Ceracoat and Derincoat are wear resistant composites with high compressive strength and wear resistant properties. Both of these comprise of hard aggregates, binders and fibres that are mixed together with prefixed measures of water in a vam mixer to form a high strength compound. The final product thus obtained can be cast or trowelled on to a base plate on which expanded wire mesh has been fixed in position with anchors, or can be spun into pipes / bends and fittings.
These composites are extensively used in the protection of equipment prone to severe wear and tear in core sector industries, and are available as Ceracoat for low temperature applications (up to 400ºC) and Derincoat for high temperature applications (up to 800ºC).
In power, steel, aluminium, and cement sectors, abrasive materials are pneumatically or hydraulically conveyed through pipelines resulting in heavy wear and tear. This necessitates the use of a protective liner to prevent wear and enhance the life of equipment. The advantage of using Ceracoat and Derincoat liners is that it provides a monolithic lined surface without any edge effects and thus ensures a smooth and uninterrupted flow of material.
