arcotuff

Arcotuff is a type of wear-resistant material known for its toughness and durability in high-wear applications.

Arcotuff is designed to extend the service life of equipment exposed to abrasive and erosive wear environments, reducing maintenance downtime and replacement costs. It represents a balance between hardness, toughness, and wear resistance, making it a preferred choice in demanding industrial applications.

TYPICAL APPLICATIONS WHERE ARCOTUFF CERAMICS ARE CURRENTLY BEING UTILISED:
Chutes, Impact Plates, Reclaimers, Hoppers, Piping, Skirt Liners, Cyclones.

Arcotuff 92 is our general-purpose ceramic comprising of 92% Alumina, and is suitable for high abrasion and medium impact applications such as transfer chutes. Arcotuff 92 can also be supplied as rubber or steel-backed liners allowing for easy installation and removal. Arcotuff can be supplied as a direct bond application.

Arcotuff 95 is a 95% Alumina ceramic and is the next step up in abrasion wear protection when compared to Arcotuff 92. Ideally suited to very high abrasion and medium impact due to having a higher hardness when compared to a 92% ceramic product. Arcotuff 95 is supplied has a rubber and steel bonded wear liners. Arcotuff can also be supplied direct bond on request.  

When you need to take radical action to help protect against high impact and extreme abrasion you need Arcotuff ZTA ceramic a combination of Alumina and Zirconium blended to offer up to 3 times the life of 92% ceramic material. The Arcotuff ZTA is perfectly suited in deflectors and impact plates.  

Silicon carbide (SiC), an important structural ceramic material, has been employed in industries for a long period. It can be successfully applied in practice as tribo-elements. In some cases, SiC ceramics are used in environments where lubricants cannot available.
