Parcel handling


We offer low-friction, electro-static dissipative lining solutions to line chutes for packaging facilities as well as sorting, luggage handling, and more. 

TIVAR® DrySlide eliminates the use of sprays and waxes, which greatly reduces the time and cost of cleaning contaminated systems. With anti-static and anti-friction additives, materials like DrySlide promote flow even in adverse operating conditions, such as humid, wet, or cold weather, as well as handling of challenging objects and packages, such as Styrofoam or boxes covered in packing tape.

Custom solutions

Through our STE offering, we are the only materials provider to design unique flow systems for custom applications from hoppers to trains. 

Delivering hands-off solutions using advanced engineering materials like our TIVAR® 88 & 88-2, our total lining solutions bring our expertise directly to you on site, where we evaluate your current equipment and requirements to provide custom liners for hoppers, ships, and more. 

We are committed to reinforcing safety and improving material flow efficiencies in any lining application, including stationary bulk materials storage vessels (hoppers, bins, chutes).

HDPE dump truck bed liner for faster, safer unloading
Truck linings

Bulk materials unloading

The QuickSilver® family of dump truck bed liner materials is uniquely designed to improve unloading by increasing flow of bulk materials for trucks on- and off-road.

From sticky to abrasive bulk materials, advanced truck bed liners provide easy release and fast unloading due to reduced friction, which also results in longer service life. 

By reducing the tipping angle needed to unload, high-performance dump truck bed liners help enable safer operating conditions for both vehicles and drivers, while also increasing off-loading efficiency and reducing floor repair, maintenance, and cleaning.

MAKING YOUR SUCCESS POSSIBLE Explore how we’re solving the world’s most complex lining challenges

Upgrading an aging lining system using advanced plastics and custom design

Efficient and reliable bulk material flow

Our customer needed a solution to material migration that was for material that was slipping behind their liners and compromising the system storage bunker. We developed a custom solution by designing a self-contained lining system that would eliminate the risk of material migration—and plant failure—while promoting flow.
