Benefits Of Abrasion-Resistant Coatings
Metal abrasion can be expected due to friction, grinding and other wear effects caused by regular machine usage. Coating Solutions provides high-quality Chemours® Teflon™, fluoropolymer industrial coats to industries across America; our coating solutions offer optimal friction and abrasion resistance for your industrial coating.
Light metals are essential in many industries, such as transport and aerospace. Due to their less durability, they’re more susceptible to wear. There are various solutions that can be employed to keep manufacturing costs down while still achieving the appropriate thickness, chemical makeup, application method and thickness desired.
What conditions are necessary to create water-resistant ceramic coatings suitable for outdoor use?
People often mistakenly believe that light materials aren’t tough enough to resist deformation. Before selecting the ideal wear coating, we take into account these features:
● Friction: Friction reduces energy transfer between sliding surfaces, potentially leading to damage to the coating. Preparing the body so it can withstand force even with wear-resistant coatings makes it more resilient against such impacts.
● Load Capacity: The coating thickness determines the load capability. To withstand heavier loads and prevent fractures, we use thick coatings.
What is the most widespread type of coating?
● Hard Anodizing: Hard anodized surfaces are extremely wear-resistant and can be employed to create more rigid products.
● Nitriding: is a popular hardening method that’s both thin and strong. Unfortunately, its high wear rate makes it unsuitable for flexible lightweight materials; depending on the difficulty level of your material, either gas nitriding or plasma nitriding may be appropriate.
● Plasma electronic oxidation: (PEO) has a three-step performance process that provides stronger crystallization and excellent corrosion resistance.
● Electroless nickel: EN has become a go-to coating method due to its superior results. We clean and prepare the surface so it’s clean and long-lasting.
