Benefits of Cladding wear technology:

  • Reduce or Eliminate Blowouts - our cladding can be applied to weak links in your conveyance system, reducing product loss and clean-up efforts.
  • Avoid Cross-Contamination - other wear protection methods use a cavity, which can retain product and lead to contamination between runs.
