Powder Sizing for Consistent Flow
Industrial coatings provide a covering that can be applied to the surface of an object, usually referred to as the substrate. They are specifically engineered for their protective and functional properties. The focus of an industrial coating is wear protection and refurbishment.
Coating Process Considerations
There are a wide range of things to consider before starting an industrial coating project. One of the major considerations is the applied thickness level of the coating. There are processes that are used to maintain control, including equipment that automatically applies the coatings.
Industrial Coating Uses & Benefits
The main reason that surfacing materials are used is to preserve the object underneath the coating. Industrial coatings are highly important, especially when your main concern is to protect your item from wear. Additionally, one of the largest benefits of industrial coatings is that they will extend the overall lifetime of the materials that are being covered. The coatings process can ultimately save significant maintenance costs.

Slik-Met™ Metal Matrix Industrial Coating
ASB Industries now offers Slik-Met™ release and wear resistant metal matrix coatings, which can be applied to surfaces including rolls to reduce pick-up in higher temperature applications. The unique surface of Slik-Met™ assists in releasing materials transferred by high production processing.
In addition, the non-stick type release of this surfacing material is hard and wear resistant and can be combined with additional cleaning devices such as rolls. The surfacing materials are applied using ASB Industries HVOF equipment, which provides the correct parameters and process temperatures for wrought material to maintain critical particle features.
