Anti-abrasion rubber cloths are known for their impact resistance, their flexibility and their soundproofing properties. They are often used to process raw materials.

The characterisation of rubber solutions is frequently based on thickness and hardness. While important, these two criteria are not sufficient to determine the quality of an anti-abrasion rubber cloth. Tear and abrasion resistance and elasticity are also important properties, not to mention the general screening conditions such as particle size, height and angle of descent, etc. The GIRON teams can offer valuable advice to determine the best solution for your screening facilities.

With their strong extension capacity, anti-abrasion rubber cloths must be reinforced with one or several textile folds to ensure maintenance of the mesh but also good mechanical resistance to tension, whether mounted in lateral tension (perpendicular to the conveying direction of the products), or longitudinal tension (parallel to the conveying direction of the products).

To be tensioned, these cloths are made with tension hooks. These are steel sheets bent at an angle adapted to the different screens. The hooks are connected to the plastic screening surface by a system of bolts, for example.

To use a cloth, this must be properly tensioned. Also, it must follow a curve defined by the screen manufacturers. The thicker the cloth, the more pronounced the curve to obtain good support. To ensure better positioning of the cloth on the frame, solid areas are provided on the cloth at each transverse support.

Anti-abrasion rubber technology can be adapted through several mounting options: tensioned cloth on frame and metallic reinforcement, or in the form of modular blocks.

GIRON has a wide range of square, rectangular or round meshes (W) to match the needs of its customers.
