Protective Coatings for Aircraft and Automotive Components.
Aircraft metallic and electrical components can be put through extreme rigors during normal use. Temperatures at which they operate can vary from -50 degrees to several hundred degrees. In addition to extreme temperatures, parts can suffer the friction effects when the aircraft is moving at several hundred miles per hour. Finally, some parts will need to withstand the corrosive elements of airplane fuels, salt, hydraulic fluids and other chemicals.
Likewise, automotive parts can be subject to the same chemical corrosion as aircraft. They may also be subjected to a steady dose of road salt, water and the extreme heat put off by the engine.
With both types of machines, premature wear on components leads to a smaller useful life and continuous repairs. In some cases, premature failure of a component can be fatal.
This is why aircraft and automobile manufacturers use coatings to protect vital parts. The coating itself must perform several jobs. It must be waterproof. Is must handle both extreme cold and extreme heat. It must be robust enough to protect against chemical corrosion. And especially in aircraft manufacturing, is must perform these functions with just a thin layer so as not to add undue weight to the plane.
Fortunately, there is a clear metal protective coating that can meet these standards and is used by both types of manufacturers. It is a nylon based coating that comes in liquid form. It is waterproof and protects against humidity. It will meet heat extremes from -70 degrees F to over 300 degrees F. It also protects against a wide range of common corrosive elements.
It can be used on a wide variety of parts, because it can be applied in a number of ways. Larger areas can be applied like paint, with either a roller or a sprayer. Smaller electrical parts can be dipped. It dries to a clear, lightweight film. For parts that may be subjected to UV rays, there are tinted versions of the product available. Unused product can be sealed for future use and has a shelf life of up to 6 months.
