Save with LOCTITE product range

These days, there is increasing pressure for mines to implement cost-saving initiatives with little capital for new equipment. Henkel has a vast range of LOCTITE solutions that assist the mining industry to extend the life of their current machinery by rebuilding, repairing and protecting it. Henkel’s LOCTITE solutions will also save on downtime, unscheduled downtime and reduce the requirement for replacement capital expenditure.

Henkel LOCTITE products offer several cost-effective solutions that improve safety and maintain plants and equipment in optimal condition while withstanding the adverse operating environments of mines and quarries.

The products aim to extend crusher life, prevent conveyor downtime, and improve abrasion and erosion-resistance, which leads to enhanced safety and equipment reliability.

These products include, but are not limited to:

Resilient wear-resistant coatings

Wear and corrosion are common causes for failure in mining equipment such as chutes, hydrocyclones, flotation cells, pipe elbows and ducts. Surface treatments and protective coatings are the most effective solution for surface protection.

LOCTITE wear-resistant coatings combine the superior wear properties of ceramic and the convenience of two-part epoxies to protect equipment in adverse environments.

They are easy-to-apply and have a high resistance to corrosion, abrasion and wear issue, as well as enable longlasting large-scale repairs.

High-performance epoxy based backing compounds

Crushers are subject to extreme wear that can shorten their life cycle. Epoxy-based backing materials provide the necessary support for all types of gyratory crushers, cone crushers and grinding mills.

LOCTITE PC 9020 Backing Compound has a significantly reduced odour and is more user friendly than traditional epoxy backing systems. Its unique colour-change mix identifies when the product is ready to pour, and its high-compression strength and impact-resistance increase the life of liners.

Customer feedback and Henkel’s proactive approach to increased health and safety led to this innovative solution in crusher backing technology.

Fast conveyor belt repairs solutions

LOCTITE PC 7350 Conveyor Belt Repair is a premium rubber repair compound that is fast curing and self levelling, making it suitable for on-site conveyor belt repairs. With high levels of adhesion and abrasion resistance, repairs made with LOCTITE PC 7350 have the same durability and flexibility as the conveyor belt, increasing reliability and overall efficiency, as well as providing excellent protection and longevity of clips, splices, and belt scraper blades and devices.
