Abrasion Resistant Coatings
By definition, abrasion is a wearing, grinding, or rubbing away by friction. Abrasion is the number one killer of parts and machinery in the world. The DECC Company works closely with manufacturers, U.S. Government agencies, and Fortune 500 Companies to solve issues through the application of ceramic and PTFE coating services.
Ceramic & PTFE Coating Services
There are a wide variety of coating solutions depending on substrate, operating environment, and process.
Ceramic coatings are just one possible solution to an abrasion problem. They can be applied to your part with either a thick or a thin layer depending on how severe the friction is. For example, in art class you may apply a thin glaze of ceramic coating onto a clay jar. After baking in a high temperature oven, the end result would be both decorative and functional. The ceramic coating would resist scratches and, depending on the color dye, it would be vibrant and shiny.
Non-Stick coatings, also known as (PTFE), were designed to solve abrasion issues due to its incredible non-stick capabilities. In fact, the "Guiness Book of World Records" gives it the title of "slipperiest substance on earth." Some of the features that make PTFE coating a great choice are its:
- Wear resistance
- Dry lubrication
- Temperature resistance
- Non-stick properties
The addition of PTFE to a part will drastically reduce friction caused by one part rubbing against another. The reduced friction will lead to longer life of the product, easier servicing or cleaning of the parts, all while increasing performance.
