All over the world, mining companies suffer from corrosion problems. From continent to continent, our Corrocoat products – partnered with our unique skills and experience – prove to be the answer.

Whether it’s surface or sub-surface, we apply coatings that get results. Not just in terms of performance, but also value for money. A replacement coating costs far less than a piece of equipment which has to be completely replaced.

Whole-life cycle costs have to be considered when working long-term. Our 40 years of experience have seen us protect the investments of companies working in gold mining, nickel, uranium, iron ore, tin, and more. It is not uncommon for our coatings to still be going strong up to 25 years later.

Mining Case Studies

US104: Kaolin Sand Slurry Grinder Tank and Blades

A rubber lining used to protect the blades of a Kaolin sand slurry grinder would delaminate from the blades once or twice a year introducing rubber that caused damage to downstream pumps. The client wanted a protective coating that would significantly extend the expected service life of the blades. Additional protection was also sought for internals of the grinder tank in which the blades are located and rotate.
