TYPES OF COATINGS
The families of coatings and some of the advantages they can offer are illustrated below:
Coatings based on ceramic nanoparticles represent the industrial development of ceramic coatings used in cookware and bakeware. Zocca offers a product line described as “carbon ceramics” that can be applied on metals and metal alloys, plastics (e.g. rapid prototyping parts), carbon fibre and others
Anti-stick properties and low friction coefficient, transparent finish.
The defence sector, application at very high temperatures (even over 1000°C).
Different fluoropolymer-based coatings, both monolayer and multilayer, are available: PTFE, PFA, FEP ETFE, HALAR. Coatings loaded with other resins are also available for even higher performance. Zocca obtained the qualification of Licensed Industrial Applicator from Du Pont de Nemours, a global leading company for fluoropolymers.
Outstanding non-stick behaviour, low friction coefficient, excellent thermal resistance, cryogenic stability, chemical resistance, water repellency, high dielectric strength.
Suitable for food contact applications according to the European and American standards (FDA).
Multilayer Ceramic + fluoropolymer coatings consist of a lower ceramic layer applied with Thermal Spray technology, and an upper fluoropolymeric layer.
Outstanding wear resistance
Welding rods, parts subject to high stresses.
Coatings in polyurethanes and silicon rubbers, can be created through casting and spray or brush painting.
Wear resistance, protection against impact, increase of grip, noise reduction, excellent non-stick properties, available in a variety of colours and hardnesses.
Situations in which grip strength is required, glues and adhesive tapes, vibratory mould cups, paper industry, ceramics processing, textile industry, pharmaceutical packaging machines, food contact applications according to the European and American standards.
The additive grades with PTFE or other fluoropolymers combine the sliding properties of fluorinated coatings with the wear resistance typical of PEEK polymer; the FDA certifications that accompany them allow their application in all fields.
High wear and abrasion resistance, excellent release properties, continuous use possible till 260° C.
Food contact applications according to the American standards (FDA), multisectoral applications.
These coatings are applied either via electrostatic painting or through immersion in a fluidized bed. The latter technique consists of introducing the preheated part into a tank filled with the raw coating material as fine powder.
Excellent dielectric strength, very good chemical resistance against a wide range of substances, available in a variety of colours, thickness adjustment up to a few tenths of a millimetre.
Electrical insulation, surface protection.
Polyamide 11 coatings can be applied either via electrostatic painting or through immersion in a fluidized bed. They are obtained from powders of 100% vegetable origin.
High wear resistance, very good impact properties, outstanding chemical resistance to grease, hydrocarbons, acids, bases and salts, outstanding resistance to weathering and UV rays, suitable for food contact applications.
Automotive, fluids transportation, textile industry, food sector, pharmaceutical and medical industry, urban furniture.
Coatings in modified Polyolefins are obtained from fine powders through immersion in a fluidized bed. These coatings can withstand significant impact, extreme weather conditions, chemical attack, corrosion and atmospheric pollutants.
Excellent adhesion on metals, good insulating properties, resistance to abrasive wear and impact, available in a variety of colours
Fence rods and panels, signboards, street furniture, balustrades, pipes for fluid transportation (also for drinking water), cable supports and sheaths, garden furniture, gutter supports and metal items in general.
