Rokeby Technologies are the exclusive distributor for Elastotec Wear Panel Systems for the regions of Australia, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea and New Caledonia.
As a specialist manufacturer, Elastotec has developed a range of high-performance ceramic Wear Panel Systems for applications in the mining industry for protection against wear. The Wear Panel Systems are based on composites of state of the art ceramics, superior performance elastomers, engineered polymers and steel backing plates. The Elastotec wear panels are precision vacuum moulded. This ensures a rubber tear bond is obtained between the rubber and the ceramic tiles and the rubber and the polymer backing plates. The 100% rubber tear bonding ensures that the ceramic tiles are retained in the panel even under the most arduous operating conditions.
Elastotec has formulated a range of wear resistant ceramics. In house ability to test key ceramic properties including Vickers Hardness, Flex Crack Toughness and Wear Resistance has enabled Elastotec to optimise the ceramic performance and confirm these properties on each production batch. Elastotec wear panels can be made in a range of ceramic materials to suit a variety of end use applications. Elastotec has a strong background and knowledge of elastomers. The elastomer is the lowest cost raw material in a ceramic wear panel but provides critical functions of retention of the ceramic tiles and cushioning from impact. Elastotec has developed a high strength ( >30 Mpa Tensile Strength), high resilience ( >60% resilience) elastomer with in built adhesion promoters. As with the ceramics Elastotec has in house testing capability for all these elastomer physical properties and can guarantee 100 % rubber tear bonds between the ceramic and the polymer backing plate for each and every panel.

Elastotec Wear Panel Systems are ideal for a wide variety of mining, mineral processing and material handling applications for protection against extreme wear. Typical application examples include chutes, cyclones, launders, pipes and tanks, conveyor transfer points, screen beams, underpans, components and vibratory feeders.
Elastotec has pioneered the development of Hot Vulcanised (HV) Ceramic Wear Panel Systems and the method of application. The HV bonding process provides consistent 100% rubber tear bonds ensuring the longest possible service life. Additionally, Elastotec manufacture a complete range of Cold Vulcanised (CV) Ceramic Wear Panels with a CN bonding layer.
Elastotec manufacture Direct Bond Ceramic Wear Panel Systems in easy to install 500mm by 500mm prefabricated wear panels.
Elastotec’s Direct Bond Ceramic Wear Panels are manufactured with High performance Aluminium Oxide ceramic for increased abrasion and crack resistance. The tiles are supplied in pads with clear backing tape to ensure accurate positioning. Elastotec uterlise a high strength bonding system to provide adhesion of the ceramic tiles to the metal substrate >20 MPa. An automated mixing/dispensing system for the two part epoxy adhesive to ensures consistency and control to eliminate any chance of operator error.
