Lining and Fabricated Products The Linatex® rubber range is extremely versatile and suitable as protective lining for a variety of surfaces to minimise wear and corrosion of the base structure. Typical lining applications include: • Chute lining • Pipe lining • Vessel lining • Hose construction In addition to it’s versatility, Linatex® rubber products are lighter and more flexible than other wear liner materials such as steel and ceramics. This aids with installation, that can be completed at one of our many service centres or on site. Linatex® rubber can be bonded quickly and permanently...

What Makes Linatex® Premium Rubber Better? Natural rubber is an outstanding abrasion resistant material, particularly for handling slurries. The inherent properties of strength, resilience and cut resistance have a direct effect on wear performance. Wear properties are at their best straight from the tree. The more work that is put into mixing the rubber, the more these properties are destroyed by the shearing and the breaking up of the long molecular chains. Conventional dry processing is based on shearing the rubber during mixing. This reduces the average molecular weight distribution and...

Our commitment to our customers is simple - we aim to provide best-in-field performance and lowest cost of ownership. We do this by using the best quality natural rubber and by processing it with leading edge technology. Technology Benefits Linatex natural rubbers demonstrate exceptional performance over time in both wet and dry applications. The processing of natural rubber from natural latex encompasses two distinct operations. The compounding and coagulation of the latex into uncured rubber crepe, and the pressing and curing of the uncured rubber into finished sheets. The charts below...

Selecting the Appropriate Rubber To select the most appropriate compound for an application, many factors need to be taken into account. Understanding the following factors is critical to making the right selection: Particle Size and Weight In order to achieve the best possible operating economy and the longest service life, it is usual to increase rubber thickness within certain limits to cope with larger and heavier particles. Impact of particles from increasing height also requires increased rubber thickness to absorb compressive forces. As the particle hits the surface, the rubber...

Chemical Environment The temperature of the application in which the rubber will be used is important. The temperature limits of Linatex® rubber compounds vary. For example, natural rubbers are generally not recommended in applications above 70°C/158°F whereas synthetic , rubber compounds such as Linagard® BB and Linagard® NBR can be used in applications where temperatures exceed 100°C/212°F . Different rubber compounds exhibit varying degrees of resistance to chemicals. Natural rubber, for example, is unsuitable for use in contact with hydrocarbons. In this situation, Linagard® rubber is...
