Extreme Coatings' Encapsulation provides the ultimate in abrasion and corrosion resistance.
The low heat input during our coating process (350F, 175C) ensures no distortion and minimizes costly straightening or machining requirements. Our coatings are routinely applied over standard hard facing alloys.
Our standard coating thicknesses are .005” (.125 mm) for parts of diameter 36 mm and below and .010” (.25 mm) for larger parts. Diamond polishing after coating provides a super 6-10 RMS (uinch) (.2-.4 Ra Umeter) mirror surface finish. This surface finish aids in many ways; like less coefficient of friction, easier cleaning and purging and reduces the tendency for material to build up.
Full encapsulation is recommended for many items but some may not need full only partial when the wear and/or corrosion is excessive in specific areas. We will provide what is best for your application based on an evaluation.
The porosity of our finished coating layer is very low, less than 1 percent. This low porosity and the inert nature of the coating materials provides a very corrosion resistant surface.
Remember, we guarantee at least double the life of your most valuable parts!
