Valuable features of Aero-Tech bonded materials include:

  • Increased effective impact resistance of Ceramox 92 fine grain Alumina ceramic tiles.
  • Unparalleled performance in dynamic applications.
  • Tested high shear strength.
  • Proven performance in light weight designs.
  • Economical repair of worn components.


Components Designed For Your Applications

Most Aero-Tech applications are custom designed, based on operating environments and load conditions. Flat, concave, and convex surfaces are not a problem.

Our engineers use computer aided design to match the shape of the ceramic lining with the surface contour.

Typical Aero-Tech applications include:

  • coal pulverizer liners
  • fan blades, spiders, hub protectors
  • electrostatic precipitator dust valves
  • impact plates
  • slurry pump liners
  • and pipe elbows
