A simple but eﬀective way to reduce wear, is to use „metal-protection blocks“ for surface conditioning. The blocks are mounted in a way, that they continuously glide on the surface, which should be protected, using spring pressure (like electric carbon brushes). In that way, a protective layer of 0.001 - 0.005 mm is applied. The particles are integrated into the metal or plastic surface where they produce a highly stressable dry layer.
The adhesive blocks with a friction coeﬃcient of 0.3-0.7 are used to protect against wear but at the same time keep the necessary friction (driving gears, driving and friction wheels). These wear-protection adhesion blocks have a standard friction coeﬃcient of 0.7. Our in-house development and production allows us to manufacture adhesion blocks with higher or lower friction coeﬃcients adapted to the respective application.
The adhesive blocks are used where slippage leads to abrasive wear. Throught an increase in friction coeﬃcents. By increasing the friction coeﬃcient, wear- and slip-free operations are possible.
Used as wear-protection on:
drive rollers, drive wheels, friction wheel applications etc.
We produce variable sizes and shapes of adhesive blocks. We can also produce exactly the size and shape you need for your application.
Mounting of adhesive blocks
Adhesive blocks are held by brackets. These brackets are then installed on the machine where they are needed. For various mounting mechanisms we oﬀer a wide spectrum of brackets for our blocks.
We oﬀer brackets with or without consumption display, as well as easily reﬁllable brackets with insertions. This ensures the perfect position of the brackets on your application.
If there is no perfect bracket for your application, we can also produce one wich exactly matches your needs.
Specific application examples for adhesive blocks are listed in applications.
