Bodycote Introduces Tech100 PEEK™ Polymer Coating

Published on 2009-07-28. Author : SpecialChem

Bodycote Metallurgical Coatings, a leading provider of Bodycote K-Tech high performance chemically formed ceramic coatings, has introduced a new range of polymer coating products: Tech100 PEEK™ Polymer, which offers customers non-stick properties and improved performance for products in demanding corrosion and temperature environments.

Operations Director, Mr Stewart Gibson, says, "We have been researching the polymer coatings market in order to meet customers' expressed needs for a high performance material with non-stick properties and improved mechanical performance at higher temperatures. Tech100 meets these requirements while maintaining electrical resistance, chemical resistance, dimensional stability and low permeability/moisture absorption."

This innovative new coating product line is based on Victrex® PEEK™ polymer and is designed to perform in the most demanding environments, specifically in applications requiring a combination of high temperature, mechanical performance and dimensional stability. The new polymer launches with two grades: Tech100 pure PEEK and Tech104 PEEK plus graphite. Ceramic filled grades will follow shortly.

Eco-friendly Tech100 coatings were developed to fill the gap found in many existing coating technologies today. Whether applied to industrial, aerospace, automotive, oil & gas, food processing, semi-conductor, electronic or pharmaceutical parts, Bodycote Tech100 coatings are a great choice for engineers looking to improve the wear and corrosion performance of the parts in their applications.

Tech100, a water-based liquid dispersion coating, offers exceptional scratch, wear and corrosion resistance, low friction, anti-stick, high temperature performance, strength and durability. It is a one-coat system - with proper substrate pre-treatment no additional primer is required.

Tech100 PEEK™ polymer is a linear, aromatic, semi-crystalline thermoplastic, widely regarded as one of the highest performing thermoplastics in the world. It offers a unique combination of properties to help processors and end users to reach new levels of cost savings, performance and product differentiation. When compared to other polymers, the Tech100 series has improved mechanical performance, especially at higher temperatures up to 260°C continuous use. It is FDA Food Industry approved.

Bodycote customers now have another choice when stipulating polymer coatings for applications in demanding temperature environments such as those found in the aerospace, automotive, oil & gas, nuclear or food industry. Equipment or parts coated with Tech100 polymer have the potential to perform better, last longer and help customers realise long-term cost savings. Additionally, Bodycote HVOF thermal sprayed coatings, combined with Tech100, provide extreme wear resistance with anti-stick and anti-fouling properties.
