Oxifree Global will be exhibiting its thermoplastic coating, Oxifree TM198, at MINExpo International in Las Vegas, Nevada, (26 – 28 September 2016).
The coating protects metal components that are susceptible to corrosion and abrasion from both natural and artificial elements, extending the life of conveyor pulley and bearing systems.
The cost of contamination within the mining industry is considerable, with asset owners frequently needing to replace equipment after only a few months. TM198 has been proven to extend the life of this equipment by up to 10 times, with great success.
Managing Director at Oxifree Global, Ed Hall, commented: “We’re really looking forward to showcasing our products at MINExpo in September. One of the main challenges in the mining sector is asset lifetime, excessive production downtime, and associated maintenance costs. We are proud to offer a solution that has proven to reduce these costs not only by extending asset life but by therefore reducing the frequency of and need for operational shutdown.”
Oxifree’s Oxitape is a way to ensure maintenance of components is easier and more cost effective for asset owners.
“Oxifree’s unique TM198 coating and Oxitape offer unparalleled protection against corrosion and abrasion, while being wholly organic, reusable and environmentally friendly,” explained Ed.
Both Oxifree products can be easily removed and then reapplied, making them ideal for inspections, maintenance and small touch ups in the field.
