Poeton offer a comprehensive range of coatings for the Energy and Power Generating Industries. These encompass:
Our coating service for the energy and power generation industries is aimed at meeting the challenge provided by the need for low friction, low wear and electrical insulation. We are focused on supporting low carbon technologies with our existing range of Apticote finishes, and with the development of new coating solutions through our R&D and technical Services. Using our expertise in characterising and understanding wear and corrosion processes, we work with our customers on a project basis, ensuring that the most effective coating solution is identified.
Poeton coatings are used in fuel cells, electric cars, wind turbines, solar arrays, nuclear power generation and other power related applications. In keeping with the ethos of the sector, Poeton are committed to developing and introducing more environmentally acceptable coatings for industry around the world. To this end, our R&D department is at the forefront of research to find alternatives to traditional, often hostile, coating processes like hard chrome plating and chromic acid anodising.
Our experience and track-record is unrivalled, bringing performance benefits to all aspects of the sector.
Which Apticote coating do I specify?
Problem - The customer required the ultimate in anti-corrosion treatments, one to eliminate any possibility of damage to storage drums containing low risk contaminated nuclear waste. The specification was for no corrosion after 50 years storage, on all parts of the drum, an inner container, an outer and a lid.
Solution - The Apticote treatment consists of a sacrificial 'super-zinc' base coating with a proprietary epoxy polymer top coat. The combination was perfected in the Poeton laboratory, using accelerated corrosion testing, first on the enhanced zinc coating, on a range of epoxy formulations for the top coat, then on the final combination of the two. In our tests, the extremely tough epoxy formulation has protected test panels for ten years, with absolutely no signs of deterioration! And to date, after many more years of storage, the customer's drums have exhibited zero problems.
The coating can also be specified to prevent saltwater or atmospheric corrosion of components or structures in marine, defence and industrial applications.
