Trelleborg has developed a compound specially for oil sands coarse tailings and Hydro Transport which is resistant to high abrasion and bitumen, it is also resistant to extreme weather condition due to the harsh winters in the area where it is used.
This compound is tested both in the laboratory and field. The compound has also been tested with an oil sands producer which has 5” rock in their tailings and hydro transport.
For our reinforcement, we only use cord layers of polyester or Kevlar depending on the pressure and application. We rubberize the cord layer in-house, which is unique, this means we have full control of our quality and supply. A UV-resistant cover, which is also resistant to bitumen and cold weather condition was developed for the outer cover.
