Why Protective Coatings?
The purpose of protective coatings can be functional, decorative, or both. Depending on your project needs, the coating can cover the component completely or parts of your substrate. With Edmonton and its surroundings areas subjected to unexpected and drastic weather conditions, your equipment should be well protected to withstand our chilly winters. Protective coatings are thin and are applied to surfaces where there is not a continuous absorption. That way, protective coatings on your substrate will prevent rusting and shield against chemical attacks.
Benefits Of Protective Coatings
The encompassing benefit of protective coatings is to expand the lifespan of your substrates. By choosing the right protective coating, it ensures that your equipment and piping investments are properly protected against unnecessary oxidation and weathering. There are three great benefits to getting a protective coating.
- Prolong Structural Integrity
- Improve Value
- Better Maintenance
A key benefit to protective coatings is its ability to prolong structural integrity. Treating your substrate can help alleviate effects of agents that may significantly ruin its lifespan. As the oxidation process easily makes metals prone to corrosion, a protective coat will make the metal stronger to withstand such pressures. Regardless if you decide to sell your project in the future, your substrates should always have value. The value of your project comes from all the components that make up the finished work in which protective coatings play a crucial role. Lastly, as protective coatings prevent corrosion and wearing, it should provide for better maintenance of your project.
Our Protective Coating Service
At Wilcox High-Velocity Ltd. we are proud to offer our expert services in Protective Finishing and Coating. Our team of coating experts is trained and equipped to treat a variety of surfaces with the following materials and products:
- Tungsten Carbides
- Chromium Carbides
- Stainless Steel
- Spray & Fuse Colmonoy Carbide
- Super Alloys
Tungsten carbides coatings are primarily used in the steel and metal production industry. With a protective coat on this substrate, your project will not need as much maintenance. As such, you should see a decrease in maintenance costs and improved production quality. Similar to tungsten carbides, chromium carbides are ideal if you are looking for abrasion resistant and erosion resistant coatings. Stainless steel provides a solid finish and is a non-stick protective coating, thus making maintenance and cleaning much easier. Colmonoy carbide coatings are great for handling high temperatures and are often used in high cycles. Wilcox also offers cold metal spraying with the following metals above that achieves a seamless metal finish with the appearance of solid cast metal.
We are aware of the different methods of the coating process. Depending on your selected substrates, Wilcox will utilize the most effective process to obtain the optimal and desired result. Our cost effective Protective Coating solutions will help preserve your investments, and reduce the amount of corrosion, erosion, and general wear on your piping and equipment. The coating materials used to protect your equipment are of the highest standard and will ensure a tight and long-lasting seal.
