Ceramic raw materials (quartz, feldspar, clay) are quite abrasive during processing on one hand, and extremely sticky on the other. The molds suffer among the mostt! Metallic wear protection is unwelcome for certain areas because it causes discoloration of some expensive decorative materials (smalts). Agitators and mixers are literally crushed by the dynamic kneading movements. High maintenance cost and reduced equipment life-time are the consequences.
We have a solution for problems with wear in ceramics / tile production! Scope of application: Mixer linings Mixing tools Non-stick form coatings Soak pit coatings Feeding chutes Silo linings Palletizing grippers MetaLine - Technical solutions in detail METALINE SERIES 700 MetaLine Series 700 coatings withstand gliding, sliding and impact-causing stress. Anti-adhesion features minimize unwanted sticking. Hard coats are blast off or at least start to break due to the elasticity of the rubber-like skin when pressure is applied. Forces caused by area pressure are initially stored or compensated and released again when the stress ceases. Thus mixer wear can be minimized.
MetaLine Series 700 – MetaLine Series 700 coatings withstand sliding, abrasive and impacting loads. Anti-adhesive properties minimize buildup. Operational pressure forces create a wave-like movement in the elastic skin. Hard, sticky residues on top detach – or at least start to crack – due to this artificial "shake off process"! Surface pressure is first absorbed and then released again when the load clears up. Wear on mixers can thus be minimized.
