medical instruments for dentists and surgeons, machine components used in the
production cycles of the food-manufacturing industry or the wide range of
components you can find in your car: the requirements placed on the surface
properties of many materials are high. However, not all materials are able to
meet these high demands from the very beginning.This is where surface coatings come into
play. Invisible in the background to many a person, surface treatments make the
functionality of components possible in the first place. Apart from significantly
improving the components' durability and service life, they also provide
for more efficiency and increased profitability.
As is the
case in the area of printing machines, for instance. Gaskets in doctor blade
chambers are used to seal inking rollers towards the outside. If these gaskets
are not properly coated, adhesions will occur. These will in turn result in
cumbersome cleaning work and machine downtime, both of which cost time and
money. With an appropriate coating, however, the gaskets cannot be used just
once, but several times, which also increases the machines' service life.
comes to the topic of sustainability, surface technology can accomplish
extraordinary things.On behalf of a
renowned supplier to the international automotive industry, Aalberts surface
treatment applies coatings to innovative brake disks for premium cars.Not only does the applied coating system
offer corrosion protection and elegant optics, but it is, above all, extremely
resistant to wear.As a result, the
formation of brake dust is reduced by 90%. Less brake dust means less
particulate matter, which again constitutes a significant contribution to
improving the environment.
different processes, Aalberts surface treatment refines more than one billion
components each year-for all
key industries. It is the coating that makes the difference, and we are really
proud of that!
