COATINGS: Typical questions about surface technology
WHAT IS THE CONNECTION BETWEEN LOCTITE/HENKEL AND SURFACES OR COATINGS?
The term surface technology/coating refers to the repair and protection of surfaces. Henkel (Loctite) has experience accumulated over many years in the area of (adhesive) joints between various materials. This has recently led, among other things, to new product lines in the field of surface technology. The use of suitable materials can increase reliability, improve operating safety, save time by quick repairs and reduce costs, e.g. for replacing parts.
SO WHO NEEDS THAT KIND OF THING?
Loctite surface technology is used wherever media cause wear. Abrasive wear, chemical and mechanical effects, erosion, corrosion and cavitation can cause damage to machinery and plant. Surface damage of this kind can be remedied with Loctite products.
WHY EPOXY RESINS?
Epoxy resins can be processed quickly and easily, are very long-lasting and have very good mechanical and chemical resistance to aggressive media.
IS IT ACTUALLY LONG-LASTING?
Surfaces can be permanently restored, provided the surfaces are pre-treated well (free from oil and grease, no loose pieces) and the various materials are handled correctly. As a result the surfaces regain at least their original properties.
IS IT APPROVED?
Our epoxy materials have been tested and are approved, some even for use in applications involving drinking water.
CAN ONE DO THE PROCESSING ONESELF?
Yes, with no problems. We will gladly give you information about it.
However, it is advisable to employ an experienced user to coat the first parts. As a Henkel Coating centre (Henkel Certified Applicator Center), we will gladly help you.
WHAT DOES THAT KIND OF THING COST?
Prices depend on the required surface quality and the pack size. They are between 15 and 500 euros.
