Wear is erosion or sideways displacement of material from its position on a solid surface performed by the action of another surface. Abrasive wear occurs when a hard rough surface slides across a softer surface. Cast Basalt offers Abrasion Resistant Wear Protection and helps extend the service life of industry and mining equipment used in abrasive and corrosive applications.

Cast Basalt Tiles and Shapes

Cast Basalt is a naturally occurring basalt rock wear resistant material. Offering superb abrasion resistance this mineral is quarried, melted, cast and annealed to form a fine crystalised glass ceramic of extreme hardness that resists erosion. Cast Basalt is supplied in pipe and tile form and provides an excellent hardwearing surface for corrosive wear and abrasion protection of equipment.
