Insulating and conducting coatings
In EX environments, sparks can create hazardous situations. By using a conducting or anti-static coating one can eliminate sources of ignition and avoid reactions or explosions. We apply coatings that conduct electrical currents and make sure that the coated components will not get electrically charged. In this way we avoid discharging which can lead to sparking.
The whole point of an insulating coating is that it does not conduct. Insulating coatings are widely used for corrosion protection. We apply these coatings using fluidized beds or by electrostatic powder coating. We check the protective layers using a test voltage of 9 volts per μm for potential cracks and wholes. That’s how we guarantee an optimum result.
