Mining & construction: plastics that are tough in the extreme.

Few industries put vehicles and machinery through a tougher test than mining and construction. Not only does equipment have to stand up to the rigors of the job, it also needs to stand the test of time. This is where Kaylan® and its unique hard-wearing properties set it apart from other traditional materials.

Improved performance

In some of the most demanding conditions imaginable, Kaylan excels day in and day out. Highly resistant to wear and tear, unbreakable and virtually indestructible, Kaylan can be specified with confidence – safe in the knowledge that it will continue to provide maximum performance even in the most arduous of applications.

Outstanding properties

It's worth remembering that whilst being incredibly strong, Kaylan is also extremely lightweight and offers impressive load-bearing properties in both tension and compression. Add to this its resistance to corrosion, as well as many oils, greases and other potentially harmful chemicals, and it isn't difficult to see why more and more companies insist that Kaylan elastomers are specified for their critical parts.
