Preventing Corrosion and Machinery Failure
Corrosion is one of the causes of machine parts failure. It can be caused by several elements such as particulate residues, strong chlorides, water contamination, temperature extremes and environmental factors.
Water can cause iron surfaces to rust, which is why coatings for machinery are essential. In addition, water contamination also increases the oil oxidation rate, which can contribute to the degradation of machine parts. Applying heavy equipment coatings helps prevent this deterioration.
The formation of strong chlorides in your equipment can cause pitting corrosion. You can observe this in many stainless steel alloys. Effective commercial equipment coatings create a solid protective barrier that prevents chlorides from interacting with metal and steel alloys.
Another benefit of having equipment coatings is that it protects your machinery from particulate residues. Particles of iron or plain steel can get into machinery and equipment parts. They can get deposited into your equipment through friction and eventually cause bimetallic corrosion.
Another factor that can cause commercial equipment and machinery to break down is extreme temperature. Steel and metals are usually resistant to high temperatures since they have very high melting points. However, machines can get hot after long hours of operation, reducing metallic parts’ heat resistance. Machinery coatings can protect against more elevated temperatures, allowing you to extend the usable life of your investments.
Benefits of Commercial Heavy Equipment Machinery Specialty Coatings
In addition to providing a fresh, pleasing look, specialty coating materials such as epoxy protects structural components, reducing wear and tear and extending the working life of your equipment.
For harsh environments, high-temperature coatings can be used to withstand temperatures of up to 1,500 degrees Fahrenheit. In addition, chemical-resistant coatings provide further protection. To safeguard outdoor equipment, you can add a UV-resistant top coat to retain color and prevent erosion of the substrate coating.
Labeling is another vital function of painting machinery and equipment, as critical components can be color-coded for safety and operational purposes.
