Belzona has released a new epoxy-based material to, it says, resist the harshest abrasive environments typically found in the mining, cement, pulp & paper, biomass and other industries.
Belzona 1814 can be applied with a brush or a float to protect assets preventing metal loss and subsequent downtime, either on its own or as part of a system with alumina tiles, the company says.
Supplied in 30 kg units, compatible with mechanical mixers and boasting a long working life, Belzona 1814 is most suited for application to large assets, including chutes, hoppers and screw conveyors, according to Belzona.
Belzona R&D Manager, Jason Horn, said: “There was a need for a lasting abrasion protection system, which can be easily mixed in large volumes and applied over sizeable areas.
“Our second objective was to create a formulation with performance equal to our existent abrasion resistant materials, while keeping the costs down – the benefit of which could then be passed onto our end users.
“We believe, with Belzona 1814, we have produced a high performance and cost-effective system.”
