ArmorPIPE® Engineered Ceramic Segments are ceramics, bonded in rubber that are designed to combine the abrasion resistant properties of ceramic along with the energy absorbing properties of modern elastomers, for your pipe lining. Utilising proprietary surface treatments, the bond between the ceramic and the elastomer is greater than the tensile strength of the latter (circa 27580 kpa/4000 psi).
Unlike traditional ceramic tiles that become brittle as they wear, crack and then disbond, the ArmorPIPE® Engineered Ceramic Segments wear down entirely over time; resulting in a very cost effective and reliable solution for high tonnage large diameter pipe services. These flexible elastomers provide superior protection from impact and thermal cycling, increasing the duration of your system life and time intervals between each shutdown.
- High levels of abrasion resistance without the brittleness typically associated with traditional ceramics
- Flexible elastomers provide protection from impact and thermal cycling
- Custom blended elastomers are available to provide resistance to a variety of chemicals including acids, alkalies and hydrocarbons
