    CERA-WEAR Ceramic Wear Pads


    CERA-WEAR Ceramic Wear Pads are a premium grade, composite liner of wear resistant, 92% alumina ceramic tiles, vulcanised to an impact resistant rubber backing. This tile has excellent resistance to high speed wet slurry and fine particle sliding abrasion.

    CERA-WEAR Ceramic Wear pads are supplied with a specially formulated Neoprene based CN Bonding Layer to achieve ultimate adhesion when bonded to steel or other rubber surfaces. In order to achieve this ultimate bond strength, the TRS range of cold, vulcanising adhesives are recommended.

    CERA-WEAR Ceramic Wear Pads are supplied with the tiles flush and without gaps to eliminate the possibility of materials wearing between them. The rubber backing gives the pad moderate impact resistance and flexibility for installation on flat or concave surfaces, making them suitable for wear protection ceramic lining applications which require a full 100% ceramic surface.

    The CN bonding layer and TRS adhesive system is extremely flexible and allows a good bond strength to be achieved even in adverse conditions often encountered when the application is occurring on site on operational equipment.

    Ceramic Wear Pads can be supplied as an individual panel or as a custom element ready for mechanical installation. They can be supplied as per specifications and drawings or custom designed to meet your requirements.


    CERA-WEAR Ceramic Wear Pads have been designed primarily for use as a ceramic lining for the wear and corrosion protection of steel surfaces. It’s mainly used for high speed wet abrasion applications such as slurry handling in the mineral processing industry but can be used for any fine particle abrasion applications. Typical equipment to be lined include:

    • Chutes
    • Pipes and tanks
    • Cyclones
    • Launders
    • Screen beams and components
    • Mill feed chutes
    • Sumps and underpans
    • Grain handling and processing equipment
