Knife makers are well aware of the challenges tied to the heat treatment of tool steels. Oxidation, decarburization, and scaling can compromise the structural integrity of the blade, leading to quality control issues, increased material waste, and extra time spent on remediation. With the stakes being high in terms of both time and material cost, a reliable solution is required to protect the metal during the heat treatment process. Furthermore, due to diverse manufacturing setups, a flexible application method—whether it be dipping, brushing, or spraying—is an essential feature.
Advanced Technical Products offers ATP-641, a water-based high-temperature anti-scale coating, designed to minimize the challenges that knife makers face during heat treatment. ATP-641 is formulated to provide a strong barrier between the metal and the oxygen, thereby controlling oxidation and preventing scale formation and decarb loss. In addition, ATP-641 accommodates diverse knife making needs by being suitable for various application methods—dipping, brushing, or spraying.
By adding ATP-641 to their heat treatment process, knife makers can expect:
- Minimized formation of oxide scale
- Drastic reduction in pitting
- Reduced decarb loss
In turn, these benefits contribute to better quality knives, increased productivity due to reduced rework and waste, and potential cost savings. With ATP-641, Advanced Technical Products aims to provide knife makers a reliable, flexible, and effective solution, allowing you to focus more on the art and science of knife making and less on the challenges of heat treatment.
