Various finishes are available to improve metal components are utilized in a range of different industries. Prior to choosing a particular type of finish for your material, make some initial considerations first – in particular, the type of impact and wearing the material is going to undergo during its service life. In addition to the standard type of coatings available for metal and plastic, there are also other specialty coatings that fulfill other requirements, including hard anodizing coatings, anti-rust coatings, nickel boron plating, and powder coating. At Secoa Technology, we provide a diverse range of protective coating products for various industrial applications.
Industries That Benefit
Some of the different industries that benefit from these types of specialized coatings include automotive, firearm, aerospace, and more. The type of coating that you should apply will largely depend on the type of metal involved and the specific application. Additional benefits can be obtained from these coatings – in particular to machinery parts.
Some of the specialty coatings that are available for particular industry applications include:
Hard Anodized Coatings
If you need increased resistance to corrosion and wear, hard anodized coatings may be the answer. This type of coating causes a thicker layer of oxide to rest on the metal and enhances the ability of glues primers, paints to adhere as well.
Resistance to wear, chips, stating, impact, scratches, solvents, and salt spray can be obtained with powder coating. This type of coating is cost effective has a long service life, and maintains color durability.
Nickel Boron Plating
Offering excellent protection against corrosion and wear, nickel boron plating produces a texture that acts as a buffer between two mating or sliding surfaces – this inhibits drag and friction.
The specialty coatings mentioned above increase lifespan and durability of metal and plastic parts. Simultaneously, they offer excellent abrasion and friction resistance qualities. With proper use and maintenance of these coatings, you can significantly reduce repair and replacement costs due to the fact that surfaces are strengthened and protected against the deteriorating effects of corrosion.
