Coating Processes for Mechanical Parts in North America
All types of process can use metal coatings, depending on what mechanical properties you want for your parts. However, HVAF projection allows the densest coatings on the market, exceeding conventional HVOF systems.
WIDE RANGE OF CARBIDE AND METAL COATINGS
These coatings are used to rebuild worn parts. It is also possible to rebuild a part using a metal coating, then apply a carbide finish.
METALLIZATION WITH METALLURGICAL LINKS
Through this process, we have the ability to create more flexible metallic coatings that can withstand wide temperature variations while maintaining excellent properties against corrosion and abrasion.
EGI Industries provides the following coating materials:
This ultra-high-temperature system facilitates the application of ceramics and other materials. Ceramic coatings have excellent properties against corrosion and high temperature, and as a thermal barrier.
- Alumina oxide
- Zirconium oxide
- Chromium oxide
- Titan oxide and other
- Stainless steel
- Brass and bronze
- Hard metals
- Tungsten carbide coatings
- Chromium carbide coatings and other
The processes we offer can solve all kinds of wear:
- Insulation or electrical conductivity and other
We repair and reconstitute metallic parts according to mechanical application tolerances.
Our laboratory research and development allows us to design innovative spray processes to provide more durable coatings with consistent quality.
In addition, we analyse samples for large-scale production and provide wear analysis and adhesion tests to continually improve our coatings.
We have the equipment to conduct an analysis of existing parts with a view to the consistency of results and improvement.
With over 20 years of experience in the field, EGI Industries has a department that specializes in automated application of thermal coatings to extend the life of critical industrial mechanical parts. EGI Industries serves various types of industries at all stages from prototyping to high-volume parts production. EGI Industries acquired an ultra modern thermal spray system that builds coatings with exceptional properties. We are equipped with a metallography laboratory to conduct process analysis to ensure quality consistency, and reliability.
In addition, EGI Industries’, services are based on internal and external R&D to create, improve and develop processes that serve to provide solutions tailored to the needs of each and every client. It is also one way in which we respect one of our biggest corporate values: being open to innovation.
With machining and finishing, EGI Industries offers turnkey solutions for all of your failing, and wearing parts inside your equipment. Our process is quite unique. Clients in various industries mostly all experience parts and equipment failures such as valves, pumps, air locks, shafts and so forth; all of which could not withstand either the chemicals being used, temperature or abrasive materials they are in contact with. Replacing parts, and equipment is extremely costly and not forgetting the critical and expensive downtime that is incurred.

PFA (perfluoroalkoxy) nonstick coatings melt and flow during baking to provide nonporous films. PFA offers the additional benefits of higher continuous use temperature (260°C/500°F), film thicknesses up to 1,000 micrometers (40 mils), and greater toughness than PTFE or FEP. This combination of properties makes PFA an excellent choice for a wide variety of uses, especially those involving chemical resistance.
PTFE (polytetrafluoroethylene) nonstick coatings are two-coat (primer/topcoat) systems. These products have the highest operating temperature of any fluoropolymer (260°C/500°F), an extremely low coefficient of friction, good abrasion resistance, and good chemical resistance.
FEP (fluorinated ethylene propylene copolymer) nonstick coatings melt and flow during baking to provide nonporous films. These coatings provide excellent chemical resistance. In addition to low friction, FEP coatings have excellent nonstick properties. Maximum use temperature is 204°C/400°F.
ETFE is a copolymer of ethylene and tetrafluoroethylene and is also sold under the Tefzel® trademark. Although not fully fluorinated, ETFE has excellent chemical resistance and can operate continuously at 149°C/300°F. This resin is the toughest of the fluoropolymers and can be applied at film builds up to 2,000 micrometers (80 mils) to provide a highly durable finish.
These solvent-based liquid coatings are formulated with special blends of fluoropolymers and other high-performance resins to improve toughness and abrasion resistance. Because the film components stratify during baking, most of the fluoropolymer properties (such as low friction and nonstick character) are retained. The resins provide adhesion and abrasion resistance.
Plastisols are fluid forms of vinyl plastic and PVC. Plastisols are very versatile, offering numerous application and processing possibilities. Cured (or fused) plastisol has the same basic physical properties commonly associated with other vinyls: flexibility, toughness, outdoor stability, antistatic, abrasion and chemical resistance.
Rilsan®’s outstanding properties are due to its compact microscopic crystalline structure with ringed spherulites. Its versatility with many different properties makes it suitable for use in a wide range of applications which require high performances in extreme environment conditions.
Halar® ECTFE, a copolymer of ethylene and chlorotrifluoroethylene, is a semi-crystalline melt processable partially fluorinated polymer. Halar® ECTFE has proven to be an effective solution for process engineers in search of long-term chemical, temperature, corrosion and permeation resistance.
Powder coating is a decorative and durable finish applied to products used by consumers and industry. It is available in virtually any color. The finish is rust free, scratch resistant and cost efficient.
Plascoat thermoplastic coating powders protect metal for hundreds of different applications throughout the world ranging from dishwasher baskets to fences.
Polyarmor® is a multi-purpose thermoplastic powder coating that utilizes polyethylene copolymer chemistry to meet and exceed a wide range of performance attributes including ultra high adhesion, impact and corrosion resistance, ultra violet (UV) protection, and graffiti resistance.
Polyarmor thermoplastic powder coatings are also PVC-free, contain no phthalates, and heavy metal compliant, making Polyarmor the best choice for exceptional performance and environmental safety.
