Composite materials
in mining equipment

Ferobide is a reliable solution for protecting mining wear parts during difficult open pit or underground mining operations. Ferobide is trusted across the globe to help users by minimising equipment downtime, reducing costs by preventing mining wear part damage and extending service life to deliver long-lasting results.


Protection for mining operations

Ferobide is the ideal protection for mining operations which depend on wear-resistant linings that are used in chutes, buckets, conveyors, augers, dumpers and more. Being extremely wear-resistant, Ferobide is an optimal choice for reinforcing hard-wearing areas of larger systems to reach a balanced life.

Reduced capital tied to inventory

For manufacturers, distributors, and repairers, the versatile nature of Ferobide means a small number of Ferobide SKUs stocked can be used for a wide range of parts. This reduces capital held in stocks.

Improved mining profits

Ferobide helps to reduce spend on wearing metal and avoids unplanned downtime which in turn improves profit and efficiency.

Easy to install, quick for repairs

Standard MMA and MIG welding methods can be used to install Ferobide tiles and Ferobide can be welded to any position, where brazing tungsten or glueing ceramics cannot be used.

Protect investment

Ferobide is longer lasting than conventional wear materials such as overlay plates, white iron and AR steels which greatly increase the overall life of parts and achieve maximum output from machinery

Reduced diesel use

The attractive wear-performance-to-weight ratio of Ferobide gives maximum wear protection without increasing weight.

Increase payload

The low weight to wear ratio also allows weight savings to be made on equipment such as buckets which allows an increase in payload or a reduction of tyre and linkage wear.

Avoid downtime, and increase
part lifetime

Ferobide helps avoid equipment downtime and increases part lifetime. This reduces the time spent replacing worn parts and increases the uptime of machinery.

Sliding Wear

Ferobide is built to withstand the toughest conditions

No matter what environment you work in, Ferobide stays strong and tough against the effects of rocks, coal, sand, scrap metal, minerals, and other abrasive materials and conditions. Ferobide is proven in the field as being an abrasion-resistant composite of choice that can help improve the service life of parts and equipment that face these challenges daily.

In sliding wear applications, Ferobide provides excellent wear protection outlasting conventional wear-resistant materials.


Thanks to Ferobide’s hardness, wear is minimised as the edges of the abrasive material cannot cut as easily into the hard surface.


Whatever you need Ferobide for, you’ll find a range of grades and dimensions to suit your application.


Ferobide’s performance isn’t just at the surface level. Hardness and durability run all the way through Ferobide wear parts.
