Corrosion is responsible for billions spent on maintenance and replacement costs. General solutions provide limited corrosion resistance however our coatings provide the next step forward in corrosion protection.
213 – A Zn-Al flake sacrifical coating with a salt spray corrosion resistance to white rust in excess of 720 hrs and more than 1000 hrs to red rust. It easily outperforms galvanizing, E-coat and electroplated zinc and it is our recommended replacement for cadmium plating. It can be applied to many different parts including fasteners requiring better-than-normal corrosion resistance. The 213 has no harmful substances such as chrome or lead and 213 is applied by dip spin or dip method. A further top coat can be applied for addtional corrsion resistance, improved torquing or colour. The Zn-Al coating is now specified by several car companies.Similar Zn-Al coatings are called Geomet, Magni or Delta Tone.
506 – A Gun-Kote PTFE/PFA barrier coating. Parts removed from the salt spray test after 2000 hrs show no signs of corrosion (see below). 506 is spray applied.
Dry Film Lubricant
Certain applications call for dry lubrication (i.e.the absence of oils or greases ) to decrease friction and to prevent seizing. Dry Lube coatings incorporate a lubricating solid such as Molybdenum Disulphide, Graphite, Boron Nitrite or PTFE (Teflon). The most common dry film coatings incorporate Molybdenum Disulphide (MoS2) which show a friction coefficient of less than 0.1. Gunkote 16/2 and Gunkote SCK show low friction properties AND excellent corrosion resistance (1100 hrs NSS). The Gun-Kote SCK is available in linited coloures whereas the 16/2 is available in a variety of colours. The TDCC is an authorized applicator of Gun-Kote. Please enquire with us about your specific application.
Non-stick coatings are found on applications ranging from cookware to industrial valves. Commonly PTFE (Teflon) is used but other coatings such as PFA, Xylan®, etc. In addition to release properties the coatings also provide good corrosion resistance plus good lubricity on fasteners. Please speak to us about your exact requirement. The range of non-stick coatings is vast!
Other Specialized Coatings
We can offer many other surface protection coatings. From acid resistant coatings used in mining to electrically conductive coatings for non-static applications to high temperature coatings. Please contact us about your requirements.
