Abrasion Resistant Liners
A variety of abrasion resistant liners are available from Tapco Inc. Our selection includes ultra high molecular weight (UHMW) sheets and Tapco-Thane sheeting and roll stock. Tapco-Thane is a polyurethane elastomer that is molded into sheeting for material handling applications. It offers exceptional abrasion resistance and is ideal for use as chute liners for handling grain, gravel, wood chips, and more. Tapco Inc. has been in business since the early 1970's. We offer a wide variety of elevator buckets, drag flights, and hanger bearings. Our company continuously researches new technologies to better serve our customers. Our goal is to provide products and service of the highest value at the lowest price.
UHMW sheeting is used for a wide variety of applications such as bin liners, chute liners, gaskets, wear strips, guide plates, hopper liners, chain guides, conveyor liners. It offers high impact strength to stand up to repeated impacts. The sheeting also has a super slippery surface that prevents bulk materials from caking or bridging.
This sheeting is odour and taste free, non-corrosive, and is FDA and USDA approved. It is also chemically inert, and will not be affected by corrosive environments. In fact, the sheeting will resist all alkalis and acids (except for concentrated nitric and sulfuric).
Tapco-Thane is available in standard and hi-rebound varieties. The benefits of standard Tapco-Thane sheeting include the high wear to cost ratio, wide selection of sizes, and many options for backing. Some of the backing types available include fabric back, slotted metal back, and embedded ceramic chip expanded metal back. Hi-rebound Tapco-Thane sheeting offers reduced fire hazard, reduced hydrolysis problems, and increased rebound.
