Session 11: Corrosion & Wear Deposit Coatings
• Get an overview on agricultural demands for strong corrosion protection
• Learn about solutions for improved abrasion resistance
• Experience the performance of combined electrolytic and zinc flake surface finishes
Advances & New Trends in Surface Finishes/Engineering
Zinc/Alloys/High Performance & Passivation Systems
Applications in the field of Agricultural Industry have always been demanding in matters of corrosion protection; especially after Chromates have been phased out.
The influence of the different outside climates all around the year together with tough abrasive environments and the challenging chemical attack through fertilizers such as UAN (Urea Ammonium Nitrate) are requiring a reliable state of the art surface protection.
This presentation will summarize the general requirements of the agricultural demands and will highlight the latest developments of combined electrolytic plating like Zinc or Zinc Nickel in combination with Zinc Flake based finishes. This includes bulk parts as fasteners up to large complex shaped rack spin parts and its performance of cathodic corrosion protection in this extreme environment. Dedicated performance examples including data of improved chemical or abrasion resistance will be explained and shared with the audience.
