.
