Polymer Surface Treatments That Protect Parts Against Harsh Conditions

When a part’s operating environment is too demanding for conventional coatings, our polymer surface treatments are up to the challenge. We develop coatings using a variety of polymers such as PTFE, PFA, FEP as well as dry lubricants that impart temperature, corrosion and chemical resistance, non-stick/release properties and low COF to surfaces, depending on their composition.

Here’s how we create the best polymer surface treatment to protect part surfaces: After properly cleaning the substrate, we apply polymers using the paint-type technology and cure them at elevated temperatures. This process creates a tough, inert finish that gives ferrous, non-ferrous and mixed metal parts exceptional resistance to difficult conditions that can otherwise damage parts.

Engineered Coatings Boost Throughput, Solve Problems in Packaging Applications

Keeping packaging equipment up and running is top priority for engineers and plant personnel. Faced with ever-increasing productivity benchmarks based on fast and efficient operation, packaging engineers must continually fight against issues such as sticking, premature wear, abrasion and corrosion. To eliminate these challenges, nano-engineered coatings are being used to protect machine components and solve performance problems in food, pharmaceutical and consumer goods packaging.

High-Tech, Space-Age Metal Surface Enhancement Coating Solves Wear and Release Problems for Pine Instrument Company's Gyratory Compaction Asphalt Testers

The development of computer-controlled asphalt testing equipment to simulate and then quantify and predict the punishment which various asphalt mixes will be able to endure when used to pave actual roads has placed enormous burdens on the components of that test equipment. To stand up to simulations of heavy road wear, equipment designers have had to look beyond the conventional and to seek out materials that could endure tremendous stress. That was precisely the position in which the worldwide, leading supplier of such equipment, Pine Instrument Company of Grove City, Pennsylvania, found itself.
