Flexco releases wear resistant urethane skirting

Flexco has released a new product to its line of mineral containment solutions, urethane skirting.

The urethane skirting is designed to increase productivity and decrease maintenance costs, providing a more wear-resistant material than typical rubber.

It can provide up to four times the wear life in similar applications and its lower coefficient of friction reduces strain on the system.

The skirting uses soft durometer (65A) urethane with high tear resistance to ensure a good seal and long belt life.

It features a 35° chamfer which eliminates the typical skirting break-in period. It is available in lengths of 7.6m to ensure easy transportation and works with the existing Flexco series of skirt clamps that offer simple serviceability: RMC1/PAL-Pak, Flex-Lok, and Flex-Seal.

The skirting is suitable for most applications: single direction or reversing belts, wet or dry conditions, old or new belts, vulcanised or mechanically spliced systems and is rated for temperatures from -30°C to 82°C.
