Galvanic- and the semiconductor industry

In addition to machine components out off it’s own production processes, the galvanization industry also puts corrosion-resistant coatings on the auxiliary frames that the components are hung from. This industry often chooses protective layers that have both corrosion-resistance and insulating properties.

We apply high-quality corrosion-resistant fluoropolymers such as Halar®  and ETFE to machine components. These are applied in several layers to a pre-heated surface, ensuring that the metal components will last longer.

Frequently asked questions

An insulating coating will not conduct electrical current. A standard test voltage used to check the insulation tightness of a coating is 9V / μm.

These coatings are mainly applied by fluidized bed coating and electrostatic powder spraying.

Insulating coatings are mainly used as corrosion protection.

A conductive coating is able to conduct electrical current. Therefor these coatings themselves cannot be statically charged and no sparks or discharges can occur.

The main conductive coatings are:

  • Halar®. The black version is not only conductive, it also protects metals against a variety of chemicals. Due to the FDA approval this coating can also be used in the pharmaceutical or food industry. The non-stick properties of this coating are also good.
  • Xylan®. In addition to a conductive surface this relatively thin coating also offers a surface with very good non-stick properties.

Conductive coatings are used in EX environments. In such environments sparks can cause a reaction or explosion.
