A coal transfer chute at a large power station was suffering severe wear problems. Individual ceramic tiles cemented into place provided the abrasion resistance needed but could not cope with impact leading to rapid failure. When one tile became dislodged the others soon followed, exposing chute steelwork to excessive wear.
