Case Studies from High heat solutions

Go beyond temperature resistance boundaries in your protective coating with 500°C continuous resistance and up to 800°C peak!

Protective coatings is a challenging application and current solutions, such as silicone, are not able to endure temperature higher than 550°C (peak) for more than 16 hours and are not providing a satisfying level of chemical and mechanical resistance. Would you value a coating capable of resisting to extreme temperature up to 800°C (peak temperature) and to 500°C continuously?

Exceed current high heat solutions overall performances with this brand new polytitanocarbosilanes based materials available as a resin or a ready to use film coating providing higher temperature resistance, improved chemical, mechanical and corrosion resistance compared to silicon!
