Coating Systems: Importance of Radiation Protection in Power Plants (Part 2)

Coating Systems on Radiation-Protective Coatings for Power Plants (Part 2) One significant use for coatings is in the nuclear power industry. The machines and systems in a power plant keep things running and provide large amounts of energy. A nuclear power plant can’t afford to have subpar coatings protecting their machines from corrosion and wear. Nuclear power also involves heavy amounts of radiation, and improper or poor coatings could be dangerous. In part one of our blog about coatings in power plants, we considered the dangers of industrial radiation and how coating helps. In part 2 of this Coating Systems blog, we talk about why good coatings…

Coating Systems: Radiation Protection in Power Plants (Part 1)

Coating Systems Explains the Importance of Radiation Protection in Power Plants (Part 1) At Coating Systems, we provide high-quality coating solutions for a variety of industries and applications. In this first of a two-part blog, we’ll discuss the importance of radiation protection in power plants, the specific dangers of industrial radiation, and how we can provide a viable solution for those seeking radiation protection to maintain safety standards. The Dangers of Radiation When radiation comes into contact with molecules in living cells, the cells can be damaged. If the radiation damages the DNA in a cell, it can become cancerous and cause all sorts of health problems.…

How to Apply Spin Coating

What is Spin Coating? Spin coating generally involves applying a thin layer of film across the surface of a substrate by coating a solution onto the desired material in a solvent while rotating. The high-speed rotation of the item you are coating results in centripetal force pulling the liquid coating into an even covering on your desired material. This results in a thin even covering on the targeted material. The uniformity of this method is an incredible benefit when applying a coating to any material. Spin Coating Techniques There are many different techniques within the spin coating “umbrella”. Two of the more popular methods include dynamic dispense…
