Protective Coatings that Control Oxidation/Decarburization
Oxy-Shield Coatings are advanced, water-based, non-hazardous and cost effective metal and graphite protection systems. They are formulated to protect metals and alloys from oxidizing or contaminating atmospheres at high temperatures for extended times. The coatings prevent the diffusion of gases into and out of the metals.
The water-based coatings are applied prior to heating for rolling, forging, hot-extruding, annealing or other heat treatment.
Oxy-Shield Coatings are cost-effective because they retard the formation of oxide scale, reduce surface rejects, minimize secondary finishing operations, reduce the loss of valuable metal while improving product quality.
Oxy-Shield Coatings are effective up to 2400°F.
We custom-formulate coatings to meet your hot-working needs.
