Ceramic Wear Liners

As a leader in the ceramic tile liner space, LCDM offers numerous options for projects using the Ceramic Tile Liner Kit, one of the most abrasive, resistant materials available. The most common products that utilize ceramic tile liners are transitions, adjustable elbows, square spouting and valves. We can also provide brown and pink tiles for the rice industry. LCDM is more than willing to custom cut pieces to any desired size in the interest of saving time in the field.


Advantages of
Ceramic tile liners

At LCDM, we provide ceramic tile liners to meet the needs of millwrights, contractors and farmers. Our knowledge of the material handling industry allows us to develop products and systems that enhance your efficiency and improve your grain and material handling. Enjoy these benefits:

Improved Grain Quality

Our ceramic chute liners and spout lining help you ensure unmatched grain quality. Their durability and reliability lengthen your system’s lifespan by protecting them from corrosion and abrasion. As a result, your grain handling parts can maintain a high level of grain quality by providing a smooth flow.


Simple and reliable, ceramic tile liners work as a cost-effective lining solution. Our manufacturing team focuses on the power of high-quality design and materials — no frills or extras. You get ceramic tiles that provide dependable performance at a sensible price.

Natural Sturdiness and Reliability

Ceramic’s natural properties make it a great choice for wear-resistant lining material. We take advantage of its built-in resistance to abrasion to give you a reliable liner. Its sturdiness holds up to high material flows and speeds to prevent build-up and increase grain quality. Since ceramic naturally resists corrosion, it offers impact protection in high-flow situations. Our ceramic tiles reduce noise and vibration during your operations.

Dependable Epoxy Bonding

Along with our ceramic liner tiles, we sell adhesive and epoxy kits for bonding them to your system. Choose from two options:

  • Two-part epoxy kit: Our two-part epoxy kit features a formula that strongly bonds ceramic tiles to grain flow systems. It works on most ceramic, metal, concrete, fiberglass and wood surfaces.
  • Two-part epoxy kit with ceramic beads: If you need to patch a part of your system before lining it, count on our two-part epoxy kit with ceramic beads. This special formulation includes ceramic beads that preserve a product’s life.

Longer Service Life

LCDM ceramic tiles lengthen your system’s service life, saving you costs over time. The combination of naturally durable ceramic and strongly bonded epoxy results in dependable system protection. With ceramic tiles, you can also replace sections at a time without the need to make a full replacement. Strategically replacing your ceramic tiles helps you lengthen your equipment’s lifespan even more.

Versatile Purposes

The tile-based system behind our ceramic liners lets you shape them to fit a variety of system parts. Protect your chutes, spouts, liners, hoppers and other components.

Ceramic vs. urethane liners

In grain flow systems, you can use a variety of lining materials, including ceramic and urethane. At LCDM, we also specialize in urethane linings. We welcome you to reach out to our friendly and knowledgeable experts for advice with this decision.

Urethane provides more flexibility than ceramic and works as a worthwhile investment for lining. On the other hand, ceramic offers these advantages:

Ceramic tile is one of the most abrasive-resistant liner options available. Ceramic tile will cost more up front, but it will last longer than a urethane liner (saving you money in the future). On average, ceramic will last about 40 times longer than a polyurethane.

Two components make up the on-site ceramic liner installation process — tiles and epoxy. Follow the directions in our epoxy kit or from our experts to attach the tiles to your system. When you need to repair a part of your system, you can replace the tiles you need. Our two-part epoxy with ceramic beads also allows you to repair the base metal in your parts. For an even stronger bond, request vacuum-bonding from our team.

In contrast to urethane’s flexibility, ceramic tile provides sturdiness. Our ceramic lining system uses ceramic’s natural durability to protect your flow system’s components. Each choice features different types of wear resistance to keep your parts in good shape.

As a naturally occurring material, ceramic offers a lower environmental footprint than urethane. Our eco-conscious customers can count on ceramic as a green alternative to synthetic linings like urethane.

Vacuum bonded
Ceramic wear liners

Our team can use vacuum bonding to attach your ceramic tile liners to your system. We use state-of-the-art equipment to install ceramic wear tiles with vacuum bonding techniques. With the vacuum bonding process, we can attach ceramic liners on a variety of custom designs.

Benefits of Vacuum-Bonded Liners

  • Improved performance: The vacuum bonding process creates one of the strongest ceramic bonds you can get for grain flow equipment. It enhances your system’s impact and wear resistance through dependable engineering.
  • High Reliability: Vacuum bonding enhances ceramic’s already high level of durability through its unparalleled bond strength. It allows you to use ceramic in situations where it would not normally hold strong.
  • Enhanced versatility: With vacuum bonding, you can attach ceramic tiles to a wide range of materials. We use vacuum bonding in multiple types of grain flow system parts, including chutes and spouts.

Ceramic tile liners
For material handling Equipment

Ceramic wear liners find use in a variety of industries and situations. Their dependability and sturdiness make them valuable for many applications that involve material transfer. Ask us how we can help you install ceramic lining tiles in your material handling system.

These industries and other sectors take advantage of ceramic’s natural properties in wear lining:

In oil, gas and refining, ceramic liners can protect pipes and chutes from abrasive materials used during manufacturing.

Ceramic withstands abrasion from crushed ore, fine sand and slurry in mining applications.

During concrete and cement production, ceramic protects equipment from the friction generated by materials.

Industries that use trucks in their operations can line certain transport vehicles with ceramic tiles for damage control.

Feed mills and grain handling operations utilize ceramic liners to protect their stored products such as corn, rice and oats during the transportation to and from bins.
