Plasmadize®

True Composite Surface Treatments That Outperform Conventional Spray Methods

Plasmadize is an enhanced thermal spray composite coating made up of a matrix of high-tech materials, including metals, ceramics, polymers and dry lubricants. This surface treatment creates a structurally stable, non-porous and moisture-proof surface, providing exceptional lubricity, wear resistance and mold release compared to conventional spray methods.

Resistance in salt spray testing ranges from 300 to 4,000 hours, depending on the polymer and substrate. The appropriate selection of infused polymer or another surface polymer provides a highly lubricious non-stick surface with a coefficient of friction (COF) as low as 0.13 on an 8 RMS surface.

You can use Plasmadize to restore or optimize older parts, or apply it cost-effectively to very large surfaces or parts. And, many Plasmadize coatings comply with USDA and FDA codes. Ideal applications include crimping jaws, conveyors, tension rolls, cylinder heads, extruders and feeder bowls.

Plasmadize Technical Advantages

Plasmadize provides superior properties compared to common coatings. It features:

  • Operating temperatures: -200°F (129°C) to 1,300°F (704°C)
  • Thicknesses from 0.002 to 0.010 inch
  • Hardnesses beyond the Rc scale
  • EWR as low as 0.1 mg per 1,000 cycles
  • Resistance to acids, alkalis, chlorides, most organic solvents, sulfites, thiosulfates and pulp bleaching chemicals
