The use of effective crusher backing compounds and release agents is critical to enhancing the life of crushing equipment used in the quarrying and mining industry. Impact and shock vibrations can cause significant damage when in service unless the right compound is used. One company has an impressive track record in this area and its products are recommended by many of the major crusher manufacturers.
In some parts of Europe changes in climate have seen winter temperatures plummeting to all time lows and protecting equipment has become more challenging for maintenance personnel. In response to this, ITW Korroflex developed a crusher backing compound that is enabling quarries to continue crushing problem-free. Many users in areas of Northern Europe and Russia have experienced benefits from using Korrobond 90 because it cures and performs well at very low ambient temperatures.
The product is a polyurethane-based crusher backing product and when cured produces a tough flexible backing. It requires no pre-heating and pours at temperatures as low as 32 deg F (0 deg C). It is a solvent-free product, gives good compressive and flexural strength, minimal shrinkage and will provide the same impact strength as white metal. It can be applied by personnel with the minimum of training and is designed to be used in both cone and gyratory crushers.
ITW Korroflex is part of a major global chemicals company. It specialises in the design and manufacture of epoxy and polyurethane crusher backing compounds used in cone crushing machines within the quarrying and mining industries worldwide. The company's European manufacturing site in Shannon has recently been audited by the BSI and awarded the ISO 14001:2004 certification.
