Protective Coatings for Metals

Advanced Oxidation and Decarburization Control

Oxy-Shield protective coatings stand out as an innovative and advantageous solution in the panorama of ceramic coatings for metals, providing advanced control over the oxidation and decarburization of metals. Their effectiveness is demonstrated by a series of benefits that go far beyond simple superficial protection. This type of ceramic coating, in fact, not only delays the formation of oxide scaling, guaranteeing significant economic savings, but at the same time reduces surface waste. Furthermore, these surface coatings minimize secondary finishing operations, limit the loss of precious metal, and tangibly contribute to the overall improvement in the quality of the final product.

The feature that makes the Oxy-Shield metal ceramic coating unique is its ability to prevent the diffusion of harmful gases both inside and outside the metals. This function is fundamental to protect the metal from unwanted processes, preserving its integrity and maintaining its mechanical and aesthetic properties high.

Where Can Protective Ceramic Coatings Be Used?

The application of Oxy-Shield water-based protective coatings occurs strategically before certain heat treatments, such as heating for rolling, forging, hot extrusion, and annealing. The use of ceramic coatings guarantees optimal protection from the early stages, effectively preventing damage caused by phenomena such as oxidation and decarburization.

ATP‘s Oxy-Shield protective coatings are very versatile products, by modifying the chemical composition, it is possible to apply them to a wide range of metals. Here are some examples:

  • titanium alloys
  • stainless steels
  • tool steel
  • nickel alloys
  • carbon alloys
  • light alloys
  • zirconium alloys

How can Oxy-Shield Protective Ceramic Coatings be applied?

Oxy-Shield protective coatings offer unprecedented flexibility of use, featuring different application modes to adapt to specific production needs. The brushing application is particularly precise, ideal for artisanal work or for components with complex geometries. Immersion application, on the other hand, is extremely effective for protecting large surfaces, guaranteeing a complete and homogeneous coating.

Spraying is the most versatile application type, perfect for large-scale applications or high-speed production. Its ability to quickly cover large areas makes it ideal for industrial processes that require efficiency and reduced time. Flow coating, alternatively, guarantees a uniform distribution of the coating, and is designed for large-scale processes that require impeccable protection over the entire surface.
