New ceramic lagging products from Flexco
Conveyor belt specialist introduces Flex-Lag Medium ceramic pulley lagging and Flex-Lag Adhesives
FLEXCO, the belt conveyor specialists based in Downers Grove, Illinois, have introduced their new Flex-Lag Medium ceramic pulley lagging and Flex-Lag Adhesives.
The new Medium ceramic pulley lagging features 39% tile coverage, which complements the company’s existing Full and Diamond ceramic laggings, which provide 80% and 15% coverage, respectively, while Flex-Lag Adhesives, with their two-part cold-bond system, provide the prefect bonding system to complete the lagging installation.
Flex-Lag Medium ceramic pulley lagging can be utilized in dry, wet or muddy applications where slippage can occur, and offers the prolonged wear life of ceramic tiles at an affordable cost. Horizontal grooves in the lagging trap and deflect water/debris, while the molded ceramic buttons grip the belt’s underside for positive traction without slippage.
The lagging comes in strip widths ranging from 35in (880mm) to 101in (2,560mm), to match pulley face widths, or 18in (450mm) to 84in (2,100mm), to match belt widths, while convenient sizes help eliminate waste during installation. The lagging works with pulley diameters in excess of 12.6in (320mm) and is also available in SBR or FRAS (fire-resistant anti-static) rubber.
Flex-Lag Adhesives provide the ideal bond for rubber-to-rubber and rubber-to-metal installations. The adhesive and activator mix is based on a 1:1 can-to-bottle ratio to help with simplified ordering, stocking and preparation for installation. In addition, Flex-Lag Adhesives are environmentally friendly, comprising a polychloroprene rubber in a solvent base that is free of chlorinated hydrocarbons (CFCs).
To help with specification, Flexco have enhanced their online Lagging Calculator to include Flex-Lag Adhesives. By selecting the lagging type and entering the pulley diameter, face width and number of pulleys, the calculator will indicate how many rolls/strips of the selected lagging are required, as well as the quantity of adhesive, activator, and primer needed to complete the installation.
