Abrasiplate™-Rubber Faced Plate

Versatile Rubber Covered Steel Sheet- Protect it with Rubber®

When steel meets steel or when steel is unprotected against friction, abrasion, corrosion, impact or chemical attack, the result is costly repair or replacement and profit reducing down time. A rubber face on the steel surface can prevent this damage. We call it Abrasiplate™. Tests have shown that rubber faced plate has an abrasion wear time up to 10 times longer than unprotected metals. Abrasiplate™ or “rubber-faced plate” is not simply a piece of sheet rubber glued to metal (like many companies offer). Our vulcanization process of specially formulated rubber compound results in a blister-free, virtually unbreakable bond between rubber and metal.

Abrasiplate™ Features:

  • Abrasiplate™ kept in-stock is 16 ga. steel with custom formulated 60 durometer SBR rubber. Overall thicknesses of 1/4″, 1/2″, 3/4″, and 1″ standard sizes are 48″ wide x 96″, 120″ or 144″ long, but most any size can be produced.
  • Abrasiplate™ can be ordered up to 9″ overall thickness and up to 90″ wide x 180″ long.
  • Metal backing thickness can be from 20 ga. up to 1″ and can be steel, aluminum, expanded metal or stainless steel.
  • Abrasiplate™ can be punched, drilled, sawed, sheared, rolled, shaped or formed as needed.
  • Abrasiplate™ can be applied over existing surfaces or fabricated alone to meet your specs. It can be bolted, screwed, riveted, or tack welded in place.

A few industries where ABRASIPLATE™ can make an impact on your maintenance costs:

  • Sand, Gravel and Rock Operations- Hoppers, chutes, cones, and troughs may be lined for longer life and less downtime. Rubber covered perforated plates serve as excellent vibrating screens.
  • Sand and Grit Blasting- Used to line blast machines or entire rooms to protect against long term effects of grit blasting. Can be fastened directly to the walls of existing rooms.
  • Forklift Clamps and Forks- Specially patterned for use as clamp pads to grip boxes or drums with less clamping pressure. Forks are covered for various reasons including damage-free pick up of boats and ‘nick free’ handling of specially coated pipe.
  • Power Plants- Lining chutes and hoppers to prolong the life of material handling systems in coal fired operations and to reduce downtime and maintenance.
  • Brick or Block Plants- Rubber faced clamp pads on machinery effectively move and pick up blocks or bricks without damaging the product surface.
  • Cyclones and Dust Collecting Systems- To prevent premature wear of cyclones in high velocity airflow areas and repairing existing equipment.
  • Grain Handling- Spouts, hoppers, elbows and transition can be lined with rubber for increased life of the part and reduced grain breakage.

    Take Their Word For It

    It is hard to beat from the aspect of economy, abrasion resistance, lining integrity, and high temperature resistance. [Sioux Rubber] has done an excellent job of installing and testing rubber liners that we have used in our scrubbers and reactors…delivery times are accurate… and the quality of the job is top notch.

Installation

When installing Abrasiplate™, care must be taken so that the edges of the plate are not subjected to the flow of the abrasive material. But joints rather than lap joints should be used. Rubber caulking may be used to seal joints.

Occasionally the edge of the rubber covered steel sheet will be close enough to wear area so that a small amount of abrasive material strikes the edge of the plate. This small amount of material is insignificant as far as wear is concerned but may damage the rubber to steel bond and allow material to work its way between the rubber and steel. This will happen only when the abrasive material strikes against the unprotected edge of the plate. To prevent this, a steel bar may be butted against the leading edge of the rubber covered steel sheet.
