The rise of bespoke surface coatings

The rise of bespoke surface coatings Customer demand, time pressures and factory automation are just some of the drivers shaping today’s manufacturing landscape. Machines are running faster, and for longer, than ever before, and for OEMs this means making adaptations to their machine designs in order to maintain optimal performance in increasingly hostile conditions – keeping quality of output high and waste levels low. One such adaptation is the use of bespoke surface coatings, capable of enhancing the performance of a machine for its intended application. Whether that’s applying a carefully considered surface roughness to improve the traction of a

The science behind chemical resistant coatings

The science behind chemical resistant coatings From semiconductors and piping systems to centrifuges and agitators, applications that use chemical extraction, heating elements and treatment baths benefit from a chemical resistant coating to prevent the expensive and often catastrophic effects of corrosion. An important part of many industries, chemical resistant coatings prolong asset life, prevent machine or component failure and maintain industrial uptime. Here, we look at the science behind chemical resistant coatings and explore a number of performance-driven coating systems:

Choosing The Right Non-Stick Coating

If your system needs to be non-stick, to improve production line performance, improve hygiene and make clean down faster, selecting the right surface treatment can feel daunting. There are many things to consider, including which coating is right for the substrate you want to treat, operating temperatures, corrosion levels and load capacity. Here, we will explore how to make choosing the right non-stick coating as easy as possible.

The Science Behind Non-stick Coatings

For manufacturing applications, applying a non-stick coating to key machinery contact points such as conveyor belts, weigh pans, chutes and moulds can make clean down quicker, maintenance faster and hygiene better. There are performance benefits to the right non-stick coating too, like improved production flow rate and product release to prevent bottle necks and reduce the need for human input in key areas of the process. Here, we look at the science behind non-stick coatings, like Teflon/PTFE and Xylan.
