Saint-Gobain Wear Resistant Technologies

Saint-Gobain Wear Resistant Technologies is the world's largest manufacturer of wear-resistant ceramic materials. Through innovation, technology, and service, our Wear Resistant Technologies department combines the resources and strengths of all Saint-Gobain companies to solve today's most complex industrial wear problems. Our objective is to improve the performance, efficiency, and equipment life of our customer's material-handling equipment.

In industry, one thing is certain, and that is the financial toll wear problems exact on the profit margin. Abrasive and corrosive materials quickly damage expensive, unprotected production systems, causing costly repairs and unnecessary downtime. With the right solution to your wear problems – a Saint-Gobain Solution – you will extend the life of your equipment and keep your systems at maximum operational levels. 

Saint-Gobain specializes in solving your unique wear problems by engineering, manufacturing, and recommending installation procedurers for customized protective systems made of the world’s toughest ceramic materials. Through quality engineering and precision manufacturing, we provide systems that have superior performance ratings in chemical resistance, mechanical erosion, electrical insulation, and abrasion resistance. With the strengths of the Saint-Gobain companies taken together, no other organization provides the depth and scope of materials, application experience, engineering capabilities, or global presence.

As a leader in developing and manufacturing engineered ceramic components to fit virtually any type of equipment, Saint-Gobain designs protective systems for complex industrial material handling applications ranging from large cyclones in coal-fired power plants, steel mills, and asphalt plants to processing equipment used in pharmaceutical clean rooms, food processing plants, grain handling, mineral processing, cement manufacturing, chemical processing, petrochemical plants, and pulp and paper mills. Regardless of the size and shape of your equipment or the material to be handled, Saint-Gobain has the right experience, expertise, ceramic materials, and technical capability to solve your specific wear problems.
