The advantages of anti-abrasion coatings and treatments
Especially in mechanical sectors, anti-abrasion coatings are used to give systems higher performance and wear resistance, while also reducing operational noise.
One consideration is that transporting materials such as paper, plastic films and adhesive tapes through industrial machinery at high speeds in the packaging, nonwoven fabrics and paper converting sectors causes constant, prolonged abrasion in most plants.
Consequences of machinery abrasion
In the long run, this phenomenon inevitably and negatively affects the initial investment, but it can also cause production to stop, with the resulting loss of company profits.
This causes an unacceptable impact for the company budget, especially in a global market where competition is becoming more intense and fierce. There is a solution to this problem and it lies within everyone’s reach, because inexpensive anti-abrasion coatings are now available. In fact, the first step is to find effective protection against abrasion.
Anti-abrasion coatings: types and advantages
One of the practical advantages of professional anti-abrasion coatings is that they are easy to apply and if they wear out, there is no need to interrupt production for long, with a quick startup afterwards.
Anti-abrasion coatings consisting of a combination of thermal spraying and special polymers also have a secondary effect that is no less important, in that they reduce noise by reducing mechanical shock and vibrations.
