Rubber Lagging

Rubber pulley lagging refers to the layer of rubber that is bonded to the shell of a conveyor pulley. Its purpose is to protect the shell of the pulley from damage, increase friction with the conveyor belt and dispense water off the pulley.

There are several different types of pulley lagging such as plain or grooved rubber lagging and ceramic lagging, which each have different variations, specifications and purposes.



Engineered to provide a long service life

Other materials can be used for pulley lagging, but rubber is the most commonly used material due to its abrasion resistance and high coefficient of friction. It is engineered to be highly elastic and wear resistance, providing a long service life for your system.

KOLAG Pulley Lagging Rubber

FLEX-LAG® Rubber
FLEXCO® has developed a rubber pulley lagging product that improves water-shedding, helps eliminate belt slippage and boosts productivity. Their products can also be installed without removing the KOLAG strips of pulley lagging rubber is especially suited to in-situ work.

They are produced in a unique “arrowboss” pattern for superior grip, with radial lines and a grooved pattern for superior water shedding. They have a buffed finish for fine tolerances of up to +/- 0.25mm, or an optional bonding layer.

It is easily applied by cutting lengths off a roll, which reduces wastage. It’s also available in fire-resistant and antistatic (FRAS) compounds for use in underground mines.

FLEX-LAG® Weld On™
The FLEX-LAG® Weld On™ is available in ceramic and rubber pulley lagging for drive and non-drive pulleys. It is pre-cut to standard OEM pulley widths for fast installation.

The patented gear tooth design minimises problems associated with vibration, cleaner chatter and overall belt cleaner compatibility. The gear tooth design’s greatest feature is no gutters; equating to easy segment installation that can be undertaken on site.

The FLEX-LAG® Weld On™ ceramic pulley lagging features a high coefficient of friction. The weld on rubber provides a high durometer rubber for improved water-shedding characteristics and abrasion resistance.
