- About Metal Plating ?
- Usage Areas
Metal Plating is turning metals in the fiber format-by heat and pressure-to fused and accelarated metal drops to cover the surface and is forming a concentrated protective layer on the surface. When zinc is covered by this method it provides a corrosion protection with the effect of galvanic for a long period of time and the corrosion products produced on zinc/steel surface have also protective effect.. It involves melting zinc wire and using a flame gun or electric arc gun to spray the molten metal on to the surface to be protected.
Our fibers are delivered to customers with international standarts and packages. The measures of our wire that have high quality for corrosion protection performance can be changable by your request. Quality of our wires are controlled in our existing labarotories.
In these applications corrosion protection is provided without any maintenance for many years.
- • Construction Sector; In the plating of bridges,road barriers and steel constructions
- • In the ship
- • Agricultural equipments
- • Cast-iron pipes for running or waste water mains.
- • Gas tanks and tubes
- • The nature of the equipment makes it deal for either factory or site application and coatings can be deposited in ambient conditions totally unsuited to other methods of protective treatment.
- • Thick anti-corrosive paint systems are generally unnecessary but the texture of “bare” sprayed coatings provides an excellent “key” for subsequent paint treatment.
- • The sprayed metal surface maintains the efficiency of friction grip areas and ensures their effectiveness throught the life of the structure.
- • The surface being sprayed remains cool. Consequently there is no risk of heat distortion or metallurgical degradation of load bearing steel structures. Sealed tubular or hollow sections can be coated externally without danger.
- • There is no distinct limit to the thickness of sprayed coatings. Zinc may be sprayed to over 3 mm and unlike galvanising, thickness may be varied from place to place to provide protection in critical areas.
- • Sprayed zinc coatings give long lives in mostnaturally occuring environments. Ten years to first maintenance is common and over twenty years may be readily achieved with the appropriate system.
- • Although bare metal sprayed coatings give long lives they may be sealed to extend the life time or the enhance visual appearence.
- • Even if a sprayed deposit is locally damaged, the sacrificial action particularly of zinc prevents corrosion from edges and discontinuities. It may also delay the onset of rusting of structures which have been neglected.
- • Properly applied sprayed metal coatings are more robust than paint systems and are consequently able to withstand rogher usage.
- • Sprayed metal coatings may be handled immediately after treatment. There are no proctacted drying times and factory floor space can be more efficiently utilised
- • The process itself is simple involving only two or three stages;spraying is preceded by grit blasting and may be followed by sealing of the deposit. This simplicity makes quality control relatively easy and offers fewer stages for errors to occur.
- • There is almost no limitation on the size of component or structure which can be treated.
- • The materials are simple to apply using.
