Synergistic coatings for heavy impact parts

Aerospace and transportation parts are among the most expensive to produce and maintain. So it's essential to protect them from wear and weather. Magnaplate offers a variety of wear and corrosion-resistant coatings that can maximize the life of these valuable components.

Technical features

  • Permanent lubricity
  • Chemical and corrosion resistance
  • Wear, galling and abrasion resistance
  • High temperature
  • Tolerant of impact forces
  • Non-stick, release properties
Coatings for heavy impact

Application examples

Hydraulic Jacks

Hydraulic jacks that support aircrafts during maintenance operations must withstand the corrosive nature of weather and the chemicals used during operations. Coating these parts in Nedox creates a harder-than-steel surface and adds permanent lubricity, abrasion and galling resistance and protection from corrosion and chemical attack.

Military Aircraft Rotors

Stainless steel hydraulic rotary actuators for military aircraft demand a high hardness to counteract strong friction and wear from hostile environments. A thin layer of Magnagold® can increase surface hardness and resist wear and abrasion up to 20 times better wear and abrasion resistance than stainless steel.

Fuel Governors

Poor fuel quality with a high sulfur content and particulates can ruin aluminum parts used in vehicles in remote locations. Magnaplate HCR can provide the protection needed to keep the vehicles rolling in challenging conditions.
