Silicone grease is commonly used for lubricating & preserving rubber parts, such as O-rings. Additionally silicone grease does not swell or soften the rubber, which can be a problem with hydrocarbon-based grease. It functions well as a corrosion-inhibitor & lubricant for purposes that require a thicker lubricant. Thermal grease often consists of a silicone grease base along with added thermally conductive fillers. It is used for heat transfer abilities rather than friction reduction.

Polyester Powder Coatings allows long-term exterior durability, high performance mechanical properties & over-bake resistance. Polyester powder is widely used for decorative parts where a good resistance to sunlight (ultraviolet rays) are required. Many automotive trim components & other exterior parts are coated with polyester powders.
Nylon is a thermoplastic. Meaning its chemistry does not change when it is melted to the metal part. Nylon will melt and re-melt if the metal part is heated again. Nylon coating powder is aesthetically attractive when applied properly but is never specified simply because it looks good. Costing more than 3 times the typical paint or powder finish, nylon is specified for functionality IE: slip, sound dampening, flange linings, and medical case brackets. Other types of parts we apply nylon to are: drive splines, glove box strikers, door strikers, seat springs, and various clips and clamps used in the aerospace and auto industries. Nylon powder for use in coating metal can be purchased in two chemistries: nylon 11 or nylon 12. What is the difference? The chemist may argue there are plenty of differences, however, practically speaking Nylon 12 is slightly less hygroscopic than Nylon 11 (less than 1%) Nylon 12 typically will have lower gloss, and nylon 12 may be slightly less expensive to purchase depending on the amount ordered. When buying nylon, gloss can not be specified. Generally, nylon 11 is around 70 gloss. Nylon 12 is typically 30 gloss. Gloss level will be the same batch to batch, and will only vary depending on the manufacturing process. Nylon is considered a "softer" coating, easily machinable, but can not be easily marked with a fingernail.
Polyurethane powders have excellent flow characteristics with excellent chemical and mechanical properties. Outstanding corrosion resistance and excellent external exposure properties make them suitable alternative to polyester powders. GENERAL FEATURES Polyurethane powder contains polyurethanic resins cured with curing agents. The powder forms protective and decorative film along with enhanced outdoor resistance. The protective film have good resistance to mechanical damage, detergents, fuels and oils.
Some anti-corrosion materials are available in water-based versions. These green paints have a longer dry time, but meet most environmental requirements & have excellent protective qualities.
The Anti-Corrosion Epoxy Multi-Component product is highly resistant to marine & industrial environments, buried conditions, ground water, effluents, salt water & a wide range of oils & chemicals.
Zinc coatings when applied to blasted steel provide excellent anti-rust spray coating corrosion protection, weathering protection & very good resistance to salt water & solvents. Inorganic zinc coatings provide excellent anti-rust corrosion protection when used in chemical plants, refineries & coastal or offshore installations. This coating can provide even better corrosion protection when a top coat is applied. Inorganic zinc coatings are compatible with epoxies, phenolics, acrylics, silicones & many other coatings.
Solvent-free epoxy coatings are designed for long-term protection of steel & concrete structures against corrosion, abrasion & chemical attack. Operating temperature ranges from –40F to 1040F.

Anti-Corrosion Epoxy is applied for active anti-corrosive & anti-rust protection of iron & steel surfaces that are to be coated. It is extremely hard & resistant to friction. It is particularly resistant to diluted acids, alkalis, petroleum products, some solvents, water, sea water, and more.
Bitumen is an oil-based substance. It is a semi-solid hydrocarbon product produced by removing the lighter fractions (such as liquid petroleum gas, petrol & diesel) from heavy crude oil during the refining process.
Used for the steel structures of steel pipeline, steel frame, bridge & plant facilities for effective, long-term substrate protection.
Anti-fouling paint, or bottom paint, is a specialized coating applied to the hull of a ship or boat to slow the growth of sub-aquatic organisms that attach to the hull & can affect a vessel's performance & durability.
Polyurethane coatings are often used for the corrosion protection of steel because they are particularly economical to apply. They dry quickly & can therefore be over-coated in short intervals. They can also be applied independently of the weather conditions & are resistant to impact.
Enamel paint air dries to a hard, typically glossy finish, and is used for coating surfaces that are outdoors or otherwise subject to hard wear or temperature changes.
Polyurethane (PU or PUR for short) is not a single material with a fixed composition, but instead a range of chemicals sharing similar chemistry. It is a polymer composed of organic chain units joined by urethane or carbamate links. Most polyurethanes are thermosetting polymers & do not melt when heated unlike thermoplastic polyurethanes which do.
Two-component polyurethanes (also called 2C PUR) have the advantages of single component polyurethane adhesives, but cure more quickly through larger gaps & are not dependent on moisture/heat for curing.
This adhesive is highly resistant & aggressive sticking to almost any substrate despite its easy fit application properties.
MS Polymers are the next generation of silicones & mastics. Unlike their counterparts these products adhere well to most substrates without the use for specific primers. By using these products you can reduce the risk of application mistakes.
Water-Based Wood Stains have all the advantages of oil-based stains. They spread easily, can be repaired, blend effortlessly & have plenty of open time. The thicker formula allows for controlled penetration, which will reduce blotching on softer woods such as Aspen, Pine & Maple.
A wood stain consists of a colorant suspended or dissolved in an agent or solvent. Colored, or ''stained", finishes do not penetrate the pores of the wood to any significant degree.
Chemical Agent Resistant Coating (CARC) is available in a water-based solution for environmental protection.
Chemical Agent Resistant Coating (CARC) is a paint commonly applied to military vehicles to provide protection against chemical & biological weapons. The surface of the paint is engineered to be easily decontaminated after exposure to chemical warfare & biological warfare agents.

Catalyzed polyurethane clear coats and paints are prized for their durability and versatility around the world. They are used on everything from wood cabinetry, mill work and furniture to planes, trains, and automobiles. They are usually mixed with isocyanates in the hardener. The isocyanate component of polyurethane reacts with moisture in the air and form a hard crystalline structure.

Top Coat Epoxys are used for decorative flooring applications, such as Terrazzo flooring, chip flooring & colored aggregate flooring.
Two-part epoxy coatings were developed for heavy duty service on metal substrates & use less energy than heat-cured.
Water-based polyurethane is popular because of its low odor & low toxicity. It goes on clear without adding a faint color like oil-based versions do & it dries much faster.
Multi-Component Epoxy Acid Catalyzing (AC) systems require a hardener or catalyst to dry/cure, which works by starting & maintaining the binder's curing process until the chemical reaction is complete. The solvent evaporates prior to & during the chemical reaction concluding a final film of lacquer, paint or filler. The catalyst is moisture-sensitive and requires a Flowmax® technology protection.
