Impact and abrasion affect the performance of a liner system differently. Rubber and ceramic provide various individual benefits, but their combination is critical.
Ideal Ceramic Scenario
Ceramics perform best when the physical structure remains in compression and it is least exposed to sheering stress. In most lining systems, these stresses are at their highest when ceramic is exposed to a 45-degree impact. A sliding abrasion situation with a 15-degree impact or below is ideal.
Why Include Rubber?
Rubber absorbs energy as the impact from material is transferred from the embedded ceramic. The quality, type and resilience of rubber is important because it affects the overall performance of the Rubber-Ceramic system when exposed to impact.
The Perfect Combination
Our highly customizable Rubber-Ceramic Liners can be incorporated into Chute Liners, Screens, Haul Truck Liners, Canoe Liners and Impact Bars.
