Elastotec is committed to the production and development of the highest quality, longest lasting pulley lagging and ceramic wear panels for the global mining industry.

In an industry where reliability is crucial and the unplanned down time can result in millions of dollars lost over a single day, our focus is on manufacturing pulley lagging and wear panel products that provide the “Longest Service Life” possible, ensuring that equipment is operational when required. It is this focus on product type, product performance and product manufacturing capability that provides the ‘Longer Service Life’ and reduced operating costs for mining companies that use Elastotec products worldwide.

Elastotec works closely with mining companies, manufacturers such as Sandvik Mining Systems, Nepean Mining and Joy Global, pulley refurbishment companies and our network of “Approved Applicators” to develop and refine our products based on operational feedback and technological advances. We collect data on lagging condition/failure from our international network of “Approved Applicators” each time they receive a pulley for refurbishment. This enables us to build a picture of the factors that reduce service life across lagging from many suppliers. With extensive experience in the latest elastomer technology, as well as bonding and adhesion of elastomers to various substrates, our engineering expertise is focused on developing lagging that eliminates or at least minimizes these failure modes.

– This is the basis of our “Engineered to Perform” statement.

Elastotec is committed to working closely with:

  • Mining companies to understand the problems they see with pulley lagging and wear panel performance.
  • Engineering and product development to provide solutions to these problems.
  • Customers and Approved Applicators to be a valued partner that provides solutions and helps them to differentiate their business.
  • Our suppliers to be a valued partner and to employ their expertise and resources.
  • Our staff to provide a safe, challenging and enjoyable work place where their unique abilities are fully utilised.
