Storage recommendations

How to store lagging:

  • Stock usage based on a first-in first-out method (FIFO).
  • The storage room for lagging must be cool, dry and dust-free.
  • Avoid storage places near sources of ozone generating equipment.
  • Do not store outside.
  • Avoid storage in direct sunlight and strong artificial light as UV light can damage the products and may lead to a premature ageing.
  • Under no circumstances should fuels, lubricants, acids, disinfectants, solvents or other chemicals be stored in the same storage area.
  • Keep the storage place clean. Protect the material from dust, water etc. with suitable coverings.
  • Allow 24 hours before use when lagging is removed from cold storage.

Shelf life

DIRECT BOND LAGGING AND WEAR PANELS
  • Stored <25°C
COLD BONDING LAGGING AND WEAR PANELS
  • Stored <25°C 3 years shelf life
  • Light buffing of bonding surfaces is recommended if over 4 months from production date
HOT VULCANISED LAGGING AND WEAR PANELS
  • <7°C and away from UV and ozone generating equipment 12 months
ADHESIVES AND PRIMERS
  • Store in flammable goods cabinet
  • Stored <25°C
  • Shelf life:
    • Primers 2 years
    • Cold bonding adhesive 2 years
    • Hot vulcanising adhesive 4 months
    • Direct bond adhesive 2 years

Products stored under the above conditions for longer periods of time than recommended need to be re-tested for adhesion before being used. If any doubts on storage recommendations, contact Elastotec.
