Hi Ron, That Seaguard looks interesting. Frankly, I've never tested vinyl for abrasion characteristics and maybe I should. Cost may be an inhibiting factor, but I really don't know enough to say for sure. I guess my goal back in 2005 was to find a way to line a hopper that may already be in service ...

Mastersweep, Regarding the Elgin "industrial coating" which you refer to as being "on the right track," I spoke with an Elgin representative and he told me that the coating is polyurethane based. In fact, I found this on the Elgin website: "Our new LifeLiner system uses a proprietary polyurethane co...

I've never heard how this spray on urethane works in a street sweeper. Elgin actually now offers a coated hopper. I think it would extend the life, but it wouldn't make it last forever. My thought to put sheets in the hopper would allow you to replace the sheets as they wear instead of replacing the...

I'm not overly familiar with what you're saying Dwan, but any high heat contacting the polyurethane, which could lead to melting, could cause dangerous fumes. If I guy is inside a hopper perfoming this operation, it could be dangerous to breath these fumes. I'm a urethane guy, not a mechanic, so you...

We have not tested in this application. However, in regards to the transition sleeve we've produced, and a urethane spinner used in a salt spreader application, we've found that the media does not stick to this material like it does steel. I am interested in performing trials in the near future. The...

Thanks Karl. I was considering 1/8", maybe 1/4". What are your thoughts? As for size, I'm still looking at what seems feasible. For one thing, you need to be able to handle it and move it around inside the hopper. The material I'm considering would be pliable and you'd be able to bend it, but some o...

Thank you so much for your feedback. My thought was polyurethane sheets. These sheets could be cut to size and peiced into the hopper. To attach them you'd need to bolt them in, but you should be able to just put the in place and not worry about patching current rust spots, as long as you can attach...
