In 1972, Iracore became one of the first companies to offer urethane-lined pipe for mining and other heavy industrial applications. Compared to unlined pipe and traditional lining materials, urethane provides superior performance and durability, making it the ideal lining material for applications in high abrasion and corrosion environments.
Today, Iracore remains the global leader in urethane-based wear materials for a wide variety of industries. Our commitment to innovation in advancing wear technology makes us an ideal partner for operations requiring long-lasting, value-adding urethane-lined pipes.
