Bearings in Australia still spinning 12 years after Enviropeel Application

Enviropeel was was first introduced and pioneered in Australia by a UK engineer working in Australia for his family business.


A lot has changed since those early days. Recently we had a reminder of how far ahead of the game we were back then… and still are!


Our Australian distributor recently met up with the same engineer, whose business has now become part of a much larger specialist engineering and asset maintenance group who are heavily involved in advanced asset-protection technologies such as Enviropeel. During their conversation it came up that the company had recently inspected some Enviropeel applications protecting pulley bearing housings and shafts coated in the very early days of Enviropeel ... so early, in fact, that some of the applications were from before we had learned how to color or properly UV protect the material.

They were very pleased to see how brilliantly the pulley parts had been preserved, despite being outside for more than 12 years in a tropical coastal environment.


They sent us some photos, as you can see. The first shows the original honey-colored Enviropeel material completely covered in dust and sand, peeled away from the bearing housing. Despite the coating's appearance on the outside, the inside of the coating can be seen to still be in perfect condition, glistening with its built-in inhibitors ... and the bearing housing is in great condition.


The second and third images (clockwise) show two grease nipples–one with Enviropeel protection and one without.


Below those pictures, material cut away from the end cap area of another conveyor pulley housing shows the excellent condition of the parts but specifically the ‘shiny’ bright grease nipple in ‘as new’ condition.

long-term protection with Enviropeel

Finally, as a word of warning, the last pic shows what happens to a bearing housing that did not have the benefit of Enviropeel protection.


These pictures show why, two decades after first hearing of Enviropeel, the Australians are still so committed to the system.
