The constant high volume sliding abrasion caused by mass flow in bins, hoppers and transfer points is a common problem area on a conveyor system.

Most blockages and material flow problems (rat-holing, bridging and caking) can be attributed to ineffective chute design and varying moisture content.  These issues if not fixed can have detrimental effects to the overall production process.  Effective chute design should allow for wear resistance, but not at the expense of material flow.

As bulk materials generate varying degrees of wear and flow under differing conditions, to maximise material flow it would pay to exercise a good combination of wear liner and flow control, taking into consideration the bulk material characteristics.

The Right Material Flow Solution for Your Application – K-Slide Low Friction Lining Products can solve frequent material flow problems and are an ideal solution for the most challenging bulk materials handling applications.

Kinder K-Slide Low Friction Lining Products:

  • Low co-efficient of friction, abrasion and corrosion resistant.
  • Light weight, easy to install and work with.
  • Wide range of grades to suit all applications considering abrasion resistance, impact strength, U.V stabilised or anti-static properties.
  • Available in a wide range of thickness and sheet sizes.

K-Slide Fasteners

High strength K-Slide Fasteners are designed to provide an effective and continuous liner surface.  Ideally suited for high velocity, high impact load zone and excessive abrasion applications and where a superior 100% poly surface is a key requirement for attaching a polyurethane surface onto hardware.


Our team of Technical Applications Specialists and Engineers are fully trained to expertly evaluate your individual lining application properly, taking into consideration all material flow characteristics and recommend next steps to keep your production moving, with minimal interruptions and stoppages.
