Thermal Spray Coating Specifications
For Ferrous & Non-Ferrous Metals
Suitable Coating Materials
Thermal Spray Coatings can be successfully applied to most ferrous and non-ferrous metals, including steel, stainless steel, aluminum, copper, and titanium.
Coating thickness depends on the specific Series 900 coating being applied, and may range from 0.003 inch to 0.020 inch per surface. The majority of our 900 Series coatings are applied between 0.005 inch and 0.015 inch per surface, with a standard processing tolerance of ±0.0025 inch. Tighter tolerances are attainable and may be held to ±0.001 inch per side with post coating grinding or lapping.
Surface Finish (RMS)
The surface finish (RMS) will depend on the specific Series 900 coating applied, and will typically range from 200 to 300 micro-inches. RMS values as low as 30 micro-inches are achievable with post-coating grinding and lapping efforts.
Hardness values will range based upon the specific coating system applied, and typical values can range between 45 and 90 Rc.
Wear & Abrasion Resistance
Coatings exhibit superior resistance to wear and abrasion, and may be applied in greater thickness to further enhance product life.
Chemical & Corrosion Resistance
Series 900 coatings are resistant to most chemicals including acids, alkalis, and solvents, while exhibiting strong corrosion resistance.
Release (Non-Stick) Properties
Series 900 coatings are engineered to provide excellent non-stick properties in aggressive application environments where traditional fluoropolymer coatings have limited life. Our Endura® 970 has a long-standing history of success for applications requiring non-stick from pressure-sensitive adhesives.
Operating Temperature Range
Our Thermal Spray Coatings will withstand severe temperature extremes without any loss in physical properties. The majority of our 900 Series coatings operate in environments from cryogenic temperatures to 600° F. Specific variations of our Series 900 Coatings are suitable for use environments up to 4,500° F. In addition to their high heat stability, they also afford excellent thermal transfer properties.
Series 900 coatings are nonconductive. While these coatings are not often sought for their dielectric properties some are electrically insulating. Values will range depending on the specific coating system selected and the thickness applied.
