Thermoplastic Coating

Pershore Dip Coating provide thermoplastic coating in Worcester and surrounding areas for a range of metals.

What Is thermoplastic coating?

Thermoplastic coating is an efficient and versatile process for adding a durable protective plastic layer to metal components. First developed in the 1950s, metal parts are coated with a layer of thermoplastic material, which becomes warm to the touch when heated.

A thermoplastic coating service can ensure that vital metal components are protected from exposure to moisture, chemicals and other corrosive substances. This corrosion resistance is essential for extending the lifespan of metal components across a range of industries. It’s particularly useful for metal components used in outdoor or corrosive environments.

A thermoplastic coating service can provide your metal components with the high degree of protection they need.

The Thermoplastic Coating Process

Thermoplastic coating is a simple but highly effective process. Steel parts are heated to between 250 and 400 degrees Celsius, depending on the type of coating required. The parts are then submerged into a tank filled with plastic particles. These particles then melt onto the coating creating a smooth and continuous plastic coating. A thermoplastic coating service can also complete the process via electrostatic spray. This adaptability and ease of application makes it a cost-effective and versatile process.

Protection and Durability Combined

Thermoplastic coatings create a consistent, impermeable plastic barrier that protects metal components and helps to extend their lifespan. It provides a tough and resilient surface that’s able to withstand friction, impact and abrasive materials. This makes the process particularly valuable in any application with high wear and tear.

In industries where metal parts may come into contact with different chemicals, thermoplastic coatings serve as a protective shield. Some thermoplastic coatings are also excellent electrical insulators, making them indispensable in electronic applications where conduction needs to be prevented. Thermoplastic coatings can withstand a wide range of temperatures, making them suitable for applications where there may be extremes of high or low temperatures, such as aerospace or automotive industries.

A Versatile Process for a Range of Industries

Thermoplastic coating services regularly works with a range of industries where metal components require added protection. Thermoplastic coatings are widely used across the vehicle industry for underbody parts and aesthetic features. In the aerospace industry, thermoplastic coatings are used on aircraft components to provide resistance to extreme temperatures, wear and corrosion. In the marine industry, thermoplastic coatings protect against saltwater corrosion and abrasion.

Thermoplastic coatings are also extensively used in the construction industry, electronics and chemical processing, and this is just the tip of the iceberg.
