DURNI-COAT is used to coat ferrous and non-ferrous materials, and is ideal for the coating of metals and plastics.
The process does not use external electricity sources, working instead in electroless deposition. Materials are coated in an aqueous process solution, with a specific number of nickel ions. During this process, the ions are reduced into metallic nickel.
The chemical reacting agents and formulators of the electrons are hypophosphite ions, which are transformed by the oxidation process in the course of the reaction. A nickel-phosphorus alloy layer then forms on the material’s surface.
The wear and corrosion resistance of this layer depends on its phosphorous content, which can be increased or reduced depending on the electrolyte’s composition.
With the valuable properties offered by the DURNI-COAT, coated materials can be used in a diverse range of sectors, including:
- Mechanical engineering
- Fittings construction
- Automotive industry
- Office and data technology
- Chemical industry
- Printing machines
- Railway engineering
- Electrical engineering
- Energy and reactor engineering
- Aircraft industry
- Household appliance industry
- Hydraulic and pneumatic components industry
- Communications technology
- Food processing industry
- Measuring and control technology
- Pharmaceutical and medical device engineering
- Textile machinery construction
- Defence industry
