Features & Benefits
|Oil Resistant Rubber backing||Resists degradation in contact with oil|
|Oil Resistant Bonding System||Resists tile loss and debonding from the pulley shell|
|Hot Vulcanised Bonding||Rubber tear adhesion to the pulley|
|High Performance Al2O3 tiles||Resists wear and cracking|
|Rolls or strips to suit pulley face width||Convenient, reduced stock and lead time|
Aluminium Oxide Tile Specification
|Fracture Toughness (MPa.m1/2)||>4.5|
|Abrasion Resistance (ASTM G65)||<1.0 % Mass loss by abrasion|
The Elastotec OR FRAS pulley lagging exhibits good general oil resistance to common grain and vegetable based oils. Table 2 provides details of this oil resistance as well as a comparison with Natural Rubber & Styrene Butadiene Rubber. Elastotec OR FRAS lagging is not recommended for use with oils where volume swell exceeds 20%.

Elastotec OR FRAS can be supplied with either a Cold Vulcanised (CV) Bonding Layer or alternately a Hot Vulcanised (HV) Bonding Layer. For new pulleys or refurbished pulleys where the lagging will be done in a factory setting the HV Bonding is the preferred method as this provides a 100% rubber tear bond.
For pulleys that require lagging application in situ on the conveyor the CV Bonding system is the only option. It is important that the CV application is done using 100% Neoprene adhesive as this will have similar oil resistance to the OR FRAS lagging. The use of adhesives based on other polymers must be avoided as these may be prone to deterioration in contact with oil.
Rubber lagging available in:
|Thickness:||10,12,15 & 20 mm|
|Roll Length||6.5 m, 50 m and 85 m.|
|Roll Width||250 mm|
OR FRAS is also available on all the Elastotec Ceramic lagging products.
