Industrial Coatings

Specialty Polymers for Industrial Coatings

Ultra and High-Performance Polymers for Coatings

Our powders and water-based solutions offer exceptional chemical resistance and adhesion, improved scratch resistance and thermal stability.

Typical Applications

  • Corrosion resistant coatings
  • High-temperature coatings
  • Primers for non-stick coatings
  • Abrasion resistant coatings

Key features

  • Long-lasting performance in aggressive environments
  • Better adhesion to metallic and polymeric substrates
  • Excellent chemical and oxidative resistance
  • Micropowders for improved processing
  • Water-based formulations

Torlon® AI (polyamide-imide) – thermoplastic, amorphous polymers available in water-soluble versions that possess exceptional mechanical, thermal, chemical resistance as well as wear-resistant properties. They are inherently non-flammable, have outstanding electrical properties, and possess enormous temperature stability from cryogenic to 300°C and some grades are FDA compliant.

Veradel® polyethersulfone (PESU) – is a water-dispersible polymer powder that is FDA-compliant with excellent quality and product consistency. It has an HDT of 204°C, is inherently non-flammable, optically clear and provides good chemical resistance to strong acids and bases. Its range of molecular weights and low viscosity allows for easier processing. It offers good adhesive properties to a wide range of metals, including stainless steel and aluminum.

KetaSpire® PEEK (polyetheretherketone) – is a semi-crystalline thermoplastic that is FDA-compliant and has outstanding chemical resistance to organics, acids, bases and steam/hot water. It is an ideal material for applications that are exposed to extreme conditions such as wear, abrasion and high temperatures up to 315°C. It is available in both powders and fine powders.

Radel® PPSU (polyphenylsulfone) – super-tough transparent polymer that is FDA compliant with an HDT of 405°F (207°C), excellent chemical resistance and the unique ability to be steam sterilized without significant loss of properties.

Xydar® LCP (liquid crystal polymer) – high-temperature, liquid crystal polymer with an HDT of 570°F (300°C), and extremely high chemical resistance when applied as a thermally-sprayed powder coating.


High Purity Coatings

Clean Room process equipment must be constructed of high purity, chemically-inert and fire-safe materials.

Hyflon® PFA/MFA® powders are high purity products that can be used for anti-stick coatings for use in pharmaceutical and high purity process equipment where good release properties and high purity and excellent temperature and chemical resistance are required.

Halar® ECTFE is used as a lining and coating for ultrapure water systems in the pharmaceutical and chemical industry.

Halar® ECTFE has complete chemical compatibility handling the full pH range and is ideal for alkaline chemistries.

Moreover, it meets the demands for fire-safe, non-fire propagating plastics.

It is approved and listed to the FM Global 4910 Clean Room Fire Safety Protocol and has been tested and meets the UL 2360 Fire-Safe Clean Room Materials Standard.


Exhaust Duct Coatings

Halar® ECTFE fluoropolymer coatings provide outstanding properties:

  • Chemical resistance
  • Barrier properties
  • Outperform plastic and FRP duct with improved safety and corrosion resistance
  • Reduction or elimination of the buildup of salt deposits and debris that can reduce airflow approved by Factory Mutual for use in fume and smoke exhaust systems, without sprinklers.

Typical application

Halar® ECTFE coated stainless steel exhaust duct systems are designed to handle a wide range of corrosive exhaust streams found in a variety of industrial applications, including clean rooms.
