Rubber Lining

Protecting your plant and infrastructure from abrasion, chemicals, and heat will extend the lifetime of your asset, reduce maintenance and any downtime from damage.

RuDex Australia has extensive technical expertise to ensure that the right rubber lining or lagging solution is applied to your plant and infrastructure. Each project has unique requirements and we have the knowledge and practical expertise to ensure your plant and infrastructure will be well protected.

Our range of rubber linings encompasses applications where protection against abrasion, chemicals, heat and noise are required. We offer both the internal lining of chutes, vessels and pipes.

Lining Benefits

  • Excellent resistance to wet abrasion
  • Very high resilience
  • Remarkable cut and tear resistance
  • Low permanent set
  • Resistant to a wide range of chemicals
  • Excellent electrical resistance
  • Sound-absorption and vibration dampening properties

Our Experience

Our rubber lining experience includes protecting chutes, pipes, tanks, vessels and drum lagging. Check out the images below to see the type of work we undertake.

Hot or cold bonding?

There are two rubber lining processes:

Cold Bonding

Adhesive is used to bond wear resistant rubber sheets to steel work. It is a cost effective and fast process which can be conducted onsite.

Hot Bonding

Lining of vessels and pipes in raw rubber which is subsequently cured in an Autoclave. Vulcanising the raw rubber produces a seamless lining, eliminating adhesive joins associated with cold bonding.

Hot Bonding is recommended for chemical reaction vessels and abrasive slurry handling applications. It has superior durability when compared to cold bonding.

Autoclave for Hot Bonding

We have one of the largest autoclaves in this part of the world, ready to protect your plant and infrastructure!
