Adhesive bonding system, lining outlasts steel auger shaft

July 11, 2003
High-strength adhesive bonding system used with alumina ceramic tiles outlasted the steel shaft of an auger conveyor system, extending the service life of the flighting. The screw conveyors move an extremely abrasive material and were being replaced annually. The high-performance adhesive bonding system was used to line the screw flighting on the auger with alumina ceramic tiles. After 6-1/2 years, the lining was intact while the steel shaft on the auger had to be replaced. KALBOND™ Adhesive Bonding System.
