Hot Vulcanised lagging application involves the chemical cross-linking of five reactive layers during the autoclave curing process. To achieve the
In November 2017 a major iron ore port facility in the Pilbara decided to replace the ceramic lagging on a
Spare pulleys are held so that in the event that an operational pulley requires replacement this can be done quickly
Catastrophic lagging failure due to debonding occurred within two weeks of installation and operation of the pulley, resulting in a
Lagging can be of good quality and application can be correct, but lagging can still fail and does. Everything seems right but the lagging still doesn’t perform to expectations. So why does this happen? It’s because the lagging selection is not right for the application.
Elastotec extreme diamond rubber lagging is designed for drive and non drive pulleys that require extended service life.
At Elastotec, we engineer lagging solutions that keep conveyors running. Here are some causes of lagging failure.
Elastotec Direct Bond Ceramic Lagging - application system designed to improve adhesion consistency, reduce lead times, reduce glue wastage and labour time.
Based on composites of state-of-the-art ceramics, high strength, high resilience elastomer and mild steel and engineering thermoplastic (ETP) backing plates the Magnefast Wear Panels are precision vacuum moulded. This ensures a rubber tear bond is obtained between the rubber and the ceramic tiles and the rubber and the polymer backing plates. The 100% rubber tear bonding ensures that the ceramic tiles are retained in the panel even under the most arduous operating conditions.
Magnetic attachment -Force can be varied to suit the application.Use on chutes with tapered sides.

Elastotec has formulated a range of wear resistant ceramics. In house ability to test key ceramic properties including Vickers Hardness, Flex Crack Toughness and Wear Resistance has enabled Elastotec to optimise the ceramic performance and confirm these properties on each production batch. Elastotec wear panels can be made in a range of ceramic materials to suit a variety of end use applications.
Elastotec has a strong background and knowledge of elastomers. The elastomer is the lowest cost raw material in a ceramic wear panel but provides critical functions of retention of the ceramic tiles and cushioning from impact. Elastotec has developed a high strength ( >20 Mpa Tensile Strength), high resilience ( >60% resilience) elastomer with in built adhesion promoters. As with the ceramics Elastotec has in house testing capability for all these elastomer physical properties and can guarantee 100% rubber tear bonds between the ceramic and the polymer backing plate for each and every panel.
Elastotec has backing plates available in mild steel and also engineering thermoplastic (ETP). The ETP offers a number of unique features – reduced weight, corrosion resistance, increased impact resistance and reduced cost. For many years the automotive and appliance industries have been using engineering thermoplastics as metal replacements to reduce cost and increase performance. Elastotec is applying this technology to the wear panels it manufactures to provide the same benefits to the mining industry.
If you work in the mining industry, involved in conveyor maintenance, pulley manufacturing, conveyor design and conveyor maintenance, then, we would like to work with you to bring engineered pulley lagging solutions to the industry.
