Training course


Designed for Sales and Engineering staff and Maintenance and Reliability staff at mines.
Lagging Application Training


This course is for Elastotec Lagging Partners and maintenance and reliability staff at the mines. It is designed to equip your team with tools to select and specify pulley lagging that is engineered to provide the optimum service life for both lagging and conveyor belt.

Course Programme

1) Why is pulley lagging used?
2) Consequences of lagging failure
  • Catastrophic failures
  • Insufficient service life
  • Costs associated for end user
3) Modes of failure
  • Application failure
  • Product design and manufacturing failure
  • Incorrect product specification
4) Identifying potential lagging performance improvement beyond end user expectations
  • Digging deeper, asking the right questions
  • Identifying potential lagging performance improvement beyond end user expectations
5) Pulley lagging, an engineered component
  • Lagging to be considered as an engineered component to last as long as the mechanical pulley components – no longer a consumable item.
  • Required service life (outdoor ageing)
  • Shear stresses
  • Pulley position in conveyor
  • Carryback and buildup
  • Contact with fluids
  • Operating temperatures
6) Approved applicator programme
  • Warranty
  • Product innovation
  • Case studies
  • Lagging Analyst
  • Lagging selector
7) Lagging recommendations for different applications and pulley positions
