23 May 2017 Dry Bulk | Engineering & Equipment NEWLY IMPROVED CERAMIC TILE CORRECTS BELT SLIPPAGE AND PREMATURE WEAR. ASGCO® has added a Semi-CeramicTM Pulley Lagging to its pulley lagging product line, featuring 40% coverage. The addition of this Semi-Ceramic Lagging allows the company to offer a semi-ceramic product range to provide customers with a choice between full ceramic coverage with its Arrowhead® Ceramic Pulley Lagging for high tension drive pulleys, as well as less than full ceramic coverage with its new Semi-CeramicTM Lagging for smaller pulleys, non-drive pulleys and bend pulleys. ASGCO®’s Semi-Ceramic Pulley Lagging provides the solution when conventional rubber lagging fails to correct belt slippage and wears prematurely. The ceramic tiles are embedded in rubber on all sides and separated by a horizontal groove for dispelling water and dirt. ASGCO®’s pre-chemical backing provides an exceptional bond for rubber-to-metal applications. ASGCO®’s Semi-CeramicTM Lagging is supplied in 15 inch (385MM) wide X 32.81 foot (10M) rolls for full versatility, so customers can use only what is needed. FEATURES AND BENEFITS newly improved ceramic tile — provides robust performance in dry, wet, or muddy applications;high grade — aluminium oxide ceramic;bonding strength — that is superior to others, due to 3mm of ASGCO®’s neoprene compound vulcanized into bottom-side of the lagging;pre-chemical backing — for ease of installation; increased productivity — by delivering increased traction between the conveyor belt and pulley, allowing for lower belt tension than with rubber lagging;reduced downtime — on non-drive pulleys, where pulley change-out due to excessive wear is difficult; androunded corners — allow for better adhesion between the rubber and the tile.
