Kevlar® Dare Bigger™ Moments: Oriental Rubber Industries
Over the years, Oriental has amassed a wide range of products encompassing industries from mining to lumber and coal to gold.
The company was drawn to DuPont™ Kevlar® because of its use for decades in body armor entrusted to help protect brave soldiers from combat hazards, such as ballistic projectiles and explosive fragments. Oriental worked collaboratively with the DuPont Dare Bigger™ platform to challenge the existing conveying solutions with DuPont advanced materials and capabilities.
“Whether its requirement of high impact resistance for the mining industry, or high heat resistance for the steel industry, or corrosion resistance in port industries, Maxx Armour™ belts reinforced with DuPont™ Kevlar® are an ideal choice for superior performance. Kevlar® being lightweight, strong and durable reduces down time and improves productivity by enhancing belt life,” says Vishal Makar, Managing Director, Oriental Rubber Industries. “Reinforced belts made of DuPont™ Kevlar® enable our customers to break boundaries and dare bigger in terms of their capacity.”
The Dare Bigger™ brand platform represents inspiration for anyone who relies on the safety and performance of Kevlar®. The science behind this advanced material, coupled with its strength and durability, allows us to push boundaries, defy limits and challenge the conventional. From athletes to astronauts, law enforcement, military, first responders and industrial workers Kevlar® enables anyone with an imagination and a job to do to Dare Bigger™.
DuPont recently published data from a study with Codelco, the National Copper Corporation of Chile, which demonstrated a capacity increase and reduction in annual maintenance costs through the use of Kevlar® in mining belts.
