Part Performance Coatings
Optimize Equipment with Performance Coatings
With our wide range of capabilities ASB Industries can help improve part performance in an effort to prevent wear problems in typical machinery to optimize your existing equipment’s performance. Our engineering and maintenance specialists utilize a vast array of thermal spray techniques and materials to incorporate with existing equipment designs. ASB Industries can product dramatic results by working with engineers to incorporate surface enhancement technologies for a variety of materials. From hard tungsten carbide coatings, high temperature ceramics to corrosion resistant nickel based alloys and special materials such as Titanium, Tantalum and Niobium ASB Industries has the solution to improve your equipment and parts performance. It is also important to remember that many components require special surfaces such as mating seal materials, gripping to product, high dimensional accuracy; which ASB Industries is able to pre and post machine and grind components required to match engineered dimensional and surface specifications. ASB job tracking, record keeping and inspections are kept for many years to provide accurate data for enhanced surfacing techniques for optimized equipment and part performance.
Enhance Electrical Resistance or Conductivity - Ceramic Coatings & Thermal Spray Coatings
Equipment performance can be enhanced by eliminating stray electrical currents or enhancing electrical conductivity of many components within a system. Ceramic coatings are typically used for shielding and copper based materials are used for conductivity. High Pressure Cold Spray copper provides an oxide free layer that has properties close to wrought pure copper. Simple but innovative surfacing technologies can be utilized to shield stray frequencies; most commonly used in the military. ASB considers other environmental issues to choose materials and process parameters to optimized coating performance.
Reduce High-Temperature Damage - Thermal Spray Coatings
Thermal Spray coatings can protect the integrity of parts exposed to high temperatures during production, as well as reduce stress corrosion cracking associated with high-temperature altering mechanisms. Selected coatings can also reduce oxide pick-up for rolls used in the glass and steel industries. ASB’s development of high temperature enhancement sealing treatments-from reactive heat treated layers to sophisticated nano sealers resist high temperature cycling and in many cases prevent damaging build-up on surfaces that may affect product quality; such as Furnace rolls used to produce high strength steel strip. From molten metals to high temperature processing, ASB Industries will work with your current equipment to discuss possible solutions in difficult environments.
Enhance Corrosion Resistance - Corrosion Coatings
From simple atmospheric corrosion to severe oxidizing vapors and liquids, Thermal Spray coating can protect substrate structures from severe corrosion damage. Pre- and post-treatment may be utilized to develop a successful corrosion protection system. Corrosion coatings can be cured in our large high-temperature oven. From Nickel based high temperature corrosion resistant coatings to zinc and aluminum cover a wide range of applications to increase longevity of components. The cost of corrosion is studied throughout the world and thermal spray protective coatings have been utilized since the commercialization of the processing during mid 20th century industrial development throughout the world.
