No other industry demonstrates the durability of Tufflon® better than mining - where constant impact, abrasion, chemicals and extreme conditions wear away and corrode expensive equipment fast. There are many mining applications where the tough, elastic, durable and corrosion-resistant properties of Tufflon® are put to the test.
Tufflon-D60 is highly resistant to wear and corrosion and with its tenacious grip to almost any surface, will continue to protect expensive plant equipment for many years under extreme conditions. This includes extreme temperatures and exposure to heavy and abrasive loads of rock and gravel.
Tufflon-P90AS is the anti-static version of Tufflon-P90. When rocks or gravel are dropped onto conveyor belts or truck tippers, they create static electricity, which combined with any flammable substance creates a potential for fire or explosions. Tufflon-P90AS is ideal to create a safe anti-static environment and protect against such dangers.
Tufflon® has shown to be an excellent alternative to the common rubber sheets often used to protect dump trucks and scoops. Tufflon® has excellent tear strength to stand up against impact, cut, gouging and abrasion. Being flexible, it also provides a cushioning effect but softening the kinetic energy from impact - extending the life of valuable mining equipment.
