Cast Polyurethane Products for Mining and Aggregate

Mining and Aggregate extraction are historically known to be some of the harshest industries out there. Equipment failures and rapid declines in performance seem imminent when machinery is exposed to mineral dusts, high impacts, and repeated abrasion every day. For an industry this tough, the right material choice can make a world of difference in performance and efficiency.

Polyurethane products can provide an ideal solution for these harsh operating conditions. The unique physical properties of polyurethane products can reduce regular wear and tear on equipment to increase runtime, support heavy loads without distortion, and protect important parts and belting that are so vital to mining equipment performance.

Cast polyurethane products are perfectly suited for the Mining and Aggregate industry, where severe environmental conditions, heavy loads and highly abrasive applications put constant wear on parts and equipment. Discover how this versatile elastomer allows PSI Urethanes to provide you with the ideal polyurethane products for mining and aggregate applications like extraction, transportation, and processing.

Benefits of Polyurethane Products for Mining and Aggregate

The aggregate and mining sectors are notorious for their damaging effects on equipment, causing frequent machine breakdowns and reduced productivity. This comes from the abrasive mineral particles and combustible dusts that are unavoidable byproducts of mining and aggregate processes.

Despite the harsh operating environment, PSI Urethanes’ polyurethane products have been proven to increase operational performance in mining and aggregate applications. Explore how PSI Urethanes' polyurethane products not only weather the abrasive mineral particles and combustible dust but elevate operational performance in these demanding applications.

Polyurethane products boast many excellent physical properties that can reduce daily wear on mining and aggregate equipment.

Some of the physical properties of polyurethane products that make them ideal for mining and aggregate extraction include:

  • Impact Resistance: Withstand heavy impacts, ensuring equipment durability in the face of harsh conditions.
  • UV Stabilization: Guard against the damaging effects of prolonged exposure to sunlight, a common challenge in outdoor mining operations.
  • Weather, Dirt, Dust, and Debris Resistance: Maintain operational efficiency by resisting the adverse effects of environmental elements.
  • High Load Bearing: Support heavy loads without distortion, contributing to the longevity of mining equipment.
  • Abrasion Resistance: Defy daily wear and tear, extending the life cycle of components subjected to abrasive environments.
  • Solvent and Chemical Resistance: Protect against corrosive substances, ensuring the integrity of equipment in chemically challenging mining processes.

These properties and more are what make polyurethane products the most versatile and viable upgrade for metal, plastic, and rubber components for the mining and aggregate industry. To discover the full extent of the benefits of polyurethane products, you can learn more here:

Cost Effective Polyurethane Products for the Mining Industry

Polyurethane products not only outperform metal, plastic, and rubber counterparts but also prove to be more cost-effective across the board.

The superior longevity of polyurethane products reduces the need for frequent replacements, which contributes to long-term cost savings.

Furthermore, polyurethane products can be seamlessly bonded to existing components, serving as protective liners that extend the overall lifespan of mining machinery.

In highly abrasive mining and aggregate extraction applications, dual durometer polyurethane products such as liners can act as wear indicators for containers and other equipment. As the top layer of polyurethane thins with wear, the layer beneath will begin to show through- visually signaling to you that it’s time to replace your liners with a new round of polyurethane products. Dual durometer polyurethane products are highly effective tools to stick to maintenance schedules in order to ensure maximum efficiency of your machinery.

Mining and Aggregate Applications for Polyurethane Products

Daily operations in the Mining and Aggregate industry involve high impacts, abrasion and corrosive materials that can damage heavy duty equipment. PSI Urethanes polyurethane sheeting and custom parts superior durability helps to reduce day-to-day wear seen in these applications.
