Wear-resistant compounds protect equipment from abrasion

Wear Guard epoxy putties from Devcon extend the service life and simplify maintenance of processing equipment by protecting it from the ravages of abrasion. Designed not to run, drip or sag when used on vertical or overhead surfaces, these alumina ceramic bead-filled epoxy coatings and linings cure rapidly at room temperature and are suitable for exhausters, pulverizers, ash-handling systems, cyclones, pipe elbows, fans and housings, screens, chutes, screw conveyors, slurry pumps, etc. They are formulated for use in mining and other high-abrasion industries.
