Plastics For Mining Industry
Plastics are used in the mining industry for a variety of applications , mainly for handling and transport of bulk materials. Plastics are excellent for railcar and truck liners as well as sheaves, gears and other wear-resistant components. Such materials must work in harsh environments while constantly moving and aggregating bulk materials.
Due to their wear-resistance, impact-resistance and thermal mitigation properties, plastics are suitable for mining equipments. Additionally, their corrosion and water resistance helps them to perform better in sifting, cutting, washing, and transport than metal parts.
