Ceramic Lagging

KOLAG Ceramic Lagging is a ceramic embedded rubber strip lagging. The ceramic tiles are designed with a dimple profile to ensure there is minimal slippage between the belt and drive pulley. It is especially suitable for wet or muddy applications where slippage can be a problem. The rough ceramic face produces an excellent coefficient of friction between the conveyor belt and the pulley. In some cases this can be up to two times the friction ratio that can be generated
with conventional rubber lagging.

The ceramics also are much more wear resistant than conventional rubber lining, and consequently it will be longer before replacement becomes necessary.
The unique “arrow-boss” design, produces a ceramic lagging which is on an embossed rubber pattern. This achieves the maximum water shedding benefits of a conventional rubber lagging, together with the intrinsic benefits of the added ceramics.

The vertical radial troughs in the design incorporate the latest technology derived from formula one racing car tyres, which dictates that the most efficient water shedding pattern is effected by using vortical radial grooves. KOLAG comes with a buffed finish or optional bonding layer, to enable it to be cold bonded on site. The benefits of reduced belt slippage will also result in improved conveyor belt life.
