Imatech’s  Chesterton Advanced Reinforced Composites (ARC) materials protect, enhance and improve performance of equipment handling abrasive slurries, dry powders and turbulent fluids.

ARC Composites combine the hard wearing properties of ceramics with the resilience of a polymer matrix to deliver high resistance to sliding abrasion and erosion.

Imatech’s capabilities as a solutions provider combined with the applications engineering expertise of Chesterton are available to deliver to its customers, the optimum solution for every problem.

Imatech’s services include problem-analysis, lab-testing, solutions engineering, field application and on-going support.

ARC 890
A highly reinforced, beaded-ceramic composite for areas subjected to severe abrasive environments. Ideal for applications, where abrasion-resistant alloys, ceramic tiles or rubber liners are traditionally used for repair. Applications include slurry pumps, dry-particle abrasion and wear plates. Minimum thickness 6mm (1/4 inch).

ARC 897
A finer beaded version of ARC 890. May be applied at a minimum thickness of 3mm (1/8 inch).

ARC MX1
The most abrasion-resistant ARC composite; this highly reinforced, beaded-ceramic composite is designed for areas subjected to severe abrasion.

ARC MX1 can be moulded to exact dimensions using conventional tooling and is ideal for applications, where abrasion-resistant alloys, ceramic tiles, or rubber liners are traditionally used for repair. Applications include slurry pumps, dry-particle abrasion, and wear plates. Minimum thickness 6mm (1/4 inch).

ARC MX2
Pure white, abrasion-resistant composite is a highly reinforced, beaded-ceramic composite designed for areas subjected to severe abrasion.

ARC MX2 can be moulded to exact dimensions using conventional tooling and is ideal for applications, where material contamination is a major concern. Applications include cleaner cones, slurry-mixing blades, and wear plates. Minimum thickness 3 mm (1/8 inch).

ARC MX4
This extreme chemical and abrasion resistant ARC composite is a highly reinforced, beaded-ceramic composite designed for areas subjected to severe abrasion in aggressive chemical environments.

ARC MX4 can be moulded to exact dimensions using conventional tooling and is ideal for applications, where abrasion-resistant alloys, ceramic tiles or rubber liners are traditionally used for repair.

Applications include corrosive slurry pumps, agitator blades, and chemical pipelines. Minimum thickness 6mm (1/4 inch).

ARC MX5
A rapid-cure version of ARC 897. Ideal for quick repair of worn areas. May be applied at a minimum thickness of 3mm (1/8 inch).
