The Wear Protection People

Kalenborn Abresist, a division of Kalenborn International, provides wear resistant linings with excellent abrasion and impact resistance – specifically constructed for use wherever wear and abrasion are a problem. ABRESIST® wear and abrasion resistant linings reduce downtime and maintenance and are marketed throughout the United States, Canada and Mexico. Kalenborn Abresist is ISO-9001:2015 Certified plus PICS, ISNetworld and BROWZ safety compliant.

Founded in 1977, Kalenborn Abresist Corporation, based in Urbana, Indiana, manufactures wear resistant linings, including ceramic and fused cast basalt linings that provide excellent impact and abrasion resistant protection. The original KALENBORN Abresist material was developed in the 1920s by KALENBORN® International, the German parent of Kalenborn Abresist.

Kalenborn Abresist customers include the power, cement, chemical, coal, building products, mining and pulp and paper industries, as well as the food industry where ABRESIST® and KALOCER® are approved for use in FDA food processing plants. Linings are marketed throughout the United States, Canada, and Mexico. Industries that work with highly abrasive raw materials or by-products are candidates for using our linings. They are ideal for lining components susceptible to severe abrasion in plant material handling and processing operations.

Kalenborn Abresist offers custom design, manufacture, delivery, and installation of its materials to meet customers’ specific abrasion, impact and corrosion problems. Sales representatives and engineers visit customers on-site to assess problems and a specific material or material combination solution is suggested. Customers may install the abrasion resistant linings themselves or have Kalenborn Abresist technicians install the materials. The technicians are also available to supervise the installation by the customer or his contractor.

The use of Kalenborn Abresist wear resistant linings on problematic components adds up to significant savings because of their long service life. The cost of replacement parts, the downtime of operations, plant clean-up and the cost of maintenance work are all dramatically reduced.
