First, a solid 2” polyurethane wear panel was tested, which lasted 3 days.

Next, an Argonics dual durometer ceramic Redi-Liner panel was tested. This 12” x 12” x 4” panel was made up of a 63 Shore A durometer bottom with a 93 Shore A durometer top, with 1-1 ∕2” ceramic cubes. This panel has lasted 14 months.
