Graphene Protective Materials Extend Life in Mining Equipment

PureGRAPH® enhanced bucket liners ready for installation in Pilbara, WA
 

First Graphene are pleased to announce that several new PureGRAPH® enhanced bucket liners have been supplied by newGen to a second major iron ore producer in Pilbara, Western Australia.

newGen use PureGRAPH® high-performing graphene additives from First Graphene to manufacture their ArmourGRAPH™ rubber wear linings with outstanding strength and wear characteristics, increasing the life of wear linings and leading to significant productivity benefits for the mine.

The mine is also installing PureGRAPH® in other process equipment such as conveyor skirting products.

PureGRAPH® enhanced wear liners continue to be adopted across the mining industry, due to their extended life, ease of use and enhanced fire retardancy properties. As the benefits continue to be validated, the industry is expected to adopt graphene enhanced materials as a standard approach.

PureGRAPH® enhanced bucket liners have been successfully in service since the middle of 2019 and as reported in February 2020 these materials continue to outperform standard rubber wear liners.

Adoption of PureGRAPH® enhanced products by another major iron ore producer is evidence of the quality of First Graphene’s products. Only First Graphene has the capacity to deliver tonnage volumes of high-performing graphene to users as they adopt graphene into their products.
