Chesterton’s ARC coating program delivers superior properties to protect against erosion, corrosion abrasiveness and chemical degradation. Modern industry has a strong need for long-term protection of equipment against external influences resulting in increased reliability of installations, a clean and safe environment and a loss of production. When concrete or metal parts are exposed to aggressive industrial conditions, you can rely on Chesterton’s composite coatings.
ARC against abrasiveness;
Pumps, mixers, stirrers, fans, piping, all equipment that comes into contact with liquids and especially when solids are part of the fluid there is abrasiveness or wear due to the movement of these solid parts on the surface. This abrasiveness leads to huge costs in the industry, and the machine downtime is often decisively influenced by this phenomenon. There is a variety of solutions for this wear and tear. Abrasion resistant rubbers, welding, ceramic tiles, replacement with hard metals during repair are all optional improvements. These not offer always the right solution and always very expensive. ARC composite coatings provide a very durable and smooth surface. The adhesion is very strong and the coatings can be applied both in wet and dry conditions. ARC has various excellent coatings against abrasion. Below are the different systems. Which choice is best for you, can be discussed during a consultation.
ARC against chemical attack;
Chemicals are used in almost every industry. The protection of equipment against chemical degradation has many possibilities. However, the diversity of chemicals, the different temperatures, the concentration in combination with temperatures determines the chemical degradation of the equipment. Not only the chemical resistance of protective coatings is important but also the permeability and adhesion. The ARC composite coatings are made under vacuum and without solvents. Therefore, they offer protection for a long time against many chemicals, both in gas and liquid form.
ARC against erosion / corrosion;
Erosion/corrosion phenomena in pumps are very common. Not only does this cause much wear, but this wear has an additional effect, namely the waste of energy. By applying a wear-resistant layer in the pump, the wear is prevented, and the pump becomes more efficient. The coating has a very low friction coefficient, resulting in a proven reduction of the energy consumption of about 5%.
