Industrial coatings provide a wide range of benefits and product performance enhancements to many markets and applications. Industrial coatings are used on products for many industries and end-use sectors, including electronics, aerospace, automotive and transportation vehicles, marine, mining, power generation, building and construction, machinery, and equipment.
The Many Benefits of Industrial Coatings
Specialized industrial coatings reduce maintenance and downtime and extend product life, providing many benefits, including:
- Resistance to rust and corrosion
- Improving product functionality and aesthetics
- Electrical insulation
- Chemical resistance
- Low friction and abrasion resistance
- Nonstick properties
Resistance to Rust and Corrosion
Coatings help to prevent rust and corrosion to extend product life, functionality, and appearance. Rust and corrosion prevention enhance product integrity, benefiting many applications such as extending equipment life, refurbishing equipment, and meeting standards for food safety organizations. Corrosion resistance is also critical on building and construction materials located near salt water or exposed to snow and ice.
Improving Product Functionality and Aesthetics
Industrial coatings create a sleek surface, protecting the substrate and maintaining product integrity. This enhances part functionality and prolongs aesthetic appearance. This is important for many industrial markets and applications, including vehicle and transportation equipment, building materials, machinery and equipment, and more.
Coatings can provide electrical insulation properties that prevent arcs and static buildup and can isolate parts from electrical currents passing through. These properties are important in products such as machinery and equipment in the printing industry, beverage filling equipment, and other markets.
Coatings with chemical-resistant properties are important in many applications to prevent contamination, corrosion, sticking, and to protect product integrity. Chemical resistance is required in many markets, such as tanks, valves, mixers, containers, and piping, used in many industries such as pharmaceutical, chemical manufacturing, agricultural products, food and beverage, and more.
Maintain Low Surface Friction
Industrial coatings help to prevent wear and enhance product longevity with coatings that promote low friction. This can prevent seizing and reduce abrasion and maintenance in many applications, such as delivery or product chutes and conveyors, actuator screws, control valve assemblies, and more.
Provides Nonstick Surfaces
Coatings with nonstick properties are often used in the food and beverage industry and increase product life with nonstick properties that are beneficial in many markets such as food and beverage and medical.
Industrial coatings make many products made of metal or other materials more visually appealing, more durable, and resistant to rust, corrosion, and abrasion. Regardless of the industry, industrial coatings protect equipment and products to improve your return on investment. Partnering with an experienced custom coatings manufacturer will help companies to realize maximum potential advantages with reliable adhesion and process optimization.
