In general, ceramics has the properties of hard but easy to break. Accordingly, for the use of ceramics as abrasion resistant materials, it is very important to understand and apply those properties for achieving stable successful results.
Table for products of ABR series and general properties of abrasion resistant materials
||Sintered material with fine crystal structure
composit with rubbe
|Excellent in impact resistant and lowering
Composit of ceramics and rubber
||Cast-ceramics produced by the method of
melting and casting
【AL-ABR】…Abrasion resistant material of alumina base to reduce particle abrasion drastically
AL-ABR shows excellent abrasion resistance as alumina base material of AL-ABR protects wear surface attacked by abrasive particles.
【RB-ABR】…Composite material with rubber and ceramics to reduce the impact-wear and undesired noise
Rubber-ABR is excellent abrasion resistant composite material made by integrated structure of abrasion resistant alumina base material and rubber. Because rubber absorbs impact, Rubber-ABR has unique advantages such as to overcome the week point of ceramics’character (easy to break), to extend the life drastically and reduce undesired noise.
【ZB-ABR】…ZB-ABR is zirconia-alumina base abrasion resistant material (utilizing fusion cast technology of AGC Ceramics) and even complicated shapes are possible to supply due to casting method
ZB-ABR shows excellent abrasion resistant due to fine crystal-structure composed by melting ceramics material through fusion cast method. As direct casting into pipe is possible, even complicated shapes are possible to produce with ZB-ABR.
