Industrial Ceramic Coatings

Industrial Ceramic Coatings

Industrial ceramic coatings are used extensively to provide durability, hardness, scratch resistance, flexibility and chemical resistance to a wide range of applications. They can be applied to a variety of surfaces to improve the functionality of products and parts ranging from nuts, bolts, and golf clubs to firearms, engine parts, and heavy equipment.

Ceramic is a hard, brittle, heat-resistant and corrosion-resistant material made by shaping and then firing a nonmetallic mineral, such as clay, at a high temperature. The crystallinity of ceramic coatings can range from highly oriented to semi-crystalline, vitrified, or completely amorphous, like glass. Varying crystallinity and an electron composition enable most ceramic materials to be good thermal and electrical insulators. With a large range of possible compositions for ceramic coatings (e.g. nearly all of the elements, nearly all types of bonding, and all levels of crystallinity), there is a wide range of performance attributes, including hardness, toughness, electrical conductivity, etc.

Industrial ceramic coatings can offer a variety of useful properties including high melting temperature, high hardness, poor conductivity, chemical resistance and low ductility. Glass is not generally considered a ceramic because of its amorphous (non-crystalline) character, however, its mechanical properties are similar.

Traditional ceramic raw materials include clay minerals such as kaolinite. More recent materials include aluminum oxide. Today’s advanced ceramics include silicon carbide and tungsten carbide. Both are valued for their abrasion resistance and hence find use in applications such as the wear plates of crushing equipment in mining operations, medicine, electrical, electronics industries and body armor.

High Temp Exhaust Ceramic Coatings

High temperature industrial ceramic coatings can increase the maximum use temperature of a surface for protection in extreme heat circumstances. Uses include: Exhaust systems, headers, turbos, manifolds, furnaces, and industrial.

Lubrication Ceramic Coatings

Industrial ceramic coatings can provide excellent lubricity to surfaces in order to reduce wear, improve frictionless movement, enhance radiopacity, and protect against abrasion. The coefficient of friction for these ceramic coatings are similar to that of Teflon™ coatings.

Corrosion Resistant Ceramic Coatings

Industrial ceramic coatings offer unrivaled corrosion and chemical resistance. They provide excellent durability and are perfect for tight tolerance applications. Common uses include automotive, firearms, aerospace, knives, eye wear, consumer electronics, wearables, salt water applications and much more.

Abrasion Resistant Ceramic Coatings

Industrial ceramic coatings can provide unmatched abrasion, corrosion and chemical resistance. Common uses include automotive, firearms, aerospace, knives, eye wear, consumer electronics, wearables, industrial valves, oil & gas, salt water applications and much more.
