The Hi-Tech Surface Coating Service
Armourcote Hi-Tech Industrial Coatings provide surface coatings which improve product performance, increase productivity and improve lifecycle costs. We can help you increase the lifespan of your components. Our coating services include;
Protective Coatings for Abrasion and Wear Resistance
There are a number of wear mechanisms which can reduce the working life of metallic parts. Actions such as fretting, sliding, vibration, friction, galling and erosion will result in wear on a component.
The solution to your component wear problems will depend on the specific circumstances, but we can advise and offer alternatives. These may involve the application of fluoropolymers or dry film coatings to the substrate to reduce friction. It may involve the application of a harder substance which will endure the mechanical actions placed on the part.

Corrosion Resistant Coatings
Environmental factors and reactions to industrial chemicals can severly degrade the life expectancy of metal components. You have numerous corrosion resistant coating options to help combat the effects of corrosion and reduce the associated costs and time delays.
We are able to provide sophisticated single or multipart surfaces which resist the attack of aggressive media and environments. Depending on the circumstances and the nature of the problem, the solution could involve fluoropolymers, epoxy paint systems, or dry film lubricants - all of which can be extremely effective when used in the correct manner.
Find out how we have used corrosion resistant coatings to solve galvanic corrosion and uniform corrosion issues for our customers in the Dry Film Lubricants, and Epoxy Paint Systems sections.
Anti-Friction / Friction Control Coatings
Complementing our corrosion and wear resistant coating services are our friction control services. In many industrial applications, such as sub sea components, it is either impossible or impractical for components to be lubricated using liquid lubricants.
In such cases we could coat the components using dry film lubricants such as Xylan (PTFE), Molycote and Everslik (both Molybdenum Disulphide). Dry film lubricants reduce wear, galling, and heat generation, thereby reducing running and maintenance costs, machine downtime and operational limitations. In most circumstances, they will exceed the operating capabilities of conventional mineral and synthetic oils.
