HEAT RESISTANT TEXTILES &
TUFF TEMP HiTemp Fabricated Wear Pads
In developing these products, our Sales Engineers will first work with you to determine a suitable high temperature resistant product for your particular application (based upon estimated working conditions of temperature, abrasion, etc.). Next, we will listen to you to get all of your particular specifications (e.g. pad dimensions, stiffness, thickness, etc.). Once we receive your specifications, our trained technicians will then develop working prototypes for your review. Upon your approval, die cuts will be made to ensure total consistency and strict adherence to your particular tolerances.
All of our wear pads will be fabricated from either our line of mechanically enhanced para-aramid synthetic fiber products, or our HiTemp line of PBI-based materials. As previously noted, the selection of the appropriate base material for the wear pad is dependent upon the conditions of your particular hot end application. For example, those applications with a significant amount of abrasion and cutting action, such as scoop liner pads on a glass ribbon machine, would require a tougher, more wear resistant pad material. Our "wear pads" are ideal for this. Those pad applications that have significantly more temperature exposure, such as vacuum pads used in the forming section of a pressware plant, may be better served by our higher heat resistant HiTemp pads. Either way, our TUFF TEMP and HiTemp fabricated pads will possess the same superior temperature and wear resistant performance properties as our regular tape, tubing and conveyor belting products.
Both TUFF TEMP and HiTemp fabricated wear pads may also be treated with one of our value-added finishing treatments, known as
Wear Gard, Wear Gard
Plus, and Special Finish Impregnation. These unique treatments impart enhanced cut and abrasion resistance to the pad material, as well as added stiffness. All of our treatments are completely safe for your plant
Our fabricated wear pads are used in the hot end of virtually every segment of the glass industry. Our customers' pad applications include, but are not limited to, the following:
In head to head testing, our Special Finish HiTemp material has shown longer wear life than many carbon carbon composite materials.
Our para-aramid synthetic fiber pads are also used extensively within aluminum extrusion plants to help convey, handle and move hot aluminium extrusion profiles. Please visit our section on the aluminum extrusion industry to see how our pads can help benefit you.
Our Sales Engineers are available at your disposal. Please feel free to contact us at your convenience to discuss your particular hot end applications. It is our pleasure to provide you with sample pads for testing and evaluating.
