Description

MATROX is a family of specialty grade UHMWPE Sheet specifically developed by Rochling for bulk handling applications within the Australian and New Zealand markets. MATROX UHMWPE Sheets assist to reduce typical flow problems of bulk solids in bins, hoppers, chutes, truck beds and other applications. However, every application, brings with it unique challenges and places special demands on the plastic lining materials.

Changes in moisture and particle size can affect a product’s ability to flow. Traditional steel surfaces can become rough and corroded, causing materials to stick to the surface, causing blockages and reducing productivity and quality.

A range of MATROX grades, tailored to different flow promotion lining applications with specific requirements is now available.

The MATROX UHWMPE Flow Promotion Liners range combines the best surface friction qualities with abrasion resistance, promoting bulk material flow, whilst at the same time withstanding abrasion from these rugged applications. When compared to steel, lining an existing bin with MATROX is only about one third the cost, lower in weight and the MATROX UHMWPE Sheet reduces the load on the overall structure.

Key Features and Benefits:

  • Impact Strength - it is virtually unbreakable
  • Light weight - easy to handle without special equipment
  • Electrical insulation - it is a good insulator
  • Weatherproof - it doesn't absorb water and is UV stable
  • Chemical resistance - resists corrosive chemicals
    (Sulphuric Acid, Caustic Soda)
  • Abrasion resistance - rated better than Carbon
  • Steel for sliding abrasion applications
  • Flow promotion - Ideal product for bulk material handling

Polystone Matrox Applications:

  • Bulk Storage flow Promotion
  • Bulk Storage Wear Liners
  • Mechanical Chain Guides
  • Mechanical Wear Strips
