Trelleborg, Sweden – Trelleborg’s engineered products operation has launched RedFine+, an compounded, abrasion resistant sheet rubber for mining equipment preservation and wear protection.
Suitable for use in mining applications including pipe and spools, cyclone launders, vibrating screen under pans, and hoppers, RedFine+ delivers what Trelleborg described as "the best" European produced quality abrasion resistant rubber that can help minimise downtime and help lower total costs.
Colin Turnbull, General Manager of Miningwithin Trelleborg’s engineered products operation, says: “Across the mining industry, operational excellence and the ability to find new productivity gains and cost down initiatives are most important.
Mine downtime as a result of unscheduled maintenance repairs due to material failure directly results in costly downtime and reduced output. At Trelleborg, we are looking at ways we can improve abrasion resistance in our materials to ensure maximum throughput in processing plants is achieved.
The new RedFine+ sheet rubber features mechanical properties resulting in high performance in slurry transfer.
Made from a high performance rubber compound and manufactured with a bonding layer for optimum bonding strength, NR R397, RedFine+ is available in thicknesses from 3- to 25 millimeters.
