Why use Polyurethane Lagging?

Mining companies

  • Kind to conveyor belt – abrasion resistant but does not transfer wear to belt cover
  • Longer Service Life than rubber lagging
  • Resists build up on non drive pulleys
  • Reduces operating costs
  • Elastotec developed application proceedure and “Approved Applicators” ensures a reliable result

Pulley manufacturers and refurbishment companies, conveyor maintenance companies

  • Choice of Hot Vulcanised or Cold Vulcanised bonding systems
  • Easy to apply (supplied in 250mm wide strips and rolls)
  • Elastotec developed application procedure with training supplied to “Approved Applicators”
  • Can be moulded with your company logo

Features & Benefits

Highly Abrasion Resistant PU Prevents wear on pulley shell. Positive release and dirt shedding
Precision moulded strip Optimum PU properties
Supplied in strip form 250mm wide Easy to install
Strips packed in plastic film Preserves buffed bonding layer ready for application
Coloured TPU inserts Blue for standard PU.
Low co-efficient of friction Difficult to stick to – resists build up – Kind to belt cover.
