Benefits of Anti-Corrosion Coatings
Corrosion-resistant coatings add protection to your metal surfaces that not only protect your equipment in the short term but also help keep them functioning at a high level in the long term. The goal of anti-corrosion coatings is to extend the lifespan of your equipment, and that is the number one benefit of these coatings.
These coatings reduce repair costs on your machinery, prevent operating losses that come with equipment repair or replacement, and can even help you protect your employees and avoid legal liability issues.
What are the Best Anti-Corrosion Coatings?
There are a lot of great anti-corrosion coatings, many of which are offered at Coating Systems. One such coating is Xylan, a fluoropolymer that is one of the more popular coatings offered by Coating Systems. We also offer fluorinated ethylene propylene, or FEP, which is very comparable to PTFE. The biggest difference being a higher resistance to abrasions and friction.
There are also a variety of other anti-corrosion coatings that offer more specialized functions. For example, phenolic coatings are ideal in low pH applications that operate in a high-temperature environment. There is also Halar, offered at Coating Systems, which is resistant to most chemicals while also boasting a higher resistance to impacts and abrasions.
