Why Rubber Lining?

Tuesday, August 6 - 2019

When it comes to choosing equipment linings, there are many different factors to consider. Although the ultimate goal is to protect equipment, not all linings offer the same results. To help you in your decision process, here are seven reasons why you should consider rubber linings:

1. Extends the life of your equipment.

Replacement costs of equipment versus maintenance of existing assets using protective rubber linings is basic math. Rubber linings reduce significant capital investments and decrease the risks of unexpected downtime.

2. Protects equipment.

Rubber linings defend against corrosion, abrasion, chemicals, acids, alkalis, slurries, and aggregates.

3. Less expensive than ceramic.

Rubber is a cost-effective solution that doesn’t compromise on results.

4.Superior wear resistance.

Rubber is a wise choice that offers longer life.

5. Reduces noise and vibration.

6. Predictable wear cycle.

Rubber linings allow you to plan your maintenance ahead of time.

7. Easily repaired or patched.

It is not necessary to re-line the entire asset.
