Elastotec’s specialist solutions to the global mining industry
What we’re known for:
As an engineered component, your pulley lagging should last longer than the bearing and locking elements, so ours are engineered to perform.
Designed to increase mine site production, our wear panels are engineered to increase conveyor operational time, improve safety and be easy to install.
What we also do:
In conjunction with industry experts, Elastotec has developed sophisticated tools to help select the correct lagging solution for optimum performance in each application.
Two dedicated manufacturing plants equipped with state-of-the-art equipment so we can guarantee the quality and you can expect high-performance and reliability.
Using an operational feedback model to collect data from our installations, we engineer refinements into our products, staying ahead of the market and exceeding expectations.
An important step in maximising performance, we offer a range of training packages including installation, application, engineering and selection.

Elastotec’s mining solutions at work
Oyu Tolgoi is a large copper mine that has both open-cut and underground operations and has been operating since 2013. The mine is jointly owned by the Mongolian government and Rio Tinto and is located in the South Gobi Desert. Once fully operational, the mine is expected to produce 450,000 tonnes of copper annually.
Sugar Australia operates a specialised food-grade bulk refined sugar vessel, MV “Pioneer”. Elastotec developed a white ceramic lagging made from FDA materials approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for handling sugar on a ship-loading conveyor drive pulley.
In early 2012 Port Kembla Coal Terminal (PKCT) identified a need to refurbish the drive pulleys on their two Stacker Reclaimer units. Included in this refurbishment was replacement of the lagging.
Elastotec Magnefast Ceramic Wear Panels were chosen for the application in this colliery transfer chute as the use of studded wear panels would have been very difficult and time consuming to install.
