Thermal spray coatings: impregnation and sealing
Safety that goes deep! Capillary-active impregnation and sealing of thermal spray coatings. Reliable penetration protection against water, oils, air, gases and aggressive media. Sustainable quality with short process times and low costs.
Product overview: dichtol for thermal spray coatings
TS layers always have process-related porosities and micro-cracks. As a result, they are not gas-tight and permeable to liquids. It is possible that under the thermal spray coating corrosion occurs on the substrate and leads to premature failure of the coating. As a consequence, the TS coatings can not reach their expected service life, they fail prematurely.
In order to prevent the infiltration of corrosive media to the substrate, the coating must be provided with a protective barrier. The goal of sealing is to close or fill all open cavities. Dichtol is a capillary-active sealer that penetrates deeper into porous thermal spray coatings than comparable products. The simple and versatile application of dichtol (brushing or spraying) makes it easy to use even on complex structures. Flame, plasma, arc and even HVOF sprayed coatings are protected against premature failure by sealing with dichtol. Permanently!
Maximum tightness: dichtol from DIAMANT®
Extend the service life of your thermal spray coatings! Our polymer sealer provides permanent corrosion protection, is solvent and temperature resistant, can be processed on hot surfaces up to 120°C and has a solids content of up to one hundred percent! We are happy to develop, together with you, the right sealer for your specific application.
Without vacuum or pressure, you can use dichtol from DIAMANT® by spraying or painting for maximum tightness and add extra safety and function (such as dielectric strength) to your TS coating.
