Surface Coating

Surface Coating

– ultimate endurance

Are you looking for the perfect surface coating solution that fits your needs?

Surface coating is an economical method to achieve high performance characteristics on exposed surfaces, e.g. by welding overlays or by thermal spraying.

A metal object can be surface coated on the exposed area to achieve high wear, corrosion resistance or thermal insulation. Surface coating can also be used to repair damaged parts. Complete part replacement is then unnecessary and this refurbishment effectively extends the lifetime of the part.

The common denominator for all of these applications is the need to achieve wear, corrosion, heat, abrasion and/or impact resistance. This combination of properties needs a dedicated surface coating powder formulation for the specific application.

Our powders are particularly suited to the needs of surface coating processes and applications such as powder welding, flame spraying, plasma spraying, HVOF (high
velocity oxy-fuel), HVAF (high velocity air-fuel), PTA (plasma transferred arc), laser cladding and cold spraying.

Coatings are today standard practice for many applications in a wide range of industries:

  • Agriculture
  • Automotive
  • Chemistry
  • Energy
  • Earth moving machines
  • General machinery
  • Glass mould
  • Marine
  • Paper and printing
  • Petrochemical
  • Plastic extrusion
  • Repair and replacement
  • Solid oxide fuel cells
  • Steel manufacture
  • Turbine industries
  • Oil and gas
  • Oilsands

Our brands stand for high quality and reliability in the global surface coating market

Our business is defined by our customer focus and customer partnerships, which have made us one of the most successful spray powder manufacturers in the world. Working with original equipmet manufacturers (OEM) is our tradition.

In order to meet customers' needs in coating processes, we pay particular attention to specific requirements of controlled chemistries, precisely defined grain forms and morphologies, as well as adjusted particle size distributions.

Over the past few decades. we have acquired the necessary knowledge of how to develop new materials and recycling processes, and how to improve the products we provide to our customers.

Rockit® 606/706 powders are designed to improve the performance of components operating in the toughest environments where impact and severe abrasive wear occur.

Metal powders contribute to sustainable development

Metal powder technology provides endless opportunities; not only does it enable our customers to reduce their material and energy consumption, but it also helps them use new and better techniques that make final products more efficient and less expensive.

We believe that the inherent power of metal powders can be utilised to a much larger extent than it is today. We are also convinced that metal powders can contribute to sustainable development. With metal powder solutions, we can contribute to solving many of society’s pressing challenges, such as resource scarcity and the need for renewable energy.
