GLISS-COAT® describes a range of dry lubricant coatings developed by Aalberts surface treatment. While these functional anti-friction coatings reduce friction and wear, they also avoid squeaking and creaking noises. Once applied, most of the GLISS-COAT® coatings are matte dark gray or black. When pressurized, they take on a shiny appearance and their coefficient of friction decreases.
Depending on the process and your company’s specific requirements, the coating is either sprayed on or applied in immersion centrifuges. Both the coating thicknesses and their tolerances are assured by largely automated application methods. GLISS-COAT® systems consist of organic binding systems which, depending on the process, are filled with different solid lubricants. Depending on the process, GLISS-COAT® coatings are either sprayed on or applied in coating drums. The thickness tolerances of these functional coatings may be adjusted. Depending on the process, the adjustment range is between +/- 10 µm and/or +/- 15 µm. Both the coating thicknesses and their tolerances are assured by largely automated application methods. Depending on the coating method used, it is possible to coat all technically relevant metals, light metals and plastics. However, we are always willing to go the extra mile for our customers and to think outside of the box. We have developed, for example, GLISS-COAT® coatings for special applications: Our range of successfully coated materials now also includes paper, fleece, plastic and metal foils as well as ceramics. This needs-based modification is possible, because GLISS-COAT® coating systems are our in-house developments.
