Storage & transfer equipment blocked by sticky materials, restricted flow in fixed plant, carry back & hang-up in mobile equipment are all challenges met daily by production personnel. These challenges extend to OH&S issues resulting from manual cleaning and clearing spillage. MATROX (Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene) has proven to be a good collaborator in overcoming these issues for many years.
Bulk solids can behave badly and unpredictably across a wide range of industries. Variable moisture content and changing material supply causes handling problems for processes and for those charged with the responsibility of providing commercially viable deliverables.

Another Matrox application is the inclusion of one-piece on road truck liners. A light weight alternative to aluminium doubling plates offering excellent sliding abrasion and flow promotion properties for quick turnaround times, reduced cross contamination of loads and complete discharging.

DOTMAR can tailor a complete MATROX lining package to suit your application and convert material supply into an expert installation. These include in-house panel machining, on-site installation and project management – all from one source.

Dotmar Matrox Dotmar Engineering Plastic Products is unique throughout the world of engineering plastics distributors. Unique due to the fact that we are well versed in handling bulk materials, able to provide options to overcome hang up problems and able to conduct site installations meeting the manufacturer’s specifications. Dotmar leads the world in onsite Matrox (Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene) flow promotion installations and provides valuable information to our global cousins through experience gained across a multitude of industries and bulk solids handled.
Project management, providing well trained installers and specialised equipment ensures the Matrox lining is installed efficiently, with minimal interruption to production. Whilst onsite Matrox installations in both fixed and mobile plant have been core to our business for over 17 years, Dotmar has moved into installing “one piece” Matrox liners in on road trucks and trailers.The light weight Matrox coil liners provide numerous benefits to both fleet and owner operators by protecting the bodies from impact damage and sliding abrasion. Dotmar has effectively installed liners into trucks hauling asphalt. Asphalt is hauled to site at approximately 160°C, therefore, it is critical to allow for thermal expansion of the liner during installation. Onsite and offsite installations are attended to efficiently, nationally and throughout the South Pacific region by our expansive network of branches and partners.
